Gender: M Meaning of Atticus: "from Attica" Origin of Atticus: Latin Atticus's Popularity in 2013: #404

Atticus, with its trendy Roman feel combined with the upstanding, noble image of Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird, is a real winner. In fact so many people have been inspired by the character embodied by Gregory Peck that Atticus Finch was voted the greatest hero of American film by the American Film Institute.

The name of an important Roman literary figure named for the Greek region around Athens, Atticus has continued to rise in the past two years--up 150 places-- and is a firm Nameberry favorite.

Daniel Baldwin and Isabella Hoffman were ahead of the curve when they chose Atticus for their son born in 1996; since then Summer Phoenix and Casey Affleck named their little boy Atticus, and Tom Dumont made it the middle name for his son Rio.
