While some consider it old-fashioned, Wilfred maintains its admirable reputation as a classic British name for boys. This ancient title has been in England for over a thousand years, but its roots span even further to the Old High German Willifrid. Meaning “desiring peace” or “desiring friendship,” Wilfred offers a noble starting point for baby’s life of balance and unity. Bonus points for the cute nicknames Wil and Freddie.
