Meaning:Illustrious warrior
Herbie is a loveable boy's name of German origin, meaning "illustrious warrior." It takes after the equally charming Herbert and evolved from the Old English form Herebeorht. Although its longer forms are certified vintage, you'll probably agree that Herbie has a cozy, nickname quality that baby will love. It first entered the scene during the 1960s with the Disney film The Love Bug, revived later as Herbie: Fully Loaded, starring Lindsay Lohan. At the heart of the story is an anthropomorphic Volkswagen Beetle beloved for having a mind of its own. With a name like Herbie, baby will keep you guessing—and racing after them—as they put the pedal to the metal and steal first in your heart!
