Adelard is a boy’s name of Old German and Old English origin. Meaning “noble strength,” it’s considered to be an alternate form of Adalhard and Allard. But if this name is at all known, it’s all thanks to Adelard of Bath, the 12th century English natural philosopher, whose original works and translations changed the landscape of Western Europe, arguably since Aristotle. To begin with, he translated several scientific works of astrology, astronomy, philosophy, alchemy, and mathematics from Arabic to Latin. He was also one of the first to introduce the Arabic numeral system and algebra. He was a man ahead of his time, displaying original thought, and questioning the shape of the Earth among other things. Naming your little one after one of the greatest minds is to inspire a love of learning, discovery, and set aflame curiosity and innovation. And by setting off this domino, you might help baby change the world.
