Names I love that clash with our lastname

  1. Colm

      Irish variation of Latin Columba
    • Meaning:

      "dove"

      Colm is a popular Irish name for boys that could immigrate, especially with its peaceful meaning.

  2. Corbin
    • Origin:

      English and French surname
    • Meaning:

      "crow, raven"
    • Description:

      Corbin, the name of the castle where the Holy Grail was said to be hidden, came to the fore in the 1980s via actor Corbin Bernsen when he was the high profile star of LA Law, but its use is only now escalating as part of the mania for two-syllable names starting with c or k, as well as from the more youthful image of Corbin Bleu, the attractive actor-model-dancer-singer who was one of the stars of the Disney hit High School Musical.
  3. Clarkson
    • Edison
      • Origin:

        English
      • Meaning:

        "son of Edith or Adam"

        This rhythmic last-name-first-name projects the creativity and inventiveness of Thomas Edison. It's an English surname deriving from either Adam or Eda, a medieval diminutive of Edith.
    • Ethan

        Hebrew
      • Meaning:

        "strong, firm"
      • Description:

        Ethan is a name that succeeds in being at once classic and fashionable, serious and cheery, strong and sensitive. Given a big boost via the name of the Tom Cruise character in the Mission Impossible film series, Ethan has fallen from its peak at Number 2 in 2009 and 2010, but is still popular in the US along with several other countries.
