Ready to share the meaning behind his newborn son’s name, Chris Lane has officially stated that the name, Dutton Walker Lane, was inspired by the hit TV series, Yellowstone.

While sharing details about the little one’s name, Lane reveals to PopCulture, “You can take on guess where we got that [name] from. [It is] from the TV show Yellowstone.” Chris further explains, “And we really love the name a lot. I know it’s a little different but I think it’s pretty cool.”

Chris and Lauren welcomed Dutton Walker Lane on June 8th. Lane took to Instagram to announce the birth by stating, “Words can’t describe the love i feel inside my heart for this little man! Thanks for all the prayers. I will never understand how @laurenlane birthed a 9 pound baby! DUTTON WALKER LANE welcome to the world.”

Lauren also shared an adorable picture of her holding Dutton. “Dutton Walker Lane born June 8th 2021,” she shares in the caption. “Your dad and I can’t get enough of all 9 pounds of you. Now back to baby cuddles and praising Jesus over and over again for this little miracle!!” 

Chris Name Suggestion That Lauren Quickly Shut Down

Chris also shares with PopCulture that Lauren previously shot down his initial baby name suggestion, which was “Rambo.” He then explains, “I was halfway joking, halfway serious. But I thought [the name] was kind of cool. I wanted to name him Rambo and Lauren shot me down really fast.”

Lane further tries to justify the name by stating that he believes Rambo is a “tough” name. “I’m like, ‘What can I name him that stands out and is tough?’” Chris recalls. “And I feel like coming up to bat, Rambo Lane. I mean, how could he not drop bombs, you know what I mean? Now teeing off on the first tee box, Rambo Lane, how that not stick out in a cool way? But yeah, [that was] shut down so hard.”
