Remington: Meaning, Popularity, Origin of Baby Name Remington

Remington

Pronunciation: REH-ming-tən (key)

In the '80s detective show "Remington Steele" the title hero was a fiction, a hyper-masculine name dreamed up by another character. Yet the name Remington isn't pure fantasy. Its roots include the Remington Arms company and Frederic Remington, the great artist of the American West. The tv show is long gone now, but the name has shown staying power.
