Best Boys' Baby Names Of 2010
This is a list of the most popular boys' baby names of 2010. People could name there babies after famous movie stars or perhaps favorite movies.
Etymologically, the name is derived from the Greek Alexandros, meaning "defending men" or "protector of men", a compound of the verb alexo, "to ward off, to avert, to defend" and the noun andros, genitive of aner, "man". It is an example of the widespread motif of Greek (or Indo-European more generally) names expressing "battle-prowess", in this case the ability to withstand or push back an enemy battle line.
The name Jack originates from the Middle English given name Jankin, with variants including Jakken and Jakke, formed by the addition of the diminutive suffix "-kin" (similar to the German "-chen") to the name Jan, itself a contracted version of the French name Jehan (like John formed by shortening from the Latin form Johannes). Jankin became Jakken (or Jackin), and eventually Jack.
Aidan is a masculine given name. It is an Anglicised form of the Irish given name Aodhan and the Scottish Gaelic given name Aodhan. The name is derived from the name Aodhan, which is a pet form of Aodh. The personal name Aodh means "fire" and was the name of a Celtic sun god.
Logan is a given name derived from a Scottish place name meaning "Small, round hill" in Scottish Gaelic.
Ryan is given name in English. It originates from the surname Ryan, which is an Anglicised form of the Irish O Riain.
Jacob is derived from Late Latin Iacobus, from Greek Iakobos, from Hebrew Ya'aqov, the name of the Hebrew patriarch, Jacob son of Isaac. In a Christian context, the name Jacob - as James in English - is also associated with the apostles James, son of Zebedee who was the object of great veneration in the European Middle Ages, notably at Santiago de Compostela; James the Just, brother of Jesus, who led the original Christian community in Jerusalem; and James, son of Alphaeus.
Jackson is a common surname of English and Scottish origin. It literally means "son of Jack".
Ethan is a male given name of Hebrew origin that means strong, firm, steadfast and safe. It may also be spelled Eitan or Eytan.
The name is possibly derived from the biblical variant "Jadon." Jadon the Meronothite appears in Nehemiah 3:7. However, variant spellings usually become popular in the wake of the popularity of an orthodox version, and in this case the converse is true - Jadon became popular only in the wake of the popularity of Jayden, suggesting that it is not the source.
Noah is a given name and surname, derived from the Biblical figure meaning "Rest" in Hebrew.
