Howard has always suffered from a weakness of the knees. It is a painfully bland name that has been outdated for well over 50 years. What a surprise, then, that simply changing the first letter to a ‘P’ could transform it into one of 2015’s most dynamic male names. Perhaps it is the phonetic presence of the word ‘power’ that makes this name so special. Perhaps it is simply the allusion to the classic onomatopoiea, ‘POW!’ Perhaps it is something far more nebulous. We may never know. One thing is for sure, though. Due to this name’s steadily rising popularity, in a few years you won’t be able to throw a rock on the playground without hitting a Poward.
