The name Baird is a boy's name of Scottish origin meaning "minstrel, poet". Baird and is often added to lists like Mystical Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "A Family of 10!".
From the experts:
Meaning bard, this is an original choice with poetic and melodic undertones. Bard itself has also come into consideration, both names bringing to mind Shakespeare and other literary lights.
The Scottish surname Baird's most notable bearer was John Logie Baird, the Scottish engineer and inventor of the televisor, the world's first practical television system in 1926, and also the world's first fully electronic color TV tube two years later. Some might also remember puppeteers Bil and Cora Baird.
