Celebrity Baby Names: Gene Simmons
Celebrity Baby Names:
First name origin: Greek
First name meaning: Well-born
Last name origin: English (southern)
Last name meaning: patronymic either from the personal name Simon (see Simon) or, as Reaney and Wilson suggest, from the medieval personal name Simund (composed of Old Norse sig ‘victory’ + mundr ‘protection’), which after the Norman Conquest was taken as an equivalent Simon, with the result that the two names became confused.
