Blonde Baby Names, from Aurelia to Xanthe

January 23, 2015 Linda Rosenkrantz

If there’s a strong strain of fair hair in your family, you may be thinking about choosing a name that would have meaning for a prospective blondie. Some of these might have originated via one early bearer—see Boyd—just as Rufus originated as a nickname for red-haired King William. But the names on this list? They’re all golden.


A name that is pure gold, as it means ‘the golden one’, the shimmering Aurelia is an ancient appellation going back to the Roman Empire—it belonged to the mother of Julius Caesar. It is beginning to shine again in the modern world—it’s currently at Number 833 in the US, and a much higher #39 on Nameberry. Aurelius is the male form.
