Just think of Einstein and Schweitzer. Your baby boy is in outstanding company if you choose the name Albert. It comes as no surprise that this name is of German origin and means “noble,” “bright,” and “famous.” Such a definition has never been so fitting for one name! Albert was once a popular name during the late 19th and early 20th century in England, possibly down to Queen Victoria’s husband Prince Albert. It was around this time that the cute nickname of Bertie was then born from the name. Though it may not be as popular these days, surely its time will come again. Why not be ahead of the trend?
