Brimming in great boldness, Ethyl is a girl’s name of English origin, meaning “noble.” Ethyl flows serenely from its sister name Ethel, which flowers from the Old English expression æðele for “noble,” and may serve to some parents as a sweet selection for any lordly little one. Those who’ve known real nobility may tell you that it means having an honest heart, holding onto hope when tides are high, or having the upper hand. But with a name as kindly in character as Ethyl, baby might already be on the ball!
