Rome Origin and Meaning

The name Rome is a boy's name .

Given that Rome is arguably the most important city in European history, it has been used as a first name remarkably little. However, Roman is now in the Top 100, so it was only a matter of time before parents started looking toward the city's actual name.

Over 300 baby boys were named Rome in the US in 2021, about ten times as many as the baby girls named Rome. The name hopped back on the boys' Top 1000 in 2019 after an absence of 120 years, and now seems to be headed straight up the charts.
