Other Origin(s):Celtic
Meaning:From the town of Nairn; Penetrating one
Give baby a name that reminds them of their heritage, like Nairn. This gender-neutral moniker hails from the town of Nairn, east of Inverness, in Scotland. The etymology of Nairn, however, is not completely certain. Some sources suggest Nairn, taken from the River Nairn, has Celtic origins, possibly meaning “penetrating one.” Honor baby’s roots and perhaps inspire them to make a trip to the Highlands when they’re older by naming them Nairn.
