Lennon Origin and Meaning

The name Lennon is a girl's name of English, Irish origin meaning "lover".

A growing number of high-profile (and other) parents are choosing to honor their musical idols, such as Hendrix, Presley, Jagger, and now Lennon, an Irish name for girls as well as boys with a wonderful meaning on many levels. 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 two years later.

Most recently, YouTube sensation and star of the hit television show Nashville, Lennon Stella, can be credited for this name's spike in popularity among girls. This may be why it entered the US Top 1000 for the first time in 2013.

joblox82 Says:


Love it.

Wittyusername103 Says:


It doesn't have to be feminine nor do guys names have to be masculine.

iipostmvh Says:


This doesn't bother me for a girl and I certainly have no issue with use on a boy. It reminds me of Lenna. Perhaps the fact that it isn't very popular either way helps make it acceptable for girls. In full disclosure I've always had a thing for unisex names.

Rain Says:


Sounds way too masculine.. there isn't anything at all feminine about this name, IMHO. What are you going to nickname her? Lenny? That's even more masculine.

Zelliew Says:


I agree

afinea Says:


It is a beautiful name for a girl. Nickname Leni. If you like it, go for it. No matter what the hatters say online.

neworleans Says:


This is so ugly.

izdicaprio Says:


To me this name sounds way to boyish to be a girls name. Makes me think of the name Lenny, which is completely masculine...I love love love John Lennon but this name on a girl...ouch.

Guest Says:


I've decided that I like Lennon better for a girl but it's great for a boy as well. I think it's cute. It has the en sound without being a millennial trend. I might actually have to put this on my list now!

Shishi Says:


I think it's way better on a boy, plus it sort of reminds me of a lemon.....

kitchi1 Says:


No intention to offend you or anything, but why? I do prefer Lennon on a boy, and I'd rather it for a middle name and especially for a last name, but there are much worse names imo.

Shishi Says:


not on a girl

cengel73 Says:


My friend has a girl named Lennon. It's grown on me and I think it is cute!

CocoWhite Says:


Would be extremely ironic if she grew up to hate the Beatles, though.

CocoWhite Says:


I prefer Lennon on a boy, honestly, but I have no problems with it on a girl. I think it sounds cool and retro and would instantly bump a girl up into cool-kid status.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Maybe for a boy, Lennon is alright. But for a girl it's awful! And yesh, Jagger is pretty bad... especially for a girl.

ahoymccoy Says:


Lennon probably isn't for me - never liked John as a person. It reminds me of lemons, though, and has a sunny feel.

Guest Says:


I'm still trying to make my name up about this as a first name. I think it's the lynn and popular n sound that make people choose this name. I'm as big a Beatles fan as anyone though

Guest Says:


It's better than Jagger! lol

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


This is terrible.
