origin: American


Origin: Hebrew

Meaning: He Will Laugh

Another very old Old Testament name that’s suddenly feeling very new, Isaac’s been steadily climbing the charts since the ’90s. While the immediate biblical association tends to be Abraham’s almost-sacrifice of his beloved son Isaac, we’ve got a better story for you: The name means “to laugh,” because Sarah and Abraham were so old when they had him that…they laughed. Story aside, it’s a beautiful name with a beautiful meaning, and should continue to move up the charts in the years to come.
