The name Albert is a boy's name of German origin meaning "noble, bright". Albert is ranked #452 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Old Man Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Quick Question Thread?!".
From the experts:
Albert has acquired a new gloss as one of the top royal baby boy names, a serious upgrade from its serious, studious image (think Einstein, Schweitzer). Albert remained popular for 80 years, and though it's far less fashionable today, it's still a widely used choice. 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.
