Bowie is a gender-neutral name of Scottish origin, meaning “yellow-haired” or “blond.” It is said to be derived from the Gaelic nickname buidhe, which means “yellow” or “fair-haired.” This Scottish name was most notably adopted by influential singer-songwriter David Bowie, who fittingly also had blonde hair making Bowie the perfect moniker for baby born with a crown of golden locks.
