Cuthbert Origin and Meaning

The name Cuthbert is a boy's name of English origin meaning "famous, brilliant".
Years ago we might have said that this name was unthinkable, but with old-fashioned names being so popular right now (consider Atticus, Leonidas, Arthur, Jasper, Augustus etc) what's to stop Cuthbert from becoming more wearable? Bertie is a cute (and very fashionable) nickname option for this grand old name.
