Another popular moniker of Hebrew origin, meaning "firm" or "strong," Ethan has steadily climbed to the top of the baby name lists in the last few years. Part of the reason for the name's popularity might be that it's an intellectual-sounding moniker, but it doesn't come across as nerdy. Although famous Ethans are harder to come by than some of the other names on our list, droves of parents around the world are selecting it for their tiny tykes, so it'll undoubtedly begin to show up more often on screens and in modern literature.
