Names That Mean White or Fair

Baby names that mean fair are perfect for light-toned or blonde-haired babies. Many fair baby names originated in Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, where pale-skinned children were common. Names for fair babies include those with more conspicuous ties to lightness, like Whitney and Fairchild, as well as names with subtler connections, such as Fiona and Banning.

Along with Fiona and Whitney, other names that mean white or fair in the US Top 1000 include Finley, Finn, Gavin, Gwendolyn, Ingrid, McKinley, Nola, and Teagan. Fair baby names with origins beyond Western Europe include Arjun, Hiroko, Laban, and Zuleika.

You’ll notice many names on this list that end in -wen and -wyn, which are Welsh components meaning “white.” Contrary to American standards, -wen indicates a feminine name, and -wyn indicates a masculine name. If you’re expecting a fair baby, these names are worth your consideration.
