ORIGIN: Latin
POPULARITY: 88
Hadria was a town in northern Italy that gave its name to the Adriatic Sea. The name Adrian means "a man from Hadria." The name Adrian was a saint's name taken by several early popes, including the only English pope, Adrian IV, and the only Dutch pope, Adrian VI. A popular masculine name in the 20th and 21st centuries, it has an androgynous quality that may make it sound too similar to the female Adrienne for some parents’ tastes. Actors Adrian Grenier and Adrien Brody show two ways to spell the name.
