Origin:American
Meaning:“White skin”
This name is first and foremost a fictional name. It comes from the mind of turn-of-the-20th-century, American novelist Edgar Rice Burroughs in his work of the same name. Tarzan is a name given to the shipwrecked baby by the apes and is meant to be a word from their language that means “white skin.” However, this name could really mean anything you want it to! With the help of Phil Collins, gorgeous animation, and inventive ways to explore the animal kingdom, the movie became a sensation that outlasts any original definition. Give baby a wild and gorgeous life to look forward to with the name Tarzan.
