The name Clyde has origins in Scotland and for good reason. The River Clyde flows through Glasgow and goes through the blood of all of those with Scottish heritage, too. But as well as tying in your highlander blood, this name means "warm" and "friendly" and can keep baby feeling warm and cozy all day long. With the name most notably connected to the duo Bonnie and Clyde, however, don’t be surprised if this little boy gets up to some mischief!
