Monk names

Monk names and what they mean, for monk, priest, monastery, abbot, pilgrim, monastic, hermit.

These boy names were at the apex of their popularity during 1960-1969 (usage of 0.1855%) and are almost as popular today (usage 0.1735%, down 6.4%), but with names like Kelly, Palmer, Sumner, Terence and Ira becoming somewhat outmoded. The more fashionable birth names among these are Maximus (#192), Miles (#108), Eli (#49), Damian (#102) and Dominic (#69), and there is a rebound in birth name popularity for Eli and Miles. Damman (top 21%) and Mieles (33%) are popular last names.
