Other Origin(s):French, Scottish
Vintage names are back, baby! As everyone flocks to the most popular retro picks—like Henry, Jasper, and August—you'll undoubtedly be enamored with this more subtle choice. Stuart is of British, Scottish, and French origin and comes from the surname Stewart. As you may have guessed, it means "steward," referring to an administrative official of an estate. Back in the 16th century, the former Queen of Scotland, Mary Stuart, brought the name from France, and it quickly dominated the surname scene. You'll probably be familiar with its common pet names, Stu, Stew, and Stewie. Plus, baby will feel super blessed reading the children's book Stuart Little by E. B. White. They may be small, but their hopes, dreams, and courage can only be described as mighty!
