Opie is a gender-neutral name with English and Norse roots, serving as a short, sweet version of multiple classic names. One possibility is that it comes from the Middle English names Osbert, meaning “bright god,” and Osbern, meaning “bear god.” If you want to celebrate baby’s mythical side—along with their bright future and fierce personality—Opie can do the job. This moniker may also come from the English name Opal, connecting baby to an iridescent gemstone that’s vibrant and colorful like baby’s spirit.
