Hilarie is a gender-neutral name of Latin origin. It’s a variant of the Latin name Hilaria, which derives from the word hilaris, meaning “cheerful” or “happy.” A fitting name for a little one who always has a smile on their face! Other variants of the name include Hilary and Hillary, with famous bearers including Hilary Swank, Hilary Duff, and Hillary Clinton. Though today mostly used for girls, Hilary was used as a male name before the 19th century, an example being fourth-century saint Hilary of Poitiers. Though Hilarie is a less common spelling, it was brought into the limelight by actress Hilarie Burton, best known for playing Peyton in One Tree Hill.
