Gender: M Meaning of Esmond: "graceful protection" Origin of Esmond: English

Though slightly haughtier and less accessible than cousin Edmond, Esmond could appeal to some parents seeing a distinguished appellation. It began being used (albeit sparingly) in England in the nineteenth century, possibly influenced by William Makepeace Thackeray's novel The History of Henry Esmond.

Most parents today would prefer the more popular Desmond.
