Friend names

Friend baby names and what they mean, for friend.

These boy names were at the apex of their popularity 9 decades ago (adoption of 1.7%) and have become much less widespread since (adoption 0.4%, 73.8%), with names such as Kelvin becoming somewhat outmoded. Alden (#715) is the most contemporarily stylish baby name here.


Names may be associated with a word, eg. Raven is associated with "dark" but does not mean "dark".
