Raymond is a boy’s name that is Old French and Old German in origin, meaning "counsel protection," “protecting hands,” or "hand of advice." This boisterous name can be traced back to ancient times, with the Old French spelling Raimund or Germanic Raginmund. Travelling time and seas, the title was adopted by French and English parents and passed down with the current anglicized spelling. Moving in and out of fashion throughout the centuries, Raymond could be the perfect way to honor baby’s past, or a loved one that came before him. As the 1990s sitcom says, “Everybody loves Raymond,” and this baby boy will be no exception.
