Though this name is derived from the Old English word “tucian” (someone who cleans or softens cloth), today it has nothing to do with fabric and everything to do with a cool attitude. It’s more often a last name (actor/comedian Chris Tucker, pro basketball player P.J. Tucker), but doing the first name proud are snowmobile racing superstar Tucker Hibbert and TV’s cable news host Tucker Carlson (who made wearing bow ties a thing a few years ago). The name was so appealing to actress Melissa Joan Hart that she gave it to her youngest son in 2012.
