Before World War II and the horror of the Holocaust, as many as 10 million or more Jews spoke Yiddish, an old language that had its roots in German and some Middle Eastern languages. Today, estimates put the number of Yiddish speakers around a million, tops. Choosing a name with roots in the culturally symbolic language could be an awesome tribute to Jewish ancestors and heritage.

One name, three spelling variations: that’s what you’ll find on the list of popular Yiddish-origin girls names. Shaina (and Shayna, and Shanna) are from Yiddish and mean ‘beautiful.’

If you don’t find your name on this list, head over to our chart of the top 100 most popular girls’ names chosen by parents so far this year. This list is continuously updated through data we receive from the 1,500-plus hospitals where we operate Mom365 Newborn Photography, so it’s always showing the latest in baby name trends. Happy hunting and congrats on your pregnancy!
