This name recalls a proper Englishman sipping afternoon tea and strolling along the Thames, but if you name your child Remington, you can call him a cutesy nickname like Remy when he’s young. Remington is a surname turned first name derived from the Old English “hremm,” meaning “raven,” and “tun,” or “settlement.” In Greek mythology, the raven represents good fortune, a sentiment that may have been the impetus for singer Kelly Clarkson to name her son Remington in 2016.
