With the England team securing their place in the UEFA Euros 2020 final, we are looking at the names making the headlines and possibly the inspiration for your bundle of joy.
With a captain Harry Kane and defender Harry Maguire both named Harry on the team, it could be the perfect name to give your little champion. Harry means ‘Power’ or ‘Ruler’ and remains a popular choice for lots of parents to be.
Midfielder Jude Bellingham’s name has gained growing popularity in recent years. Jude is of Hebrew origin and means ‘Praised’ and can be used for both boys and girls.
Forward and campaigner Marcus Rashford is making a name for himself on and off the pitch and the name Marcus is well liked for many parents. Marcus is of Latin origin and can mean ‘Polite’ and ‘Shining’ so a great choice for your ray of sunshine.
Reece can be used for both boys and girls and has the lovely Welsh meaning of ‘Enthusiasm’. Defender Reece James shares his name with many other famous celebrities who all spell the name slightly differently from Rhys, Reese to Rees, it’s certainly a name to remember.
Jack Grealish has certainly made a name for himself as one of England’s impactful midfielders this year and the name Jack is as popular as ever. The name Jack can be used as a diminutive for many names such as John, Jacob, Jason and Jonathon. Of English origin Jack means ‘God is Gracious’ and we think it will remain in the top name lists for years to come.
Traditionally a last name but growing popularity as a given name. Mason means quite literally ‘One who works with Stone’ and with Mason Mount making his mark this year it could be a name for many little ones to come this year. With it also being a gender-neutral name, it could be a great pick for prince or princess.
