Meaning:From Denmark, Dane; Valley
If you've been seeking a trendy gender-neutral name with a captivating history, make room at the top of your list for Dayne. This British and German choice is the rarer cousin of Dane, meaning "from Denmark." During the 9th century, the north Germanic tribe known as the Danes settled in England, and so it evolved as a title or nickname. It may also be rooted in the Old English word denu, meaning "valley," which brought about the surname Dean. Today, Dayne is exceptionally rare as a given name and is equal parts historic and modern. Your little one will love diving into their namesake!
