Meanings and history of the name Antoine: | Edit

A young CPA was once named Clayton. One day, his manager decided to give him the name of a fierce gladiator - Claytonius. From Claytonius emerged the nickname "Tony". Did it stop there? Of course not. Tony seemed too simple. Thus, the name Antoine was born.

From the name Antoine, various creative minds have coined some rather ingenious nicknames, such as Twan, Ton-Ton, 'Tuan, Twonn, and Twonny Dolla Bill.
