Bronte is a gender neutral name of mixed origin. The Bronte sisters were English, but this word also exists in Greek and Gaelic dialects. Taking turns between "thunder" and "bestower" respectively, this name has facets for days. But if your love of classic literature runs in the marrow of your bones and you're not quite sure if Charlotte, Emily, or Anne are the best choices for baby, consider shaking it up! A surname-turned-forename is a badass approach to paying homage to your favorite figures through history and gives baby something to lean on, too.
