Meaning:One who lives near a hill or stream, one who lives on a hide of land
Despite having undeniable vintage charm, Hyde has only just begun its journey as a given name. It cropped up in 2004 among baby boys and quickly gained momentum alongside Henry, Theodore, and Liam. Hyde is rooted in the Old English word hīd, as in a hide of land. It was traditionally a surname for "one who lives near a hill or stream" or "one who lives on a hide of land." This translation may seem vague, but perhaps it will bring out baby's free-spirited, nature-loving side! They'll probably feel most at home with the sun on their face and soil beneath their feet. Hyde may also bring to mind the glorious London park or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of the classic gothic novella by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson.
