Gender: M Meaning of Albert: "noble, bright" Origin of Albert: German Albert's Popularity in 2013: #421

This name remained stylish for over eighty years, but with its serious, studious image (think Einstein, Schweitzer), it's far from fashionable today. Still, along with such stalwarts as Walter and George, it could now make an unusual yet classic choice. It became especially popular in Britain following the 1840 marriage of Queen Victoria to the German Prince Albert.
