About This Quiz

Dust off your cowboy hat, and saddle up your horse. By the time you finish telling us about yourself, we will know what you would have been named if you were born in the Lone Star State. Would it have been something like J.R., or would you have been named something more clever like Charlene? 

On December 29, 1845, Texas became a full-fledged member of the United States. Since then, it's been known for its space program, its dusty ranches, and its beautiful gulf beaches. With cities like Dallas and Austin growing by the day, Texas remains a popular choice for folks looking to live somewhere hip and interesting. If your mother had given birth to you there, what do you think she would have named you?

Throughout this quiz, we will find out as much about you as we can. Then, we will match your personality and your inner Texan traits to some of the most popular names in Texas history. Every name has a different meaning and feel, but which one would your mother have called you? Tell us about your 10 foot tall and bulletproof approach to life, and we'll let you know if you would have been a Suzanne or a Dusty or maybe something else!
