While “left” may mean “the opposite of right,” you can't go wrong with this name Lefty. This masculine name is an American creation, serving as a nickname for someone who’s left-handed. If you’re a proud baseball fan, you may be happy to know that many Major League pitchers carried Lefty as a nickname. This can be a great way to make baby feel right at home on the baseball diamond. Since left-handers are rarer than right-handers, Lefty can also encourage your little one to go against the grain and follow their own direction in life. Whether baby is strengthening their throwing arm or taking the path less taken, they are sure to knock it out of the park with the name Lefty.
