Bruce

ORIGIN: French
POPULARITY: 857
This name originated as a surname with Robert the Bruce, who eventually became the king of Scotland in the 14th century. It wasn’t until the 19th century that Bruce was used as a first name for boys. It reached its peak during the mid-20th century—with Bruce Springsteen, Lee and Willis—but its glory days are a thing of the past. Did it become too popular in the US? Maybe, though it’s still a favorite in its native Scotland.
