Hi,
I just wanted to let you know that I saw that the name Anthony, as I tried looking up its meaning on babynames.com, reads “Unknown.”

Well I also happen to have a Name That Baby book that lists its meaning. Would you like to see? Please see attached photos.
Cheers.
J.E.

Dear J.E.
Thank you for writing and providing your source. According to our international name experts, there is no known meaning to the name “Anthony” which originated as a Latin surname.

Apparently the researchers for that book found that the meaning was “unknown” and interpreted that as it meaning “unestimable.” However that is incorrect! It’s unfortunate the number of websites and/or books that propagate incorrect information…

Sincerely,
Jennifer
