Pronounced KOR-bin, the name is derived from an English surname that comes from “corbeau,” which means "raven" or "crow"; it’s also a reference to a person with dark hair. (If your baby is born with a head of brown or black locks, this name would be a natural fit!) Corbin became popular in 1987, when "L.A. Law" was the hot new show with hot star Corbin Bernsen. Parents who rocked out to “High School Musical” in their youth might associate the name with Corbin Bleu, the Disney show’s popular star.
