Anchor is a boy’s name of English origin meaning “stability.” Anchors have been used historically as symbols of hope and safety and this name derives from that word. In a nautical context, an anchor is used to keep a ship steady and prevent it from drifting in the open sea. That’s another reason why an anchor symbolizes stability and the ability to withstand challenges. Just as an anchor holds a ship steady during storms, baby Anchor will be inspired to weather all of life's challenges.
