Meaning “strength” and “power,” Escalus is a masculine name borrowed into Latin from Greek, stemming from Αἰσχύλος (Aiskhúlos). It’s ideal for caregivers who appreciate names with literary roots. Fans of the Shakespeare tragedy Romeo and Juliet will be familiar with the name thanks to one of the play’s central characters, Prince Escalus. In the play, Escalus plays the role of peacemaker, striving to bring an end to the feud between the Montagues and Capulets. Those who know the ending of the play will know that he is ultimately unsuccessful, but indeed, his unifying vision is something to be admired. When presented with conflict, you can be sure that baby Escalus will move heaven and earth in pursuit of what they believe to be right!
