Meaning:Strong, fortified
Meaning “strong” and “fortified,” Fortinbras is a distinctive masculine name with literary credentials.

His final lines bring a hopeful conclusion to the dramatic events of the play, and we are sure that your little Fortinbras will brighten up your world with the same spirit of optimism.
