The name Clinton is a boy's name of English origin meaning "hilltop town". Clinton and is often added to lists like American Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Would you rather?".
From the experts:
Like many names that have strong political connotations, the attractiveness of the name Clinton will be affected by your world-view. But, taking politics out of the equation, Clinton has a lovely pastoral meaning, a strong sound and a tremendously wearable nickname - Clint - all which would seem to be in its favor for at least a second thought.
