Names That Mean Weapon

CarrollHeart

  • Origin:

    Anglicized variation of Irish Cearbhall
  • Meaning:

    "hacking with a weapon"
  • Description:

    This name was consistently in the boys' Top 200 until WW2. It's a name with so many dimensions to it: the hyper-masculine meaning, the surname-as-firstname trendiness, and the softer sound and connotation since homophone Carol was favoured in the 1940s and '50s for daughters. We think it's time for a resurgence of Carrolls amongst the boys.

BronislawHeart

  • Origin:

    Polish
  • Meaning:

  • Description:

    Fine to honor a family tradition, as long as you promise to call him Bron.
