Meaning of Wyatt

Thanks to Wyatt Earp, we think of Wyatt as a distinctive American Old West name when, in fact, it derives from an old Franco-Norman surname, itself originating from an Olde English personal male name “Wīgheard.” The name is made up of Old Anglo-Saxon elements “WIG”, meaning “war, battle” and “ear” meaning “hard, firm, solid, not soft”, derived from the Proto-Germanic root *hardu- meaning “severe, cruel, very hard”. In other words, Wyatt is a bad-ass. It's almost like Wyatt Earp was meant to have such a name - as Sigmund Freud said, our names are perhaps a "piece of our soul". In any case, Wyatt was a name made famous to Americans by Wyatt Earp (for more on Wyatt Earp, see the historical references below).



The number eight personality has a lot to do with power, wealth, and abundance. In some ways, this personality has been blessed on the material plane, but his authoritarian and problem-solving traits provide evidence that his good fortunes are not just lottery luck. They are well deserved. Eights are intensely active individuals, high energy. They are remarkable for their ability to see the bigger picture down to the smallest details, and organize a strategy around success. They then have the ability to lead a group around them towards any goal, and develop individual potential to get the most out of their team.


The name received several reinforcements in recent years with the release of the many popular films about the famous lawman, Wyatt Earp, reminding the parents who expect the name of all Americans. However, Wyatt didn't really take over the charts until the mid-1990s. The name finally reached Top 100 status in 2004, and has been gaining ground ever since. The name will forever be associated with ruggedness, pioneering ruggedness and the Old West. From this perspective, the name is "all boy" (not to mention its "battle list" etymology).

Wyatt was the ONLY name my husband and I could agree on, and we have only received positive responses to it. EVERYONE comments on what a strong name it is. I have already prepared myself with the comments about Wyatt Earp and Quiet Wyatt, and figure it will be worth every minute of it. His middle name will be Anthony after my grandfather.

Our son is named Wyatt John (born 2017). He is smart, outgoing and headstrong. We came across the name in a Baby Book and also knowing of Wyatt Earp, we loved it. We had also heard it on the tv show Charmed. A few comments have been'that its different, and most have said they love it. A lot of older generation love it because of Wyatt Earp. We live in a large country town in Australia - the name isnt as popular here as in US; we know of one other Wyatt (younger) in our town. Our 2nd son is Ethan (born 2018) so the names really go together..both strong country names.

My son's name is Wyatt and it suits him to a T. You don't hear it very often but it's not some strange, unknown name.

We called our 6 month old Lexi. Her middle name is Grace. I love it but I'must admit many people didn't like it. It really suits our little girl. We are in australia. It is unusual here.

We named our precious baby boy Landon in January 09'. My favorite combo is Landon Matthew, but we did Landon Philip b/c Philip is his daddy's name:) I love unique, but beautiful names and hopes Landon grows to love it too! We call him baby Lan a lot! I think it is funny when I say his name and a rare few think his name is Langden. I wonder if it is a southern thing? lol
