No matter how stubborn you are, you have to admit that the name Terrell is perfect for your little one! This gender-neutral name has French origins and derives from the Anglo-Norman nickname used to describe a stubborn person. Literally meaning “puller” or “to pull,” the name might conjure up images of a horse pulling against reins. But, the benefit of this name is that it will teach baby when to stand their ground! Terrell has a second possible meaning: “following Thor,” which comes from Old German roots and derives from the moniker Thorald. Famous namesakes include American football player Terrell Owens.
