Stop pottering around and pick a baby name, already! We are only kidding, but we do think that this name might be a perfect choice. Potter is a positively magical boy’s name, which has English origins. Meaning “maker of pots,” Potter has been used as both a surname and a given name, and derives from the occupation name for those who would craft containment vessels from clay. Nowadays, the name has connotations with the titular character of the Harry Potter franchise. But you can’t forget author Beatrix Potter, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, or even Potter County in Texas.
