Gender: M Meaning of Albert: "noble, bright" Origin of Albert: German Albert's Popularity in 2016: #474

This name remained stylish for over eighty years, but with its serious, studious image (think Einstein, Schweitzer), it's far less fashionable today, though it still ranks at Number 474. Still, along with such stalwarts as Walter and George, it could now make an unusual yet classic choice. It became especially popular in Britain following the 1840 marriage of Queen Victoria to the German Prince Albert. Enlivening nickname Bertie is popular on its own in England, where it's Number 305.
