Top Names That Mean Bird

ADVERTISEMENT

WrenHeart

  • Origin:

    English
  • Meaning:

    "small bird"
  • Description:

    Wren, a lilting songbird name, could be the next Robin. It makes a particularly pleasing middle name choice, as does her newly discovered cousin Lark. Wren entered the Top 1000 for the first time in 2012 and is among the new wave of popular English names for girls.

AvianaHeart

  • Origin:

    Variation of Avis, Latin
  • Meaning:

    "bird"
  • Description:

    Aviana is a name that's kinda like the megapopular Ava, and kinda like the popular Ariana, and not quite as widely appealing as either of them. But it's on everyone's scope now as the choice of actress Amy Adams for her new daughter -- ironic as she was quoted as saying she wanted a "normal" name. Turns out that Adams was born in Aviano, Italy, explaining the mystery. The first syllable of the name can be pronounced ah, ay, or (most commonly) to rhyme with have.

AyaHeart

  • Origin:

    Japanese, Hebrew, Arabic
  • Meaning:

    "colorful, bird, sign"
  • Description:

    Simple names have their appeal, but Aya, barely more than a breath, maybe be too simple. It debuted on the US Top 1000 in 2012.

TalonHeart

  • Origin:

    French word name
  • Meaning:

    "large claw of a bird of prey"
  • Description:

    Despite its somewhat menacing meaning, this name has been widely used in recent years, probably due to the appeal of its trendy on ending.

ToriHeart

  • Origin:

    Diminutive of Victoria or Japanese
  • Meaning:

    "bird"
  • Description:

    A more modern nickname for Victoria than Vicky, Tori is used fairly frequently on its own, kept in the public eye by singer Tori Amos and actress Tori Spelling. Still, it's far from fashionable, sinking in the polls significantly since reaching a peak of Number 142 in 1994.
