Innis is a gender-neutral name of Gaelic origin used in Scottish and Irish, with the blissful meaning of “island.” As a surname, Innis was borne by ancient Scottish clans with spelling variants like Innice, Inniss, and Innes. On the west coast of Ireland, you’ll find the three Aran Islands, named Inis Mór, Inis Meáin, and Inis Oírr. In some cultures and literature, islands symbolize isolation. However, they can also represent one’s ego or soul, resilience, and transformation. Infused with strength and serenity, baby Innis can walk with confidence in who they are.
