Meaning:Of Gimm; Fire
Gimli is maybe the most famous dwarf of high fantasy thanks to JRR Tolkien and Peter Jackson. Known for his fierce love and commitment to his friends and family, there is hardly a more honorable or funnier character for baby to be inspired by. But all of the The Lord of the Rings associations aside, the name Gimli comes from the Norse name Gimm, which means "fire." Whether it's the fire burning in the blacksmithy's or the in the driven heart of your little one, Gimli is a brilliant choice.
