Beck Origin and Meaning

The name Beck is a boy's name of English origin meaning "small stream".

The popular single-named alternative singer (born Bek) has given this cool nature-meets-surname name a new lease of life. Another notable bearer is Beck Weathers, a Texan pathologist who survived the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, which was covered in the book and film Into Thin Air.

Outdoorsy yet refined, Beck still sits below the radar but could follow brother Beckett up the charts.
