Names That Mean Furrow

BartholomewHeart

  • Origin:

    Aramaic
  • Meaning:

    "son of the furrow"
  • Description:

    Bartholomew is an apostle's name that's been out of favor for centuries but might appeal again to the parent in search of an old but rare choice. The challenge could be to avoid the Simpson-ish nickname. That character, by the way, has the full name of Bartholomew JoJo Simpson, and creator Matt Groening came up with Bart as an--uh oh--anagram for brat. Two old alternate nicknames are Barty and Tolly.

BartlebyHeart

  • Origin:

    English surname, probably related to Bartholomew
  • Meaning:

    "son of the furrow"
  • Description:

    Bartleby (that's his last name) the Scrivener is a famous Herman Melville character whose surprisingly powerful refrain was, "I would prefer not to." Or, in the immortal words of any two-year-old: No.

SitaHeart

  • Origin:

    Sanskrit
  • Meaning:

    "furrow"
  • Description:

    Sita's off-beat meaning becomes more powerful once you remember that Sita is the Hindu goddess of the harvest - therefore somewhat of a life-force.
