Lourdes Origin and Meaning

The name Lourdes is a girl's name of Basque origin meaning "craggy slope".

This name of the French town where a young peasant girl had a vision of the Virgin Mary in 1858 vaulted into the spotlight when Madonna chose it for her daughter, but few other families except for devout Roman Catholics have followed her lead (any more than they've used Rocco for their sons).
