Other Origin(s):French, Irish, Scottish
Meaning:Bold, brave
Calling all bookworms, film buffs, and fashionistas! There's one name to tick all your boxes—the ever-so-cool Hardy. This boy's name is rooted in Old German, French, Scottish, and Irish and means "bold" or "brave." While it's traditionally a surname, Hardy's been steadily rising in popularity as a given name, much like Brady, Cooper, and Lennon. It's famously shared with English novelist Thomas Hardy, British fashion designer Hardy Amies, and brothers Frank and Joe in the children's book series, The Hardy Boys. More recently, though, actor Tom Hardy has taken the cake in terms of notability. A star in VenomPeaky Blinders, and the epic Mad Max, Hardy's got pride, grit, and charm to spare.
