Meaning:Brave, bold; Halter
A boy’s name of English origin, Cable is thought to stem from the personal name Kabell, a surviving variant of the Anglo-Saxon name Ceadbeald, which is a compound of the Brittonic element cad, meaning “battle,” and Old English beald, signifying “brave” and “bold.” In English, cable was also a word used for those who made rope, particularly for ships. The word also has roots in Middle English, derived from the Late Latin capulum, meaning “halter,” which has interesting connections to the Arabic language. Your little Cable will hold fast in the face of challenges, ready to face life's storms with resilience and a heart full of courage.
