meaning:From the Glen
origin: American


Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: Man, Of the Earth

About as original (in terms of going way back in history, not uniqueness) as names get, Adam is -- obviously -- the first name of the first name, if you ascribe to biblical theory. Not surprisingly, it means “to make” or “to earth.” Unlike many other early biblical names, though, this one has a relatively modern sound. It peaked in the ’80s at an average ranking of 22, and has been slipping down the charts since then. Though it’s still a solid choice, it’s definitely not the freshest name (biblical or otherwise) you could settle on.

Current U.S. popularity rank: 2010: 72
