Meaning:Powerful ruler; Peaceful ruler
If you're looking for a name that will encourage baby to be strong yet kind, consider Rique, a masculine name of French origin that means "powerful leader." It is a variation of Rick, a diminutive of the Old Germanic name Richard. This gives the name connotations of influence, prosperity, and success. Alternatively, it could be interpreted as a diminutive of Frederick, which means "peaceful ruler." Both interpretations provide a fresh take on traditional names, striking the perfect balance between old and new.
