If Kendrick Lamar is your greatest champion, then give your baby boy his first name. The Grammy-winning rapper made his name popular around 2013, a year after his debut album was released. But Kendrick goes way back as a surname. Besides Welsh, the name’s origins could be Old English and Gaelic. It has a regal attitude and a bit of a British air, and since it’s not super-popular, it feels fresh and modern.
