Onyx is a gender-neutral name of Greek origin, derived from the word onux, which means "claw" or "nail." Baby is already an absolute gem, and naming them after a chalcedony can be a beautiful way to let their light shimmer and shine. Just like the onyx jewel, they'll always have that edge and sparkle, and you can't really ask for more than that for your little one’s headstart!
