Masculine and of German origin, Hal means “home leader,” perfect for your little natural-born leader. Stemming from the popular medieval name Henry, Shakespeare made Hal quite famous as he affectionately referred to Prince Henry as Prince Hal in his play Henry IV, Part 1. In this play, Prince Hal is portrayed as a fun-loving boy, making Hal a fitting choice for your little bundle of joy. In the past, Hal was most commonly used as a doting nickname for other names such as Harold and Harry, but now it stands strong as its own charming given name.
