Ursinus is a boy’s name of Latin origin. While it means “bear,” Ursinus is also the name of a private liberal arts college in Pennsylvania that takes after a 16th-century reformer, teacher, and thinker, Zacharias Ursinus. The college believes his egalitarian and unpretentious spirit still lives on in campus today. Bears, themselves, are no strangers to this idea. Many cultures all over the world associate bears as spiritual guides. So naming baby Ursinus is an endearing way to ensure they always have a friend in need.
