Meaning:Ruler
Landry is a boy’s name of French origin. Meaning “ruler,” it should come as no surprise that this little one’s big personality will quickly take center stage in your home. Deeply rooted in French history, the title was first recorded in the early fifth century, attributed to Saint Landry of Seés. Following this influential figure, a seventh-century saint of the same name built one of the first major Parisien hospitals during a time of great need. The final saint of this name was around in the 11th century, and acted as the parish priest of two French villages. Owing to such a strong titular background, little Landry can certainly be inspired to lead by example, helping and guiding those around him by example.
