Byron: baby boy name meaning and popularity


Okay, so it means "cow barn" - and your little Byron might smell like one after a particularly long day of playing outside (or just teenage lack of hygiene, ick) - but this is still a great name. Don't let the meaning dissuade you.


You could call him By, although he might think you're leaving every time you call his name for a while.

Famous people named Byron:

Poet George Gordon (Lord Byron); football players Byron Maxwell, Byron Bell, and Byron Leftwich; basketball players Byron Scott and Byron Larkin; comic Byron Allen.

Fun fact:

Many of us were first introduced to the name Byron via the Baby-Sitters Club book series, where Byron was one of the triplet Pike brothers (along with Adam and Jordan).
