Wilmore is a masculine name of German origin. Both a given name and surname, it stems from a place name composed of the Old English wilde and mōr, meaning “wolves moor.” It is a variant of Wilmer and has the definition of “strong desire,” which can offer a subtle nod to baby’s strength and enthusiasm. Wilmore is also thought to be a variant of the long-loved regal title William, which means “resolute protector,” and can be easily shortened to Will as a sweet nickname.
