If you want your baby to grow up valuing learning, why not consider some names that mean intelligent? There are plenty names that sound smart - and mean it as well! If you're in need of suggestions, browse this intelligent names list. 

Some unique names that mean intelligent come from history and mythology, giving them an extra layer of meaning. The name Minerva, which means intellect, references a Roman goddess and is also associated with the beloved Minerva McGonagall of the Harry Potter series. Cato, name of a prominent figure in the Roman Empire, means wise.

While other names that mean intelligence aren't necessarily historical in nature, they're still attractive choices. While Schuyler is a male name, its more common Dutch variety Skyler can be used for both boys and girls. If you're willing to alter the spelling of the popular name Aiden, the Aydin spelling is a Turkish version that translates to intelligent. Aydin, once very much a boys name, has become increasingly unisex in recent years. There are also cute male names like Savio and Zeki and attractive female names like Alima and Chika to consider.
