Costner's Cowboy

Kevin Costner's wife Christine gave birth to a little boy, Hayes Logan, on February 12th. Hayes joins big brother Cayden Wyatt as well as half-siblings Annie, Lily, Joe and Liam. In an interview, Costner said he wanted to name his son Hayes after a cowboy character in a Western he's planning to film, because he believes that Hayes is a great Western name. But is it? Hayes, which has Old English roots and is a common surname, has never broken the top 100 most popular first names in any states, Western or otherwise. And the last time it was in the top 1000 first names nationwide was 1900 when it came in 714th place.
