Errol is a boy’s name of Latin, British, and Irish origin. As this name has traveled far and wide, it's no coincidence Errol means “wanderer” in Latin. Also a variant of the British name Earl, this baby name doesn’t give up with a meaning like “chieftain,” “nobleman,” and “warrior.” Thanks to his name, baby Errol will know how to stand his ground and fight for what’s right, a humble hero in all he does. In Irish, Earl translates to “pledge,” making an honorable person out of baby. Just like its derivative name Earl, Errol was a popular title in the early 1900s, and could see the glamour and wisdom of the time carried through to the next generation.
