Jupiter Origin and Meaning

The name Jupiter is a girl's name meaning "godfather".

Jupiter may be known as the father of all the gods, but it's baby girls who have claimed his name for their own. Mythological and celestial baby names are hot across the board, so Jupiter was bound to rise in popularity. But the reason it's currently mostly female in the US is thanks to its similarities to the trendy feminine name Juniper.

While currently unconventional, be warned: Jupiter is on the fast track toward mainstream popularity, as quirky mythological names rise. Ed Sheeran chose Jupiter for his little girl in 2022, and Ashley Tisdale named her daughter Jupiter Iris in 2021 — both of which are likely to give it even more of a boost.
