Meaning:Of Adrian; From Hadria
Adriaan is poised to bring new energy to the baby name universe, courtesy of its double-A spelling. A rare form of Latin Adrian, this masculine pick means "from Hadria," after a town in Northern Italy. Adrian and its many forms cropped up between the twelfth and first centuries BCE and has never fallen out of favor. It's shared with several early popes, actors Grenier and Brody, and football running back Adrian Peterson. With Adriaan, your little one can propel this classic choice born in a tiny Italian town into the future!
