Eiffel Origin and Meaning

The name Eiffel is a boy's name .

An interesting international choice. Most closely associated with the Parisian monument, the Eiffel Tower, Gustave Eiffel was also responsible for much of the interior of the Statue of Liberty. The name itself is German, but was not the family's original surname and was added as an homage to the family's German homeland which featured the Eifel mountains. Eiffel could be used as a boys or girls name.
