This gallant old name was made famous by the romantic hero who was supposedly eight-foot-tall and the nephew of Charlemagne the King of Franks. Roland, which means ‘famous throughout the land’  has been celebrated in both medieval poetry and song. The name is of German descent, but the name is commonly heard in the U.S. now in its Spanish form, Rolando.

If your unborn already seems to have a big personality in the womb, then this would be a very appropriate name for him. Your baby boy will already be born a star. A star in his mother’s eyes, but naming him Roland may just solidify his fate. You can spell the name with one l or two. A cute nickname for little Roland or Rolland would be Rolo.
