Other Origin(s):Gaelic
Meaning:Of iron
“Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it”—especially with baby now in the mix! Ferris is a loveable and original boy’s name of Irish and Gaelic origin and means “of iron.” This surname-turned-first name is most closely associated with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, the iconic cult classic John Hughes film, which chronicles the day that Ferris Bueller and his friends fake being sick to get off school. So, whether you love the connection this name has to Ireland, enjoy that it will encourage baby to be strong as iron, or just love a good 80s flick, we think baby Ferris is going to grow up to be “a righteous dude.”
