Etymology & Historical Origin - Warren

Warren is the transferred use of an English surname originating from the medieval Norman-French. It has one of two possible origins. One, it comes from a place name in Normandy so-called La Vareene, form the French word “warrene” meaning ‘game park; animal enclosure’. Two, it’s derived from a Germanic personal name from “war(in)” meaning ‘guard’. This is one of the oldest recorded surnames in England, first appearing in the Domesday Book in 1086 as “de Warenne” during the reign of William the Conqueror. The American Joseph Warren was the among the first Revolutionary War heroes, killed at Bunker Hill on June 17, 1775 which was famously depicted in an oil painting by John Trumbull. The usage of Warren as a given name was probably in part influenced by this man. While not particularly popular, Warren is on the naming charts of both the United States and France.

Popularity of the Name Warren

The name Warren dates back to at least 1880, the first year that the U.S. government began tracking naming trends. This name was quite popular in the late 19th century – typically on the Top 100 list. As we turned into the 20th century, Warren still enjoyed respectable usage and in 1917 returned to the Top 100 favorites. In the early-1920s, Warren was at the top of his “game” when the name got as high at position #24 on the charts (1921). However, by the mid-40s, Warren was clearly on the path of a slow but steady decline. Today, the name Warren has reached some of his lowest levels on the charts; this is clearly a name no longer in vogue. Barely 500 baby boys receive this moniker on an annual basis today. The name has a strong, handsome and intelligent quality thanks to the combinations of famous men like Warren Beatty and Warren Buffet.

    Warren - Boy Baby Name - Historic Figures

    Warren G. Harding (2 Nov 1865 - 2 Aug 1923) - Warren G. Harding was America’s 29th President serving from 1921 until his death in 1923. We hate to be the bearer of bad news to all his namesakes out there, but Harding is widely considered one of the worst U.S. Presidents in history. Why? Well, we’ll tell you. Warren Harding began his life in Ohio where he became a self-made publisher and rose quickly in state politics (mainly because he was quite content to let the “machine bosses” rule the roost). A conservative Republican, a ceremonial politician, a strong orator, good-natured, and a man with small-town appeal, it’s no wonder that fellow Republicans looked to nominate him on their 1920 presidential ticket. Ironically, Harding won by a landslide (60% of the popular vote) thanks to his well-orchestrated “Return to Normalcy” slogan which resonated well with Americans at the time. He rewarded his supporters (known as “the Ohio gang”) with prominent positions in his administration. He did, however, appoint some good, capable men, such as Herbert Hoover as Secretary of Commerce. The problem with Harding is that he wouldn’t take a stand. He didn’t want to risk making enemies and so he turned the other cheek on his cheating, dishonest “friends”. Harding was a pro-business President but knew little about foreign policy; his Secretaries of the Treasury, State and Commerce essentially ran the show. Harding was no visionary. In the end, he died quietly in his sleep in San Francisco while on a political tour of the west. Good thing for him, too. His administration was about to be called out for its far-reaching corruption.

Personality of the Boy Name Warren

The number Seven personality is deeply mystical and highly in tune with their spirituality. They operate on a different wavelength than the average joe. Spending time alone comes easily to Sevens, as it gives them time to contemplate philosophical, religious and spiritual ideas in an effort to find "real truth".  Sevens are wise, but often exude mystery as if they are tapped into something the rest of us don't understand. They love the outdoors and are fed by nature. Sevens are constantly seeking to understand human nature, our place in the universe, and the mystery of life in general. This makes them quite artistic and poetic, but they are also keen observers with high intellect - so they are equally scientific-minded. Sevens are charitable and care deeply about the human condition.
