A Celtic place name for the River Clyde, which itself is an Anglicized version of the Gaelic name "Cluaidh." So if your little Clyde splashes vigorously in the tub and makes a river of water on the bathroom floor, just remind yourself he has a destiny to live up to.


Clyde is pretty much just Clyde.

Famous people named Clyde:

Infamous bank robber Clyde Barrow; singer Clyde McPhatter; cinematographer Clyde De Vinna; football player Clyde Gates; basketball player Clyde "The Glide" Drexler.

Fun fact:

If your little Clyde is a fan of the Nickelodeon animated series "The Loud House," he'll no doubt be familiar with the character on that show named Clyde McBride.
