Carroll is a gender-neutral, surname-turned-first name with Irish roots. This vintage pick spent nearly a millennium on the top 1,000 list in the US before dropping off into obscurity. It's rooted in the Irish surnames Ó Cearbhaill and Cearbhall and means "fierce in battle." Even if said battle is bedtime, you can expect baby Carroll to put up an adorable fuss. Strong-minded and stubborn, they'll always keep you on your toes! This name is also a popular choice for parents who want to inspire a love of reading and storytelling. Just like Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland, they'll flex their creative muscles every chance they get.
