A boy’s name of Latin origin, Prosper means “fortunate” or “successful” and encourages baby to flourish and thrive. Fifth-century Christian writer Saint Prosper of Aquitaine became associated with the name in medieval times. Strengthening this literary connection is Prospero, the main character in William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest, who has an Italian version of the name. A symbol of riches, this name gives baby lots to aspire to.
