The name Sawyer immediately brings to mind the adventurous and loveable title character of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. That, or the oft-shirtless hottie on TV’s Lost. Whatever the association, the name holds a relaxed and playful appeal. And it’s not just for boys anymore–Sawyer is becoming increasingly popular as a girls name too.
