Almonzo Wilder’s Name

Hi Jennifer!

 Thanks so much for babynames.com. I love to daydream about names, and your site is a treasure trove.

I’m also an avid reader, and I have been re-reading some of my childhood favorites, including the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. As you may know, Laura Ingalls married Almonzo Wilder. I became curious about the name Almonzo, but I don’t see it on your site. Do you know what it means?

 Thanks so much,

Chelsea Rothschild

Dear Chelsea,

Thank you for your kind words. It’s always nice to hear from a fan!  The name Almonzo is most likely a Spanish derivative of the Arabic name El-Mansur, which means “Victorious One.” We have added it to the BabyNames.com database.

Sincerely,

Jennifer
