Gender: M Meaning of Heathcliff: "cliff near a heath" Origin of Heathcliff: English

Heathcliff is the now effete name of the original passionate macho hero of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, and also of the cartoon cat. It was chosen by fashionista Lucy Sykes for her son, and inspired the late Heath Ledger's name. But as much as we love the original Heathcliff, for a modern boy we'd recommend Heath....or Cliff.
