Originating in Britain, Drake means “dragon”—could a little boy ask for a cooler name? Probably not, and its association with rapper Drake (real name: Aubrey Drake Graham) doesn’t hurt either. This easy-to-pronounce, straightforward baby name has been around forever: In the seventh century, it was a nickname for someone who was tough and fearsome. As a surname, it gained cred from Francis Drake, a daring English explorer in the 16th century. With a name rooted in adventure, baby Drake will be ready to take the world by storm.
