Simon: baby boy name meaning and popularity


Greek form of the Hebrew name Shim’on, which means “he has heard.” This is especially true when he’s a toddler and refuses to say things like “book” and “car” but repeats “shit” crystal-clear after he hears you say it once.



Famous people named Simon:

South American revolutionary Simon Bolivar; actors Simon Helberg, Simon Pegg, and Simon Baker; music producer/TV show judge Simon Cowell.

Fun fact:

“Simon’s Cat” is an adorable animated series by British animator Simon Tofield.
