Meaning:Hooked nose; Fierce, legendary beast
Celebrate baby’s fierce, mystical side with the name Gryphon. A variant spelling of Griffin, this gender-neutral name has Latin and Greek roots, translating to “hooked nose.” While this is a great way to help baby embrace their inherited features, this meaning also connects to one of the main traits of the mystical beast. This legendary beast is portrayed as having the head and wings of an eagle—including the hooked beak—and the body of a lion. With its majestic looks and stories of guarding treasures, the griffin will inspire your little one throughout their life. For a fierce name that matches baby’s otherworldly spirit, fierce demeanor, and determined mind, the name Gryphon will make for a memorable choice.
