If you’re hoping to have a larger-than-life kid, consider Grant. It’s a surname with Scottish origins and it means “large.” Maybe the “large” refers to his bank account, his trust fund from his great-aunt Gertrude, his sizable intellect, or his giant vintage vinyl collection.
Either way, this name might give him the cosmic boost he needs. In the U.S., Grant has spent most of the time since the 1880s hovering between the 200s and 300s. It made a leap up into the 100s in the 1980s and it’s stayed there since then. Grant is a great one-syllable choice if you have longer last names or are looking for nickname-proof names.
