Toby

Origin: Netherlands
gender-male
Region Origin: Western Europe

Toby is a popular name, usually given to males, in many English-speaking countries. The name originates from the Middle English vernacular form of Tobias, which is the Greek transliteration of the Hebrew טוביה Toviah, meaning "Good is Yahweh". Yahweh is the name of the Jewish God, and the name Toby is a representation of that divine goodness. The name Toby has Hebrew and English origins and is considered gender-neutral, making it suitable for both boys and girls. Its meaning, "God is good," reflects the faith-based origin of the name, making it an appropriate choice for those who want to pass on their religious values to their child. Even for those who are not religious, Toby remains a sweet and endearing name for a child.
