Search Girl Names by Origin

Browse our complete roster of girls’ names by language or culture of origin below. These lists of names by origin can be a useful tool if you’re searching for baby girl names that signify your ethnic heritage, symbolize a country or a culture that’s meaningful to you, or harmonize well with your surname or other family names. If you want to give your daughter an Irish or a Portuguese name, for instance, you can start with the appropriate master list and then drill deeper on the names that intrigue you.

These lists refer to a name’s linguistic roots, not necessarily names popular or well-used in the corresponding country. On this page we include those origins with significant numbers of girl names in our database. If you’re looking for names for your baby girl from a more specific culture from Cornish to Yiddish, you can find a complete roster of all our names by origin here.
