Hemingway is a surname name, of course, but it instantly brings to mind legendary writer Ernest Hemingway. The Nobel Prize-winning writer penned some of the most enduring classics of 20th century American literature.
Not only do we remember his works, but we also remember his image. He’s a man of action, capable and rugged. Hemingway was also known as a world traveler, living in Europe and Cuba, and traveling extensively.
No surprise that the name appeals to modern parents. And yet, Hemingway is a big sound, and it doesn’t easily shorten to an obvious nickname. That hasn’t held back favorites like Sebastian, though, so perhaps Hemingway is more wearable today than it might have been in the past.
The numbers suggest that might be the case. 2015 was the first year Hemingway appeared in the US T0p 1000 date, with five newborn boys given the name.
