Remington Origin and Meaning

The name Remington is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "place on a riverbank".
Between 1980s-era television private eye Remington Steele and Remington Arms, this name might seem all-boy. But in 2014, Remington entered the US girls' Top 1000, and it's been rising since.

Why? Maybe because Remington easily shortens to Remy, an unrelated French saint's name - again, originally used for boys, but appealing for girls today. Or maybe it's just our never-ending search for surname names for our sons and daughters.
