With so many lovely names to choose from the choice of a girl’s name can be overwhelming. It is helpful for some couples to choose a particular theme or inspiration for their baby girl’s name to narrow down their choices. Parents get inspiration for names from all sorts of things, from their favorite travel spots, beloved books or movies, or their heritage. If the Latin or Spanish culture is of particular significance to you, consider a Spanish baby girl name.
The Spanish-speaking world covers a lot of countries and cultural influences, from Spain in Europe, to much of the continents of North America and South America. This rich geography has produced so many amazing and influential Latina and Spanish women throughout history, including Argentina’s legendary First Lady Eva Peron and Chile’s journalist and novelist Isabel Allende, not to mention U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. You will have no shortage of beautiful Spanish girl names to choose from for your newest addition.
Many of these names will be familiar, such as Maria and Anita —coincidentally the two main female characters of West Side Story — but there is a huge selection of obscure Spanish baby girl names with beautiful meanings, too. Most of these names trip off the tongue and, if you can roll your Rs, will sound lyrical and dramatic. Read on to see if one of these names feels like the perfect match for your new little love.
Choosing a name for your baby girl might feel daunting at first, but once you see the perfect name, it will just click. Whether you end up snuggling a tiny Carmen or Sofia, once you meet your daughter you won’t be able to imagine calling her anything else.
