Milan Origin and Meaning

The name Milan is a girl's name of Slavic origin meaning "gracious, dear".
In many Slavic and other European countries, Milan is purely a boys’ name, but in the US, it's also popular for girls – no doubt inspired by the fashionable Italian city. It entered the Top 1000 for boys in 2013, while for girls it has been in the Top 1000 since 2009.

The more exclusively feminine Mila and Milana are becoming more popular for girls and singer Shakira has chosen Milan for her son. In America, Milan looks set to remain one of the most stylish unisex names of the moment.
