American Baby Names

100+ patriotic choices

American baby names

by Pamela Redmond

Many popular American baby names have their roots somewhere else: Germany (Emma) or Ireland (Liam) or ancient Greek or Hebrew (Sophia and Noah). That’s a lot like the melting pot of cultures that is America itself, but there are also authentically American baby names. These include Native American names, obviously, but also place names most closely identified with the US, names of American heroes, as well as baby names invented in the USA.

In celebration of the 4th of July, here is a collection of 76 American names for girls and boys that might inspire your own choice.

It’s actually offensive to name a child after a Native American tribe, no one who actually wanted to “honour” Native Americans would do such a thing.
