Drink to baby's arrival with the fun and celebratory name Gin! This gender-neutral choice boasts a rich and multifaceted origin story, especially fitting for a multicultural child. Familiar to many as a refreshing beverage enjoyed with tonic water and citrus fruit, Gin also has Chinese roots as a variant of Jin, famously shared by a member of the renowned South Korean boyband, BTS. In Chinese, Gin has several meanings depending on the character, including "gold," "metal," and "money" from 金, and "tapestry" or "embroidered" from 锦. Next to gold, Gin appears in Japanese as "silver," letting your little champ collect all the prizes from a young age. Beyond its Southeast Asian origins, Gin is also known as a distilled alcohol, derived from the Dutch genever, meaning "juniper," due to its berry-enhanced flavor. Whether inspired by rare metals, luxurious tapestries, or a crisp glass of liquor, Gin is a name that calls to the finer elements of life.
