TOP 200 Swiss Names For Boys And Girls: Origin, Meaning, Variations, And Pronunciation

Swiss names

In order to get acquainted with the variety of names of the inhabitants of Switzerland, you need to understand what this small and beautiful country is like. 

Switzerland is a Christian country located in the heart of Europe comprising thousands of local communities speaking 4 languages [1]. 

Swiss is a nationality that includes various ethno-linguistic groups, with the country being divided into 4 parts: German-speaking Switzerland, Italian-Swiss, Franco-Swiss, and Romansh. This is why Swiss names can have roots in French, German, or Italian.

The history of Switzerland gives us more insight into the origins of Swiss names. Switzerlands was previously inhabited by ancient Celtic groups who used pagan names, then the Roman Empire lent Switzerland Latin names, then with the 5th century came the arrival of Germanic tribes. Around the Reformation, Protestants stopped naming their children after saints recognized by the Catholic Church, and so many Hebrew and Old Testament names began to be used.

All of this rich history can be found within our list of 200 Swiss baby names [2]. We hope you can find the perfect Swiss name for your little one here.
