ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 285
You don’t have to be royalty to call your son King. It’s a simple, yet commanding name that conveys power and majesty—even if Buckingham Palace isn’t your home address. As chess aficionados know, this Old English word (which originated from “cyning,” or tribal leader) is the most important piece in the game, with the outcome of the match lying on his regal shoulders. While plenty of famous folks have this surname—like civil rights leader Martin Luther King and model/actress Jaime King—the world is waiting for someone extraordinary to rule the first-name category one day. Your son, perhaps?
