    • Origin:

      German form of Latin Augustus

      "great, magnificent"
    • Description:

      The name August is at its highest point since the 1890s, when it ranked among the Top 100 boy names in the US. And deservedly so, given its great meaning, historic roots, and cool nicknames.
  2. Bertil
    • Carl
      • Origin:

        German variation of Charles
      • Meaning:

        "free man"

        Charles derives from the Germanic name Karl, meaning "man" or "freeman", and is a royal name in multiple European countries. A famous early bearer is Charlemagne, King of the Franks and Lombards and then Roman Emperor in the 8th-9th centuries.
    • Erik

        Spelling variation of Eric, Old Norse

        "eternal ruler"
      • Description:

        K can substitute for C at the end of a name too, as in this example of Erik as a spelling variation of Eric. Or is it the other way around?
