A classic New Testament name, Peter's popularity has been sliding since the 1950s, which makes it a good choice if you're seeking a less-used classic with many nice childhood associations, like Peter Rabbit and Peter Pan. The name came into being as a nickname given to the apostle Simon by Jesus. Fashionable international versions of Peter include the Italian Piero and Pietro.
