Meaning:little star
Sterling is a baby boy name of British origin. Fans of This Is Us may be aware of Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor Sterling K. Brown, but the reason for the name's popularity isn't solely from the Hollywood actor. Sterling has come a long way from the medieval era and is a variant of the Old English names Stirling and Starling, meaning "little star." This baby name also derives from the British pound and sterling silver used in necklaces, earrings, and other quality accessories. Whether baby shines throughout the day or becomes a well-known icon, baby Sterling is sure to be your number one star.
