45+ baby names that mean wisdom, intelligent and brilliance


As a parent or soon-to-be parent, it’s your responsibility to instill in your child the right tools and life lessons to make smart and wise decisions. So, why not give them a headstart with a name that emanates wisdom? Smart habits start young, and giving your newborn a name that means wise or wisdom could be just the gentle, wise reminder they need as they wander into their teen and young adult years.

Baby names can be inspirational. Maybe your child will grow up to be a critical thinker or have a passion for academia. A wisdom-inspired namesake can also be a perfect opportunity to teach them that “wisdom” or knowledge isn’t associated with just one type of career, hobby, or interest. Being smart can relate to creative, scientific, or leadership wisdom. If you have baby names on the brain, keep scrolling for a variety of wisdom-inspired names.
