Lennon Origin and Meaning

The name Lennon is a boy's name of Irish origin meaning "small cloak or cape".

A growing number of high-profile (and other) parents are choosing to honor their musical idols, such as Hendrix, Presley, Jagger, and now Lennon. Lennon first came to notice when Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit used it for their son in 1999, and singer-musician Adam Pascal followed their lead in two years later. Thanks in part to female singer and actress Lennon Stella, it's now more popular for girls than for boys.

Lennon made it onto the popularity list in 2008.

In addition to its obvious Beatles connection, Lennon has a nice lemony feel.

Melissa Hicks Says:


I have a little boy named Lennon Oliver Universe last name. He's pretty spectacular. Really glad we chose this name for him, he's 6 and we still love his name. He's just now thinking his 2nd middle name is really cool but I usually don't list it unless it's on medical forms.
