Major

ORIGIN: Latin
POPULARITY: 675
What’s interesting about this baby name is that before it was a military rank, Major was a Germanic surname, Malger. But that’s a minor point to parents who like the authoritativeness of the name, which joins other title names like Duke, King and Prince. It should also be saluted for its other definitions: a student’s focus in college, a synonym of “important” and a musical term defining certain movements or keys.
