Nathan is of Hebrew origin, coming from the Old Testament and meaning "given." The name's peak popularity in 2010 coincides with the one-year-earlier premiere of the hit TV show "Castle," which stars Canadian American actor Nathan Fillion. The name's peak popularity also came in the wake of the peak viewership of "Gossip Girl," where one of the main characters (played by Chace Crawford) was named Nate.
