There's a nursery rhyme that starts "Little Tommy Tucker sang for his supper."

I think Tucker is a strong, rugged, but kinda sensitive name, it shows strength and power, and it shows gentleness all at the same time. I love this name!

Tucker is a nice name, but I don't think that I could ever name a child something that rhymes with "fucker".

I'd never name my son Tucker because, um, there are a lot of dogs named Tucker.

Tucker is the 128th most common surname in the USA. It first arrived in the pre-USA colonies in the 1600s, and has "absorbed" many variations of independent national origin. While Southwest England (ie. Cornwall, Devon, South Wales) is one origin, there is also a proven Irish origin from the Gaelic O'Tuachair, as well as German, Polish and Jewish origins. One sould not be too hasty to presume that all Tuckers are of English origin. (Sources: US Census Bureau, and Dictionary of American Family Names, Oxford University Press, ISBN 0-19-508137-4).

I loathe this name. It sounds too much like a surname, it makes me think of dimwitted rednecks and frat boys, it sounds immature and sort of lower middle class, and it reminds me of that idiot Tucker Carlson.

I hate this name. It makes me think of either spoiled brats or dumb jocks.

I much perfer just Tuck, it sounds sweet to me. I can't put my finger on anything wrong with the full Tucker, but I don't like it as much.

Tucker Case is a character of Christopher Moore and has appeared in several of his books, like "The Island of the Sequined Love Nun" and "The Stupidest Angel".

This name rings a most prophetic tone. It bears true strength and integrity, while maintaining a simple and sound pronunciation. It is a rare and unique, only ever bestowed upon the most intelligible and articulate individuals. Those bold enough to bear this name, not sobriquet, prepare their most esteemed child for a life, lived never in fear nor shame, unlike many of you cynical fools would so verbosely state. I speak from absolute experience that one who bears this name will full-heartily, and bravely embrace the wholesome swarm of eager and foolish mellow individuals. As Albert Einstein once eloquently put it, great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from meager minds. Never fear, Tucker, as in the Latin motto, prevails.

I know a guy named Thomas who goes by Tucker, but I have no idea why. He's given it some positive associations, but it still sounds like a hillbilly name.
-- MoonAgeDaydreamer  5/23/2009
The name, to steal from above, is pure hill-billy trash. I'd gladly drop the T for a F. The comic appeal is priceless.

In addition, it's slang for food in Australia and New Zealand.

Reminds me of "Everybody Loves Raymond" when a boy was teasing Ray's daughter Ally.

Ray: Tease him back - think of something that rhymes with his name. What's his name anyway?

Ally: Tucker.

Ray: Errrrrrr...

I hate this name. It sounds so corny, every time I've heard it it's been used on the male love interest in a romance novel for teen girls. Not only that, but it sounds like a last name and it's only one letter off from 'fucker'.

Tucker Jenkins was a schoolboy character in Grange Hill in the last century, played by Todd Carty.

Made most famous by the comment "Flippin' 'eck Tucker" from his schoolmate Benny Green.

Why do people name their sons Tucker? It doesn't sound like a real name. Tucker, like Tanner, is a youthful, overly-modern thing that would only work if the boy stayed ten for the rest of his life. Unlike Tanner, however, Tucker can attract MANY unwanted nicknames: Fucker, hooker, tweaker, etc.

I love the name Tucker! I think it's really masculine and cool sounding. It's got a southern charm about it, which I love. I went to school with a Tucker, and no one ever called him fucker. Ever. I think people go way overboard about kids teasing because of names, kids will probably find SOMETHING to tease you about, but they really don't usually tease you because of your name. They're not THAT cruel, really. (Some are, but really most aren't! I'm a 13 year old myself, I know.)

I have it paired as Tucker Daniel on my list so he can have a more traditional name to fall back on in the event that he WAS indeed teased.

I first heard this name in a movie. Tucker was a cat and I have always loved this name. It's strong, yet sweet.
-- blueeyesparkle  12/30/2012
I knew a really jerky kid named Tucker, and trust me, it didn't take me (or any of the other kids) very long to figure out what his name rhymed with, and I was only ten. Parents, this is definitely one good reason not to name your son this.

Tucker Mouse was a mouse in The Cricket In Times Square (1960) and five other books of that series by George Selden.

Ok, to start off I am a Tucker, and secondly Tuckers like don't get a lot of love even though what a lot of people say is is true for a Tucker they are smart, kind, and very, VERY sensitive. If you hurt their feelings they're going to fight back. Tuckers are going to be the very best friend you ever had with tagged along said "bully" I don't believe In that. In fact, I actually get bullied by the name 'fucker' I mean, it's some what funny but after a while it gets annoying so all I have to say to this is don't call a Tucker that. It's funny, but not for long so just keep your mouth shut, ok? And lastly, GIVE THEM A LOT OF LOVE!

I think the name Tucker is masculine, manly and HOT. :D It's an awesome name! ;D.
-- LoveHeartKawaii  10/29/2014
Tucker is a fun, rugged name for a dog, and it's the 16th most common name for male dogs in the United States. It's also a common surname for people. However, it seems odd to me as a first name for a person. There are several human surnames that are popular as dogs' names (Tucker, Tanner, Bailey, Cooper) but have recently tried to gain acceptance as first names for children. However, as long as they remain so common as dogs' names, most people will never think of them as human first names, any more than Rover or Spot. Apologies to any Tuckers out there...
