Meaning:Bald, little bald one
Calvin is a boy's name of French and Latin origin ideal for those emboldened with confidence. Stemming from the French word chauve, Calvin embraces the meaning of "bald," or "little bald one," making it particularly suitable for delicate newborns. Yet Calvin possesses much more than surface-level features. A bare crown can signal a spiritual rebirth or a shedding of the old for the welcoming of the new. It's a fitting homage to the famed reformer and humanist lawyer John Calvin, known for his controversial break from the Catholic Church. So if you have a budding non-conformist on your hands or an openness to defying the status-quo, Calvin may be the right way to go.
