Trinity is a beautiful Latin name that’s sound modern and millennial (think Trinity from Keanu Reeves’ Matrix trilogies), but it’s actually rooted in Christianity and idea of “threefold” or “three-in-one”  — specifically the Holy Trinity which consists of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This religious name is considered a unisex name, but is used mostly for girls. Trinity (as a girl’s name) became popular amongst parents during the 20th century.

The name Tristan (sometimes referred to as “Tristram”) is an English/Celtic name very popular in Christianity and it means ‘outcry’,’tumult’ or ‘sorrowful.’ Most people remember the name from the Arthurian legend “Tristan and Isolde.”  In this romantic, medieval tale, Tristan was a Knight of the Round Table and a hero who falls in love with Isolde (who was promised to King Mark of Cornwall) after they both drank a poisonous potion.  Tristan is considered a unisex name, but most parents favor it as a boys name. The female counterpart of the name Tristan is Trista, but Trinity and Tristan has a nice ring to it.
