Autry is a gender-neutral name of French origin. With its beautiful meaning “noble strength,” is it any wonder that everyone wants a slice? Though there are quite a few NFL players sporting this name, a stand-out is definitely Gene Autry. Nicknamed ‘the Singing Cowboy,’ he gained fame during the 1930s and 40s, portraying righteous heroes on screen. He was also one of the pioneering figures in the history of country music, and is the only person to be awarded stars in all five categories—film, television, music, radio, and live performance—of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. While it’s not possible to have a heart-to-heart with him anymore, being his namesake is one of the surer ways for some of that brilliance to rub off on your little one. And then, watch them go from strength to strength till the world is at their feet, clamouring for more!
