I love this name, as it is what we named our son, now 2. Although at first we had several responses people either hated it or loved it. Now, all I and everyone else sees is a wonderful, intelligent, strong willed little boy who is just amazing with such a great name.

Two famous Fosters: Jodie Foster, actress, and Stephen Foster, songwriter.

In Swedish, "foster" means "foetus" and "missfoster" (like Ms Foster) means "freak of nature" - heh! Ours is a curious language, indeed.

Scissor-making is the best profession of all time. No exceptions. If you're man enough to honor our scissor-making forebears, this may be the name for you. If you're not gunning to use this name, no matter. You were probably the wimpy "safety scissors" type anyway.

Well, I just loved Wilted's comment! Haha :) I would make this my son's middle name, not first name. I like Foster the People, and when I was little I liked Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Plus, it just sounds cool. It just seems so... nurturing.

Mark Foster, lead singer (for lack of a better term) of Foster the People, is a famous bearer. Foster the People sang "Pumped Up Kicks." Also, there's "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends" that was on Cartoon Network.

I can't take a huge liking to this name. Just reminds me too much of foster care, Foster child, Foster parents, etc

In response to ThatMazerunnerfan, that's kind of why I like it. All of those things remind me of caring. The word "Foster" itself means to care for and I think that's adorable.
