The British gender-neutral name Heath became popular for those who lived on or near a moor. Heath is a piece of land left unattended where wild shrubbery grows, and it’s also the name of a colorful plant. A famous figure who bore this name was actor Heath Ledger, known for his wide range of roles in movies like 10 Things I Hate About You, A Knight’s Tale, and The Dark Knight. So if your little one is bound to love the wilderness—growing up a free spirit among the moor flowers—or you want to pay tribute to your favorite actor, Heath would be a thoughtful choice that baby will love.
