“Strong” and “firm” Ethan is a mega-popular name for boys right now. While the name appears in the Bible eight times, more current namesakes range from an American revolutionary (Allen), to a 90s heartthrob (Hawke), to a line of luxury furniture (Allen again). It’s also a great pick if you want a name that doesn’t come with cutesy nicknames.
