50 Down-Home Names That Mean Farmer

50 Down-Home Names That Mean Farmer

Agriculture is the foundation for modern civilization, so it makes sense that there are a slew of names inspired by the profession and its workers. Surprisingly, though, many of these farmer-inspired names still enjoy popularity even in the modern, digital world, which goes to show the massive impact they’ve had on cultures worldwide.

Take George, for example. This Greek-derived name literally means ‘farmer,’ and is actually a combination of the Greek words ‘geo’ (‘earth’) and ‘ergon’ (‘work), so you can see how one could get farmer from that. It’s also one of the most popular American boy names ever, having reached the top ten list 49 times since 1880.

If you’re looking to take the road less traveled, consider Bond for your baby boy. Contrary to popular belief, the name also means ‘farmer,’ and not ‘international spy.’ This Old English name hasn’t even broken the top 1,000 list of most popular baby names yet, so consider it if you’re looking for a more original name.

For girls, we love Arla and Charleigh. Arla comes from German, while Charleigh is a feminized variant of Charles, an American name that means ‘manly farmer.’ Both are cute and relatively unconventional choices for your little girl-to-be, as Arla is more popular in the U.K. and Charleigh has yet to make waves as a girl’s name here in the U.S.

Don’t call it a day just yet–we’ve got plenty of more names that mean farmer on our extensive list below.
