Patriotic inspired baby names for girls and boys
If you want to keep things British, take a look at our patriotic inspired baby names
Sometimes there’s a lot to be said for keeping things traditional and in recent years many strong, staunch British names have made a comeback.
There’s been a revived interest in the royals since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge started a family. George and Charlotte were popular choices last year, as were other ‘royalist’ examples like William (Germanic origin but patriotic because of Shakespeare and the Prince) Henry (mighty), Harry, Edward (guardian/protector), and Charles (Charlie). George, derived from Greece, was taken by five British kings so has become quintessentially patriotic
Patriotic names don’t mean they have to be dull - how about Hamilton - which means ‘proud estate’ in the English tradition or Graham, which means ‘grand home’. Alfie (from Alfred, meaning ‘wise counsellor) and Tristan - a Welsh name once a little boarding school-esque- also have a nice patriotic ring.
Victoria, Elizabeth and Charlotte - and all the variations of them - remain popular and there’s various forms of the word Britain from which you can derive a patriotic name - Brittany, Britannia, Britney or Brittnee to name a few.
