Dante

lasting, enduring
ORIGIN: Spanish
POPULARITY: 649
Dante might make you think of an Italian boy playing bocce in the park or the Italian poet Dante Alighieri, who wrote the famous “The Divine Comedy” in 1472. Dante comes from the Italian name Durante, which means “lasting, enduring.” It became a baby name given to American boys in 1910 and has been popular ever since. It had enough Italian flavor for reality TV chef Tom Colicchio to give to his son, as well as the son of Jordan Knight of “New Kids on the Block.”
