Hamnet is a masculine name of Old German and French origin, meaning "village" or "home." Taking after hamlet and hamel, it speaks to the beauty of finding solace in the place we call home. Hamnet is also a stone's throw from Hamlet, as in Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Among the play's many lessons, the line "to thine own self be true" may inspire your little one to practice self-love and live their life authentically. Wherever their journeys take them, all roads will always lead back to you!
