Choosing a proud name for baby doesn’t have to be a tough nut to crack. Gretzky is a masculine name with Russian and Belarusian roots. Typically used as a last name, it translates to “Greek nut” or “walnut,” connecting baby to a delicious tree nut that’s found all over the world. Along with being found in various cuisines, the walnut has been connected with wisdom and knowledge—probably thanks to its wrinkled brain-like shape. If you’ve got a love for sports, Gretzky can also connect your little one to iconic ice hockey player Wayne Gretzky. If you imagine your little one enjoying time in the ice rink one day, Gretzky can make for a great choice.
