TOP 275 Spanish Names For Boys And Girls: Origin, Meaning, Variations And Pronunciation

Spanish Names

Spain, a popular tourist destination attracting millions of visitors a year, is one of the most interesting countries in Europe.

The official language of Spain is Spanish. This language is now spoken in 20 countries, with over half a billion speakers, a lot of them situated in the United States, where the number of native Spanish speakers will likely overtake the number of native Spanish speakers in Spain in less than 10 years. Spanish is not only easy to learn, but is beautiful, making it a desirable language to people all over the world!

In today’s article, we will be taking a look at Spanish names (and their meanings and histories) from Spain itself. These names are bright and exciting, and a lot of them contain a rolled “R”, a common sound in the Spanish language.

Although names of other cultures and/or eras are becoming common, traditional names are still very popular in Spain. For example: Juan and Juana – “happiness”, “mercy”; Maria – “pure”, “desired”, “serene”; Julio and Julia – “July (month)”. Other types of popular names include: 

  1. Biblical names: María, Magdalena, David. 
  2. Names of Latin and Greek origins: Paola / Paula, Elena, Pablo. 
  3. Names with Germanic origins: Ernesto, Enrique, Frida. 

The suffix “-ito” for boys and the suffix “-ita” for girls are added to the names to create diminutive forms. For example, a girl named Paula could be called ‘Paulita’ and a boy called Juan could be called ‘Juanito’.

Though fond of long and complex names, the Spanish prefer to use abbreviated forms of names. For example, Gabriela is truncated to form an abbreviated form: Gabi.

Spanish names have three parts: a personal name and two surnames. The Spanish tend to be Catholics, and the importance of the church can be noticed when choosing names for newborns.

In Spain, at the moment, there are no strict laws or traditions around naming. Given that it’s not offensive, a designation of a thing, derisive, or a geographical object, a child can be given any name. Foreign names are used a lot. However, no more than two personal names and two surnames can be recorded in documents. 

We hope that this article of Spanish names for boys and girls will inspire you! Perhaps a beautiful Spanish name is a right fit for your baby!
