Meaning

This is one in the series of first names that were originally last names, and a relatively recent fixture on lists for boy’s names. Beckett has origins in Anglo-Saxon history, where the Old English meaning is “beehive”. It’s not as common as some other transfers from the last-name category, which could make it an ideal option if you’re looking for something that doesn’t sound overused.
