Gender: M Meaning of Cosmo: "order, beauty" Origin of Cosmo: Italian from Greek

We all heard it on "Seinfeld" as the long-concealed first name of Kramer, now some pioneering parents are wondering if this expansive Greek name that seems to embrace the whole cosmos could make a creative and cool choice for their baby.

Cosmo is the name of the Arabian-born patron saint of doctors.

In literature, Baron Cosmo Bradwardine is a character in Sir Walter Scott's novel Waverly and Cosmo Topper is the befuddled banker in Thorne Smith's humorous novel Topper.

In modern times Cosmo has become the short form for Cosmopolitan--both the magazine and the cocktail.
