Meaning:Noble; Eager; Ready for battle
Alonso is a popular Spanish boy’s name that means “noble,” “eager,” and “ready for battle.” While you probably hope baby Alonso never sees battle, you can be proud knowing their name will inspire them to fight for their convictions. Interestingly, the etymology of the name reflects how conquest and war have shaped the world. It is a diminutive of Alfonso, which derives from the Germanic Adalfuns. Spain was introduced to Germanic names when the Visigoths conquered it in the 5th century, after which Alonso became common as a given name and a last name. This can serve as a lesson to baby that while they may stay ready for battle, there are other, more peaceful ways for cultures to meld, learn from one another, and share their traditions.
