Baby #2 List

Need to name Xander Liam's little brother.
  1. Emmet
    • Origin:

      English; Hebrew
    • Meaning:

      "universal; truth"
    • Description:

      Honest and sincere, laid-back and creative, Emmet is a male cognate of the megapopular Emma and Emily, but the more common spelling is Emmett. Emmet dropped off the US Top 1000 in 1934 and reentered the list in 2014; Emmett, on the other hand, has never been off the charts.
  2. Kade
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Cade
    • Description:

      Kade is a prime example of the new trend for substituting K's at the beginning of traditionally C-starting names.
  3. Kaden
    • Origin:

      Spelling variation of Kayden, modern invented name
    • Meaning:

      "round or barrel"
    • Description:

      A popular member of the -ayden family, Kaden ranks alongside Kaiden, Kayden, Kasen, Kade, Caiden, Cade, and Caden in the US Top 1000. A 90s invention that took off in the 2000s, Kaden is concise and modern, with its popular K initial.
  4. Koen
    • Origin:

      Dutch diminutive of Coenraad
    • Meaning:

      "bold advisor"
    • Description:

      A short form popular in the Netherlands, though in the U.S. Koen and Coen are easily confused with Cohen, the Jewish surname meaning "priest" which has recently gained currency as a first name. The Dutch pronunciation is more like "coon."
  5. Koden
    • Odin
      • Origin:

        Variation of Óðinn, Old Norse
      • Meaning:

        "god of frenzy; poetic fury"
      • Description:

        Odin is the name of the supreme Norse god of art, culture, wisdom, and law — who was handsome, charming, and eloquent into the bargain. The name projects a good measure of strength and power and has excellent assimilation potential.
    • Omari
      • Origin:

        Swahili, Arabic
      • Meaning:

        "populous, flourishing"
      • Description:

        This name, like Omar and Amari, has been in the US Top 1000 for many years. After taking a downturn in 2008, it's now again on the upswing. Actor Omari Hardwick keeps it in the public eye.
    • Omarion
      • Origin:

        Elaboration of Omari
      • Description:

        Another increasingly popular member of the Omar family, this one perhaps influenced by hip-hopper Omarion Granberrg (born Omari) of the group B2K.
    • Zane
      • Origin:

        Possible variation of John
      • Meaning:

        "God is gracious"
      • Description:

        Western novelist Zane (born Pearl!) Grey made this name famous. Now, it's in tune with the style of our times, retaining that appealing cowboy image.
