Linden

Gender: Masculine
Origin: English

The name comes directly from the English word for the tree. The name itself is derived from the Anglo-Saxon lind meaning “lenient; flexible.”

It is currently the 88th most popular male name in British Columbia, Canada (2010). Its recent spike in popularity may be due to the fame of Canadian hockey player Linden Rowat (b.1989).
