Meaning:Of the canon; Home
Buchanan is a parish in Stirling, Scotland, and that’s exactly where this boy’s name has come from. Just like the locale, the name carries a rich history. While it’s original meaning, “of the canon,” alludes to a person who hails from the area, it’s adapted meaning of “home” makes this a fitting name for a little one being welcomed into yours. Outside of the Scottish culture, Buchanan has some seriously opulent undertones. Sharing the surname of leading lady Daisy in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, baby Buchanan won’t have to lead as lavish a lifestyle to prove his worth.
