US Popularity:1899
Meaning:son of the holy one
Irish in origin, Cullen is a masculine name whose allure runs deeper than surface level. Considered by many to mean "handsome," Cullen is better linked to the Ancient Gaelic name Cuileannain which means "son of the holy one." In recent years, Cullen's reputation as the standard of flawless good looks has only intensified thanks to its use as Edward's family name in the Twilight series. However, those immune to the glittering vampire clan will find a more everlasting esteemed status in Cullen's unfiltered Gaelic roots.
