Alben may also be a variant of the Middle English name Alvin, meaning “elf friend.” This can be a great choice if you want to celebrate your little one’s mystical, playful demeanor. For an extra touch, Alben may also come from the Latin Albanus, meaning “from Alba,” which can either refer to Alba, Italy, or Scotland. If you want to help baby connect to their familial roots or encourage their wanderlust, Alben can make for great inspiration.
