Meaning:blacksmith
Previously known exclusively as a surname, Smith has function and strength. Meaning "blacksmith," this name has British origins and was initially used to let the village know your trade. Hence why we see a lot of people with surnames such as Carpenter, Manson, and so on. However, this name now stands proudly on its own and gives a distinctly unique flair as a first name. During the final decades of the 19th century, Smith was very popular before falling away in the century that followed. Isn’t it time to bring back this distinct and somewhat trendy name?
