The name Adam has been around forever—and that’s not an exaggeration. Biblically, Adam was the first human being created by God. It was a very popular name to give firstborns in the Middle Ages. While the name may have fallen out of vogue recently, giving way to more popular A names like Aiden, Adam will always remain a classic.
