Meaning:Foreign; Welshman
Welch is a masculine name with Welsh and Old English roots. While this may remind you of Welch’s, a food company with lots of grape products, its roots and vines go deeper than you may think. Coming from the Old English word welisċ, it can translate to “foreign,” or “Welshman.” This can be a great choice if your little one has Welsh connections in their family tree, or if you want to inspire them to learn more about what’s “foreign” to them. For a name that inspires your little one to learn more about places and cultures outside of their own, Welch can make for grape encouragement.
