- English: Color name and a variant for Redman, Redley, and related names
Are you hoping for a fiery personality or a red-head? Then Red may be an appropriate choice. Not surprisingly, the name is more commonly used as a nickname for red-headed children. If you want the meaning, but not the obviousness, try Flynn or Adam instead, which also mean—you guessed it—red. Fun fact: there are an unbelieveable number of professional athletes named Red. Seriously. So. Many.
