Strong Baby Names and Meanings

User Rating: / 16

When it comes time to bestowing upon your little one a baby name that he will carry with him through life, you may want to consider a strong baby name that will help convey themes of confidence, self-assurance and self-esteem. Inspiration for strong baby names can come from political figures, celebrities and from names with 'strong' meaning.

If you are envisioning a strong political future for your child, forget bizarre names, made up names and weird spellings. Stick to classics like Katherine, Margaret, Joe, and Matthew.

Naming a baby after a strong political or famous figure is another great way to form a strong moniker. Think about the current power players in politics and Hollywood, or ones that have stood the test of time. Nancy for Nancy Pelosi, Eleanor for Eleanor Roosevelt, John for John F. Kennedy, and Barack -- for obvious reasons! You can also turn to celebrity powerhouses for name inspiration: Brad, Tom, George, Jennifer, Sandra, and Julia should all be considered.
