Bud is a masculine name with Scottish, English, and American roots. Translating to “brother” and “friend,” this name is a lovely reminder for baby to hold their friends and family close. It may also come from the Scottish word “bhodaich,” which translates to “old man” and is a great choice to inspire your little one’s old soul. If you want baby to connect more to nature, Bud can also refer to a sprouting plant or bloom—think rosebud. With the short, sweet spelling and plenty of meaning, the name Bud makes for a wonderful choice.
