Gender: M Meaning of Seth: "appointed, placed" Origin of Seth: Hebrew Seth's Popularity in 2013: #231

The long neglected name of Adam and Eve's third son after Cain and Abel, Seth is now being increasingly appreciated for its gentle, understated presence, and its strong middle-name potential. It reached a high of Number 63 in the year 2000, and is now at 231.

The name was adopted in England in the late Middle ages, then popularized by the Puritans after the Protestant Reformation.

Seth was widely heard in the American old West, as reflected in such vintage TV oaters as Wagon Train, featuring Major Seth Adams. George Eliot and Charles Dickens both created characters named Seth and there is a Twilight werewolf called Seth Clearwater. Currently, Seth has taken on a lighter persona via such high-profile comical Seths as SNL/Lat Night/'s Seth Meyers, the movies' Seth Rogen, and animated comedy creator Seth MacFarlane.
