Gender: M Origin of Ledger: English surname

Ledger, another surname-turned-first name, was given to 177 boys in the USA last year. The name carries associations of the great and late Australian actor Heath Ledger. Although it's still a long way from the Top 1000, we predict that usage will increase over the next few years, particularly given the potential for Lej and Edge as nicknames.

Ledger is also the main character in Ingrid Law's novel Scumble.
