Travis tends to be a popular name in Texas because of William Barret Travis, Texas commander at the Battle of the Alamo. The original family name was Travers.

Travis Bickle is the anti-hero of Martin Scorsese's 1976 film 'Taxi Driver' (played by Robert De Niro).
-- reservoirdoll1987  7/28/2005
Bickle's first name was an homage to the Mick Travis character (played by Malcolm McDowell) in If... (1968) and O Lucky Man! (1973), the latter of which was supposedly one of Scorsese's favorite films at the time.

Now there's also the popgroup Travis, I wonder if they took it from Travis Bickle.

The Scottish band Travis took the name from the character in the film Paris, Texas, not Taxi Driver.

My husband is a Travis, named for William Barret Travis of the Alamo. My Travis is a fun-loving, handsome, country boy with excellent manners and high moral standards. I like that I can associate the name with him and not some Travis Bickle (whoever that is supposed to be). Travis is a manly name with a fun ring to it. It just sounds good and solid and "all American" to me. I also really like the music and personality of Randy Travis to boot.

Many believe that Travis is a name for males only. Not any more, I am female with the name and I LOVE IT! Yeah, it gives me trouble sometimes, but it is a very unique name which has been converted to unisex.

I gave this name to my 3rd son, He is Travis Lawrence (Lawrence is a family name). He is 11 and likes his name, here in BC it isn't too common of a name.

This is the name of my firstborn. My husband, from Texas, named him. I'd never heard of it and it sounded strange. Of course now I'm used to it and love it because I associate the name with someone I love. It does sound awfully out-West, though.

This is my name. I guess I like it alright. It's cool because there aren't many Travises out there, but everyone's heard the name before. It's unique but not too out there. I've only come across 4 or 5 other guys named Travis in my lifetime. It seems to have a cowboyish flair to it, which is kind of cute.

This is a very attractive name.

This name always makes me think of the Scottish band. I don't really like most names that end in 's' or the 's' sound, and I especially dislike them on males. This name sounds quite old-fashioned to me despite Travis Barker.

It's okay, but it's too close to travesty.

I love this name. And I know there are girls with the name Travis, but when I think of someone with this name I imagine a sweet guy who may seem meek and timid, but can prove to be bold and be a fun person to be around.

I love this name! My fiance and I are planning to our soon-to-be-born son Travis. I'm a big country girl, so I like that Travis as that cowboy-ish sound to it. Very nice.

I don't know why, but this name reminds me of outer space.

One of the most redneck names ever! But still, it's actually not that bad.

This is my 1st son's name, and even though we chose it because it was a family name, I've always loved this name! We live in Texas and all 3 of my kids have Southwestern names, which I adore. My Travis is a kind, funny, redheaded, and extremely smart 11 year old who loves life and lights up the room with his charm.
