Popular Baby Names By Origin

 Here are most popular names by origin..

The origin of a name can be very important if you are looking to find a baby name that is related to your own family or part of your culture.

Choosing your baby's name is a big responsibility. It's the name that he or she will carefully practice writing out to sign magnificent pieces of preschool artwork. It's the name your child will use to introduce and identify him or herself.

Perhaps you want to choose a unique name that sets your child apart; maybe you want to choose a family name that has deep meaning to you; or maybe you just want a pretty name that's fun or easy to say.

Luckily - or perhaps overwhelmingly - there are thousands of baby names to choose from that come from a wide range of cultures, languages, traditions and stories.

Are you looking for a Turkish name for your baby girl? Consider Aylin, a beautiful name that means "halo around the moon" - what a perfect way to describe your little angel!

Or maybe you want to give your daughter a name with a varied origin and multiple meanings. Try Kairi - a Japanese name that means "village by the ocean." In French, this pretty name means "a melody." No matter which way you spin it, the name is sure to suit your baby girl.

For your baby boy, consider Bodhi - a Sanskrit name that means "seeks out knowledge" - surely a symbol of future intelligence.

A popular Welsh boy name is Dylan, meaning "son of the sea."

Perhaps you'd rather choose a name associated with healing and helping. Try Jin, a Chinese name meaning "precious commodity, compassionate and helping."
