Berk is a boy's name of Turkish origin. Coming from the Turkic element bérk individually or in combination with kan, Berk means “solid,” “firm,” “strong,” or “strong blood.” Berk is also a last name with Germanic and Anglo-Saxon origins, signifying “dweller by the birch tree or wood.” Birch trees are a symbol of regrowth and new beginnings, making the name ideal for the newest addition to your family. They held an important place in Celtic mythology and were the first tree in Ogham, the Celtic tree alphabet. Its roots may have inspired the name of the island in How to Train Your Dragon—the Isle of Berk.
