Meaning:From the wealthy estate
A prim and proper name for a being as prestigious as baby, Wellington is a masculine title with Old English origins. Meaning “from the wealthy estate,” Wellington is originally a surname and place name, famously borne by Arthur Wellesley as the Duke of Wellington after his triumph over Napolean Bonaparte. Of course, there’s the delicious British dish, beef Wellington, which may have been named after the Duke to celebrate his victory. Rosie Pope chose Wellington for her child, with “Wells” serving as a unique and dapper nickname for short.
