Baby Name Meanings and Origins

The origins of different given names (also known as first names or 'Christian names') are nearly as broad as the names themselves, but there are particular themes and historic customs. Some stem from strong historic cultures such as Latin, French, Germanic, Hebrew, Celtic and Slavic names. Some names are historically given to represent a personal or physical trait (for example Faith, or Calvin meaning bald!)

Whether you choose a name to honor an ancestor, as a religious or spiritual token or simply because you like the way it sounds, our baby names database will help you discover the origin and meanings of over 14,000 baby names.
