Origin:Welsh
Popularity:857
Meaning:Greatest champion
If Kendrick Lamar is your greatest champion, then give your baby boy this fitting first name. The Grammy-winning rapper has put Kendrick, meaning "greatest champion," on the map since 2013. But Kendrick has a long and rich history, including Welsh origins from the name Cynwig and Anglo-Saxon roots in Cyneric, meaning "bold ruler." Like the generation-defining songwriter and producer, your baby Kendrick will no doubt be a winner with a bright and creative attitude. Book-ended by the letter "K," this long-standing name feels fresh and modern, too.
