Gender: F Origin of Wren: English bird name Wren's Popularity in 2013: #807

Wren, a lilting songbird name, could be the next Robin, and makes a particularly pleasing middle name choice, as does her newly discovered cousin Lark. Wren entered the Top 1000 for the first time in 2013, and was one of the year's fastest-rising names -- it jumped 201 spots since 2012.

This petite bird was regarded in Ireland as the "magician of the birds" and the Druids considered it a bird of prophecy and, thanks to an early fable, it has also been known as King of the Birds.

For architects there's the link to the great Sir Christopher Wren, the celebrated eighteenth century designer of London's St. Paul's Cathedral.
