Meaning:From Manchester
Manchester, as a boy's name, carries a rich history from the Industrial Revolution to sporting triumphs at Old Trafford. With English and Latin roots, your child can honor a heritage or proudly declare their connection to the city "from Manchester." In Latin, the name stems from Mancunium, the former Roman fort in Manchester, and the Latinized Mamucium, thought to originate from an original Brittonic name, possibly related to a "breast-like hill" or a local river goddess. Whether you opt for red or blue, with The Smiths, Oasis, and The Stone Roses tunes in the background, your little Manchester will be your biggest fan in life.
