Top 100 baby names number 71
I thought it would be fun to look at the top 100 boys and girls names from last year. I am doing a series on these with their meanings. Enjoy!
Today we have the number 71s - Orla and Nathan.
The origin of Orla (or Órla) is Órfhlaith which means 'golden princess'. The name combines two Gaelic elements ór ('gold') and fhlaith (literally 'prince').
The name Nathan comes from the Hebrew verb נתן (standard Hebrew Natan) meaning 'gave'. So the meaning of Nathan could be 'he was given' or 'he will give'.
