Although not too many families have a barrel maker in their ranks, Cooper belongs to a tradition of tradesman names ending in –er that includes Hunter, Archer and Carter. This occupational name and Old English surname first surfaced as a given name in the 19th century. Despite its British origins, Cooper also sports a classic, all-American nostalgia, with a hand from Gary Cooper. No doubt that Dylan Lauren, the founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar and the daughter of designer Ralph Lauren, wanted that vibe for her son Cooper Blue in 2015.
