Origin:Native American
Meaning:The High One
Denali is a gender-neutral name that is Native American in origin. This beautiful girl or boy name derives from the eponymous mountain, which is located in Alaska. The highest peak in North America, Denali means “the high one” or “the tall one” in Kuyokan Athabascan. The mountain has been known by many names throughout the century, most recently Mount McKinley, after the 25th president of the United States. However, in 2015 the mountain was officially renamed Denali after a long campaign by the Kuyokan Athabascan people, who were the first are the first people to inhabit the area. Denali is not only a majestic choice for baby, but honours the legacy of the indigenous people of Alaska.
