Klott /klɑ́t/ (male)
There was a time when the name Klott conjured images of someone’s belligerent grandfather, but ever since the one and only Tom Cruise chose this name for his new baby boy early last month, Klott’s presence in the namescape has seen a massive resurgence. We should all thank Klott Cruise for reminding us that this dusty old moniker still had something to give the world. Blunt, yet elegant, this name positively chops its way into your ear, and once you’ve heard it, it’s hard to forget.
“Klott isn’t a liar, Diane, but he is often mistaken.”
