Fidel derives from the Latin word for faithful 'Fidelis'. Though it's a name made infamous by the Cuban dictator Fidel Castro.

I love this name, even with the whole Fidel Castro thing. I have a friend who wants to name his son Sidel in honor of his friend Fidel.

All I can think of when I hear this name is "infidel".
-- emmiix3  3/11/2009
Yes, but obviously Fidel is the exact opposite of "Infidel".
-- JJSkeete  10/2/2010
In many countries this name is chiefly associated with Fidel Castro.

The name Fidel was given to 99 baby boys born in the US in 2012. Benito is currently more popular but I don't think I'd advise using either for obvious reasons.

It wouldn't be a very good idea to use this name outside of a Spanish-speaking country, mostly because of the polarizing late leader of Cuba.
