Names That Mean Strong

by Pamela Redmond

Baby names that mean strong may help arm your boy or girl for whatever lies ahead. Strength-related name meanings have become more popular to parents in recent years, as they prepare their children for challenging times. Names for strong babies come from a variety of different cultures and encompass many different styles, from succinct, no-nonsense names like Drew and Zeke to long and romantic names like Gabriella and Valentino.

Along with Gabriella and Zeke, other names that mean strong in the US Top 1000 include Anders, Audrey, Bridget, Ethan, Gabriel, Griffin, Valentina, and Valerie. Other strong names worth considering include Evander, Trudy, Valencia, and Zale.
