US Popularity:602
Other Origin(s):Scottish
Meaning:Red; Reed clearing
Given the choice of Reed or Reid, more American parents seem to be favoring the latter in recent years. Could it be the subtle sophistication that a double-E just doesn’t provide? Reid certainly looks more appealing on paper and easily rolls off the tongue. While this name is primarily masculine, its graceful chime makes it a sweet choice for girls, too. Reid Scott of Veep has pledged allegiance to this simple name, which comes from a Scottish and English surname derived from a nickname. Meaning "red" or "reed clearing," Reid suits a red-haired tot with a wild side.
