Is your bouncing baby boy destined to be a warrior? Then consider Kane, which not only refers to the bad boy Cain in the Bible, but also means “little battler.” Then there’s also the classic film Citizen Kane, starring Orson Welles, which is thought by many to be one of the greatest American movies ever made. An added bonus (or deterrent): the name is still considered fairly unique, so your Kane may be the only one in his class.
