Hammett is a name of German origin. Borrowed from the Old German expression heim, this beautiful boy’s name means “home.” And just as heim is a word where warm and welcoming feel just right, Hammett could be the name that encourages a comforting friend in your little one. Hammett was also carried by crime author Dashiell Hammett, whose talent made him a household name in hardboiled fiction. And with any luck, Hammett will make a budding bookworm out of baby, too!
