Meaning:High cliff, projecting height; Verdant hill
Erskine is a masculine name of Scottish origin, meaning “high cliff” or “verdant hill,” and a champion over any choice if a character of high caliber is what you hope for baby. This beautiful boy’s name, one-of-a-kind in sound, spelling, and significance, comes from the name of a little town near Glasgow whose mighty title may have meanings of “projecting height” in Irish. If you love literature, you might want to keep this name in your good books. Author Erskine Childers was most widely recognized before World War I when his work Riddle of the Sands took spy fiction by storm. Erskine Childers may not be here to bring out the bookworm in baby, but naming your little one after him might breathe his legacy back to life.
