Spanish Names for Girls
by Pamela Redmond
Spanish names for girls have never been more popular in the States than they are today. Spanish girls’ names are especially well-used in Hispanic communities, of course, but Spanish names for girls such as Gabriela and Isabella have crossed over in a huge way.
Along with Isabella and Gabriela, other Spanish girls’ names in the US Top 300 include Ana, Angelina, Elena, Jada, Liliana, Maya, Savannah, and Sofia. Baby girl names popular in Spain include Lucia – also a favorite throughout Latin America– Maria, Martina, and Paula.
Unique Spanish names for girls that deserve more attention include Alba, Carmen, Laia, and Triana.
Many parents in the US and Latin America look for names that bridge the cultures. Along with Lucia and Sofia, baby girl names that work in both English and Spanish include Alicia, Eloisa, Isla, Julietta, Marisa, Paloma, and Viviana.
