The hidden meaning behind popular baby names
A lot goes into picking a baby name. Do you want to go with an old family favorite, or something new? A name that has personal meaning, or just something that sounds pretty? Well, one thing you might want to consider is the actual meaning of the name.
Most popular names have Greek, Latin, or Hebrew roots, so you can nail down a pretty clear definition — that might greatly factor into your choices. A name like Claudia sounds nice enough, but it actually means "lame." Not "lame" as in "dude, you're so lame," but lame as in "unable to walk." That makes the name sounds a little less nice.
If you're torn between options, the hidden meaning behind some of the most popular names might make your decision a whole lot easier.
