Gender: M Meaning of Princeton: "princely town" Origin of Princeton: English Princeton's Popularity in 2016: #413

This uppity name has climbed more than 500 spots in the past six years, hitting Number 413 in 2016 -- but we still think it's a bit much. Even abroad, where the connection to the prestigious university will be weaker, any name beginning with "Prince" will sound pretentious.
