Often seen as a surname, Boyd is indeed a first name in its own right. With Scottish and Irish origins, Boyd means “yellow” or “blond.” This definition makes more sense when you see the word Boyd in Gaelic, which is bod, meaning the same thing. Boyd is a bold and trendy one-syllable name ideal if you’re looking to pay homage to your Gaelic roots. All the more fitting if your little one has a great head of blond hair!
