Other Origin(s):Dutch
Meaning:Small river
Parents diving for water baby names may have found smooth sailing with a name like Creek. Inspired by the English word creek from the Old English crecca, referring to a small river or stream, Creek as a gender-neutral name holds itself high. Creek may also be an Americanized spelling of the Dutch surname Kreek, which bears the same aqueous sentiment. A river that was once narrow and rambunctious but grows calm, wise, and steadfast—Creek offers fitting symbolism for baby setting out on their exciting adventure.
