Cain is a Baby Boy Name

Find out the meaning behind the name Cain.

The name Cain is a boy's name of Hebrew origin meaning "spear; possessed". Biblical name Cain was, until recently, seldom heard outside of the Old Testament and soap operas. Although Cain's murderous actions will always make this name difficult for some, Cain, Eve and Adam's firstborn, was a farmer - making this a good choice for those with farming connections. Long outshone by Abel, Cain is starting to find a broader audience, helped along by homophones Kane or Caine.
