Give baby a clean slate to start off on with the masculine moniker White. Originally used as a surname, White came from the Old English hwīt, meaning “white” or “fair,” and was a nickname given to people with a pale complexion or white hair. White also has Scottish and Irish roots and makes for a fitting choice that will celebrate baby’s Celtic heritage. The nature of the name, however, leaves a lot of room for baby to draw their own meaning upon it!
