Meaning:from the dales, the valley meadows
You can name your boy or girl Dallas even if they were not born in Dallas, Texas. The Scottish name means “from the dales, the valley meadows,” and comes with a laid-back vibe associated with cowboy culture. Though it’s been a boys' name in the US since the 19th century, it’s sometimes also used as a girls' name, which follows the trend of bestowing place names (Madison, Cheyenne, Savannah) on females. It’s also got some Hollywood cachet as the middle name of Jurassic World’s Bryce Dallas Howard.
