Eri is a gender-neutral nickname stemming from many languages across the globe. In Irish, it comes from the word eiri, meaning "arise," "ascend," and "take up arms." Some say this modern form means "my awake one." With any luck, baby won't channel their name's natural vigor while the sun's asleep! Eri is also a common Japanese name for baby girls and translates to "blessing," "picture," "pear," and "hometown." Either way, it's perfect for a cool, easy-going munchkin with main-character energy.
