Warren Origin and Meaning

The name Warren is a boy's name of French, English origin meaning "park-keeper".

Long lingering in limbo, Warren suddenly seems to be on the cusp of revival. One of the oldest recorded English surnames, Warren's popularity in the U.S. dates back to the nineteenth century, and by 1921, reached its peak at Number 24.

At one time it was bestowed in honor of General Joseph Warren, the first hero of the Revolution, who was killed at Bunker Hill. There have also been a number of notable first-named Warrens, including the 29th president, Warren Gamaliel Harding, financier Warren Buffett, actor Warren Beatty and musician Warren Zevon. NFL defensive tackle Warren Sapp was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2013.
