To bring out baby's kind and honorable side, show some love to the vintage pick, Elman. This boy's name can be traced back to the Middle ages and combines the German words edel and mann. Put them together, and you've got the aristocratic meaning of "noble man." Elman also shares roots with Edelman and may also come from the Turkish name Eilman, meaning "banner of the tribe" or "symbol of the people." Either way, your little darling will have a poised and proper quality that makes them a natural-born leader.
