Meaning:Earth; Man
Addams is a boy's name of Hebrew origin grounded in nature and the pioneering figure. Rooted in the Hebrew adama, meaning "earth," Addams is a unique variation of the long-established Adam. It also means “man,” potentially derived from the Hebrew word adam, meaning “to be red” and referring to the dust of the earth or the pigment of human skin. This name is perhaps most synonymous with the biblical first man—its meaning playfully reflecting Adam's creation from the earth's dusted ground. And while Addams may undoubtedly spark images of the charismatic supernatural family, its genesis suggests a far more down-to-earth soul. Whether baby is a dreamer or an innovator, Addams embodies it all, allowing them to pave their own path in whatever way feels natural.
