Ayrton: baby boy name meaning and popularity



Derived from the English surname Airton, meaning "town by the Aire" (the Aire being a river, whose name likely means "freely flowing"). Kinda like the pee freely flowing all over the toilet seat when little Ayrton forgets to lift it ... as boys inevitably do.



Famous people named Ayrton:

Race car driver Ayrton Senna; motorcycle racer Ayrton Badovini.

Fun fact:

Author Jules Verne used this name in two of his books: In Search of the Castaways and The Mysterious Island.
