Baby name meanings, usage and origin
Our goal is to bring you the most accurate information about baby boy names and baby girl names, including meaning, usage and origin. We are continually working at expanding our database. We draw from a wide range of resources, including academic reference works and popular books, to help us bring you the best baby name meanings we can.
Sometimes, there is not one "right" answer about the meaning, usage or origin. The nature of names, over the centuries and through different languages and cultures, is that they may change over time, and original meanings can be distorted or lost. In such situations, we either provide the most widely-accepted meaning, or else offer more than one.
We are always interested in hearing your feedback and suggestions. Be sure to if you have a comment or suggestion about a baby name!
