Adrian: Boys Baby Name Meaning

Adrian Baby Name

The name Adrian means ‘man from Hadria’.

Adrian is a very ancient name, as ancient as the Etruscan race, an extinct Italic tribe long ago replaced by the Latins.

The name is linked to the Adriatic Sea and may have been borrowed from an Illyrian word ‘adur’ meaning ‘water, sea’.

The early Etruscan settlement in northern Italy on the Adriatic Sea was known as Hadria and the Latin “hadrianus” (Adrian) meant quite literally, ‘man from Hadria’.

The name was most famously borne by a 2nd century Roman Emperor, Hadrian who was best known for erecting Hadrian’s Wall in northern England, then the most northern point of the ever-expanding Roman Empire.

The intent was to protect the new Roman province of Britannia from attacks by the Scottish tribes.

Many Roman Catholic Popes used the name Adrian in the Middle Ages, most notably, Pope Adrian IV (12th century), who has the distinction of being the only English-born Pope to this day.

As an English name, Adrian (which dropped the original H) has been around since the Middle Ages and beyond, but it really didn’t become significantly popular until more recently in the 20th century.

Famous people who share the name Adrian:

Adrian Belew, (musician); Adrian Grenier (actor); Peterson (football player); Pope Adrian I-VI (Popes).
