Grant is a boy-given name of English, French, and Scottish origins, meaning “tall” and “big.” The name originated as a surname, deriving from the French term graund, which shares the same towering meaning. Grant was used as a nickname for those of remarkable size in the past, but now sports a sound feel for level headed baby. Notable name bearers include Hugh and Carey Grant, adding a debonair appeal to the masculine name. Solid and sturdy, Grant is a tip-top choice for baby boy.
