English word name
"kept from knowledge or view"

Secret Origin and Meaning

The name Secret is a girl's name meaning "kept from knowledge or view".


In 2016, 13 baby girls in the United States were given this unusual word name -- at least according to the Social Security Administration. We can't help but suspect that some of those baker's dozen had parents who just refused to tell the federal government their daughter's name.
