Meaning:Made of silk
Silken is a feminine name of Middle English origin. Also spelled selken, it translates to “made of silk,” connecting baby to a rich fabric known for its smooth, soft texture. While this name is far from being a common one, one popular person who carries it is Canadian Olympic rower Silken Laumann. With one silver and two bronze medals under her belt, she makes for long-standing inspiration. For a name rowing with both encouragement and soft gentleness, Silken makes for a memorable choice.
