The name Adam is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "son of the red earth". Adam is ranked #77 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Bible Names for Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "Spelling Bee Name Game".
From the experts:
Adam -- a primal Old Testament name -- was revived as a 1960s cowboy name. Adam is not as popular as it once was and feels ready for a respite, replaced by newer A names like Aidan/Aiden, Avery and Axel. Its most prominent current bearers include Adams Sandler, Levine, Brody and Driver -- who plays a character named Adam on Girls.
Adam, of course, is the first man God created. It is also a generic term for mankind. Adam did not hit the U.S. Top 100 until 1970, peaking in the early '80s at Number 18.
