Baby Name Meanings

Are you looking for a name for your baby? Choosing a name these days is a big deal to most parents and the decision is often a tough one. Parents usually take a lot of characteristics into considerations before picking an original name for their beloved children and if you’re reading this, chances are you’re in the same tight spot that every modern parent finds himself in.

One of the first characteristics when choosing a name is its origin. The origin of a name can be either: American, African, Muslim, Latin, Hindu, Irish, Spanish, German, Italian, Japanese, and many more. All parents have to do is make some research over the internet, or in another way possible and choose a name that they like. This characteristic is perfect for those who choose their name for their babies based on their origin. There are a lot of baby names in these languages that have specific meanings, such as Fabrizio, which is Italian for “legendary", Aaron, which is :mountain" in Hebrew, or Tacita, latin for “shy".

Most parents look up the meaning of the name they plan on giving to their children. The baby name can have a historical meaning, a religious meaning, or the names can mean different qualities and virtues. They can also mean a deep, beautiful message which can be inspirational and/or spiritual. Also, parents can choose a name that once belonged to a special person in their life so they name their baby after that person just so they can remember the person or maybe to keep a constant reminder of that special one. Another example of a special meaning of a baby name is using the names of famous people that parents like or love and use it to name their own bundle of joy. It is really important not to choose a name that has a negative meaning, due to someone named similarly having a bad image all together (for example, naming your son Adolf, Saddam, Iosif or Osama won’t give him a good reputation now, will it).

Most black people use such interesting, beautiful and unique names for their baby using African baby names. The origins and the meanings of African baby names are really personal and extremely meaningful. For example: Abiodun is an African boy’s name and it is given to one born during war; Enam is a boy’s name and it means Gift from God.

Of course there are also a lot of popular religious baby names that many Christians use to name their children, such as: Abigail, which is a girl’s name and it means “wife of King David", described as “good in discretion and beautiful in form", or Adonia another Hebrew baby name which means “The Lord is my God".

Parents these days search for a baby name that is original, with a special meaning, interesting to pronounce, and they try and try to find or even create a unique baby name which can reflect something meaningful for the parents as well as for their beloved babies. If you’re running out of inspiration, you can easily check out baby name meanings on the Internet.

Keep these characteristics and examples of baby name meanings in mind when the time comes to name your baby. Good Luck!
