Meaning of the baby name HAMLET.

  

HAMLET.  Anglicized form of Danish Amleth (Icel. Amlódi, q.v.), possibly meaning "dull, foolish, imbecile, weak person."  Hamlet, prince of Denmark, a tragedy by Shakespeare. (Praenomina, Charnock, 1882).

... It has been said, "Hamlet acts the madman to hide his thought, like Brutus."  In fact, it is easy for apparent imbecility to hatch a great project; the supposed idiot can take aim deliberately.  But the case of Brutus is not that of Hamlet.  Hamlet acts the madman for his safety... (William Shakespeare, Hugo, 1899)
