Other Origin(s):Irish, Scottish
Meaning:Hawkin's son; Hawk; Horseman; Brown; Lord
As animal-inspired names go, you can't get more majestic than Hawkins. This gender-neutral pick has many origins, from Middle English to Irish and Scottish. The most common explanation lies in the forename Hawkin and the suffix kin, making it "Hawkin's son." In Old English, Hauekinge was a given name rooted in heafoc, meaning "hawk," after the placename Hawkinge in Kent, England. Interestingly, Hawkins also translates to "horseman," "brown," or "lord." Whichever speaks to baby's heritage, you'll find this name brings out their stoic and sharp-eyed nature. They’ll take after Marvel's bow-and-arrow-wielding superhero, Hawkeye, and be a total badass!
