Telford is a masculine moniker most widely used throughout England and Scotland. Historically, it would’ve been taken from Telfer, a name based on an old but bold byname for a “strong man” or a “ferocious warrior.” Look to its French and Latin roots, and you’ll find its additional definitions of “iron” and “to cut” particularly inspiring for your not-so-tiny tot. Scottish civil engineer Thomas Telford is best known for revolutionizing the transportation industry between the 18th and 19th centuries. The town of Telford in Shropshire, England, is said to be named after him.
