Drake and Josh is a hilarious NICK TV show!
Miamaya  3/25/2006
Though I like the name Drake I prefer it meaning "dragon" rather then "male duck". Personally I would rather my name mean "dragon" than "male duck".

I think of a duck when I hear this name.

I love the name Drake, although I think it's way too hard to find a good middle name for it.

If you give your son this name, you better hope none of the bullies at school are animal lovers! Like he wouldn't be "Duck Boy" from the get go!

It sounds better in Swedish, DRAA-KEH.

This is a wonderful name and I hate that it means "male duck."

I named my son Drake and it suits him perfectly. I know one meaning is "male duck" but the meaning "dragon" makes it very very cool. I did have a hard time finding a good middle name to go with it.

I don't even like this ugly name as a surname, much less as a first name. It sounds very harsh.

This name is awesome but it makes me think of ducks.

I like the name Drake since I grew up with it as my last name, but it is a bit odd meeting people who have it as a first name.

Drake is a really great name! You can easily imagine a guy with this name to have a great sense of humour. :)

How did the term "dragon" come to be applied to a male duck?

Drake Mallard, aka Darkwing Duck.

I've always liked the name Drake and although I don't know many people who go by this name, I think that just makes it more unique.

Aubrey Drake Graham is a Jewish-Canadian actor who starred as Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation but is now widely known as the songwriter, rapper, and singer Drake.
Poco  9/10/2012
Drake seems a bit early 2000's - perhaps because I associate it with the television show Drake & Josh. It used to appeal to me more; though I don't adore it, I feel that it has a place to be used.

A fictional bearer of the name is the crazy psychopath and secondary villain from Michael Grant's book series, "Gone".

Still a good name, I think. The books aren't that popular.

My son is named Drake James Leo. I find it to be a strong name and love the fact it means dragon.
lanajane  3/2/2015
I really like how this name looks and sounds, but I would never use it because of its meaning. I mean come on, a male duck! Who would want to be named after that? Yes, I know "Drake" is also derived from "dragon", but still it also means a male duck.
Alexanna  3/3/2015
This is my son's name and his name has never been referred to a "duck" only a Dragon or Drake the Vampire from the Blade movie. His middle name is Logan for those who need a good middle name. Kids at school LOVE his name and I do too.
madseasons  6/4/2015
I LOVE this name! Mainly because it means dragon (as you know, I'm milkweedDRAGON), but I didn't know it also meant male duck. It sounds nice to me, and it actually seems to be quite popular. I think it's better off meaning "Dragon".
Milkweeddragon  7/18/2015
Drake Bell also plays Spider-man in the Ultimate Spider-man TV show.
Milkweeddragon  7/18/2015
Drake is such a cool, hot name for a guy! The meaning "dragon" is so badass! I love this awesome name! :D.

It sounds low-class, and of course makes me think of two very annoying celebrities who have this name.
TyrannosaurusRegina  1/31/2016
I named my son "Drake Dee Emmanuel _____" I'm super proud of this name and a lot of people think it's brilliant because so many people have heard this awesome name but not many people have ever met somebody with this name!
AshleyLuvsDrake  3/19/2016
I think of a handsome, popular asshole when I hear this name.
