If Superman pops into your head when you hear the name Clark, that may be a sign you should consider it for your own little superhero. Clark has been around since at least the 17th century, long before Superman flew in to save the day. With Irish origins, this name exudes strength and stability and means “cleric” and “clerk.” Clark was a popular name during the 1930s and 40s which is possibly done to movie star, Clark Gable. To this day, Clark is a charming name for any child.
