Girl Names by Origin
A search of girl names by origin is an excellent starting point for finding a name for your daughter. These lists of girl names by origin can be a useful tool if you’re searching for 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 complete list and then drill deeper on the names that intrigue you.
These lists of girl name origins 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.
