As a Travis myself, I feel like the name Travis could have some hidden meaning, aliens from the future made the Travis and decided to raid Earth. What it means, I don't know but it has to do with an alien becoming someone's friend. 2 days before I was born my father had an encounter with a alien. The alien was using some sort of echolocation to communicate and it sounded like Travis. He knew that my name was supposed to be Travis from that moment on. When I was 8 and a half years old I heard a noise in the middle of the night. I knew my dad was outside and I thought nothing of it and went back to bed. When I woke up in the morning my mom was crying and we were missing my dad and multiple cattle. I wish we had cameras to capture the moment of my dad's abduction but it is what it is. This is proof that aliens exist for real. I miss my father dearly but I have come to accept the fact that my dad was taken for a bigger reason.

Travis was my first boyfriend's name and he was so ridiculously sweet. He was a very gentle, friendly guy. I'll always associate the name with that person.

I haven't any particular tie with Travis. I rate it 4/10. It is not boring nor ugly but I personally would not use it.

The ultimate "country western" name. Travis sits around on his front porch playing the banjo and singing about little dogies gittin' along.

I like this name, but it doesn't really sound sophisticated or smart. Nothing wrong with it, but it makes me think too much of trailer parks.

Travis gives me the impression of a southerner\country type. Some guy who comes from the south but who isn't necessarily "hillybilly" or "rednecked" or "unintelligent \ignorant." Just someone who originates from the south.

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.

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

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 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.

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

Travis McGee, famous fictional detective.
welovejamesarness  6/10/2008
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.

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 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.

Country music singer Travis Tritt also is a bearer of this name.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
