Gender: M Meaning of Everett: "brave as a wild boar" Origin of Everett: English variation of the German Eberhard Everett's Popularity in 2015: #135

Everett is a statesmanlike, wintry New England name chosen by over 3000 parents last year, when it shot up to Number 135, a fashion leap that can be credited to its similarity to trendy girls' names such as Eva and Ava. Its high point was about a century ago, when Everett was a Top 100 name -- and it could get there again: its current Nameberry rank is 90.

Everett Hills is a character in Eugene O'Neill's drama Mourning Becomes Electra. George Clooney and Dermot Mulroney have both played Everetts in recent films; author John Irving named his youngest son Everett, and singer Isaac Hanson has an Everett as well.
