Meaning:Wood carver
Carver is a boy's name of British origin. As expected, this pick with Old English roots speaks to the occupation of "wood carver." But wait, that's not all! Although it's unclear why, Carver is more popular than ever. It finally hit the top 3,000 names in the US after 80+ years in hibernation. Its old-fashioned persona is due, in part, to the many talented people to share the name—both real and fictional. Mystery writer Caroline Carver has captivated adrenaline-seeking readers for over 20 years and counting. It's also earned a cloak-and-dagger persona thanks to characters in The Walking Dead, Stranger Things, and multiple James Bond films. Carver is definitely an intriguing choice worthy of a comeback!
