Meaning of name King

King's name comes from the English vocabulary word denoting a male monarch. King is ultimately derived from the Olde English word "cyning" (king), which is often used as a nickname to signify someone who exhibits regal qualities or performs in a regal manner. Over time the king became a surname and is one of the few that predate the Domesday Book of 1086 (recorded as "Cyng"). Apart from being a popular nickname, Rey as a surname was also, in some cases derived from a name at work, denoting that it was employed in the royal household. As a given name, King has been used primarily in the United States. On the one hand, parents hope to project the same 'royal' qualities on their children (similar to title names of Duke or Earl).


King was actually quasi-popular in the late 1800s. The name appeared on US male naming charts as early as 1880 (the first year the government began tracking naming trends in the country). By the 1960s, the name had retreated into the shadows and fell off the charts altogether. King was basically not used at all in the United States for nearly 50 years; completely forgotten. However, the name would finally make a triumphant return very recently in 2006; the same year that Gwen Stefani named her first child Kingston. King is not as popular as Kingston on the charts, but some parents opted for the simpler, shorter version. There is nothing shy or modest about this name. Rey is reserved for parents who aren't exactly subtle about embracing their pride and hopes for their children. There's something quite charming about that; in an “in-your-face” kind of way.
