The name Conrad is a boy's name of German origin meaning "brave counsel". Conrad is ranked #577 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Saints' Names For Boys and discussed in our forums with posts like "Picky Parents BNG".

From the experts:

Conrad has a somewhat intellectual masculine image, a solid name that has been consistently on the popularity lists, especially well used in the 1920s and 30s, and given a pop of rock energy by the Elvis-like character of Conrad Birdie in Bye, Bye, Birdie--("We love you Conrad, oh yes we do!").

Conrad has been both a saints' name and a German royal appellation. One of its most well-known bearers is hotelier Conrad Hilton, great-grandfather of the Paris generation. Conrad was the prototypical Byronic hero of his poem "The Corsair." There have been fictive Conrads on shows like Weeds and CSI.

Corrado is the attractive Italian form.
