Gender: M Meaning of Hardy: "bold, brave" Origin of Hardy: German

Hardy is a spirited and durable un-Germanic German surname that is starting to be used in this country.

British fashion designer Hardy Amies (born Edwin) is its best known bearer, and Thomas Hardy could make a literary namesake--as might the old Hardy Boys series of adventure books for young boys.
