Delmer is an English boy’s name of Old French and Spanish origins. Commonly associated with the Catalan phrase del Mar‎, Delmer means “of the sea.” This definition may bring to mind images of a baby Delmer as a sailor or merman. This romantic imagery also speaks to the allure that the sea has long held over humanity, perhaps because all people start out as aquatic animals in utero. On the other hand, Delmer is likely derived from the English name Delmar and the French phrase la mare, meaning “from the pond.” With a name like Delmer, baby will leave behind waves of love, joy, and mystery.
