Ebony is a gender-neutral name with Latin origins meaning “deep black wood.” The name Ebony derives from the ancient Egyptian name for the tree via the Greek and Latin words. Musicians may also recognize this name since the black keys on a piano were traditionally made using polished ebony wood. Was a popular choice in the United States during the 1970s, it’s time this beautiful name once again became a favored baby name.
