Spanish Girl Names We Love
Famous Latina Names
Top Pick: Frida
Give your daughter someone to look up to by naming her after a trailblazing Latina – from a fight-for-justice celeb like America Ferrera to the simply iconic Frida Kahlo.
Top Pick: Valentina
Pick a name that means something...literally! Courage. Wisdom. Truth. The sky’s the limit. One of our faves is Valentina, which means “strong” and “healthy.”
Most Popular Names
Top Pick: Sophia or Sofia
Sophia, which means “wise,” is one of the most popular baby names, according to the Social Security Administration, and its variant Sofia is a consistent top-performer too. (Check out the 100 Most Popular Baby Names of 2019!) But, believe it or not, it’s been around since the fourth century.
Top Pick: Estrella
You could tell from that very first sonogram photo – your bebé’s a star. So give her a name that’s out-of-this-world too. Like Estrella, which means “star.”
Top Pick: Sarita
Okay, she might not be a royal...yet (hola, Meghan Markle!), but she’s still your princesa. A name that reflects past or present Spanish royalty, or one with regal meaning, lets the world know there’s a new contender for the throne on the block. We’re partial to Sarita, which means “princess.”
Celebrity Kids Names
Top Pick: Amada
Thanks to Instagram, the babies of celebs are just as adored as their famous mamis and papis (we’re talking about you, Santiago Bastón, aka Eva Longoria Bastón’s adorable son!). We especially love the name that Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling gave their youngest daughter – Amada. Not only is it the name of Eva’s grandmother, but it means “beloved.”
Top Pick: Itzel
Show your Latina pride by picking a name with indigenous roots. Itzel, which means “rejoice,” is thought to be a variant of Ixchel, the name of the Mayan goddess of the earth, moon, and medicine.
- Xochitl, an Aztec name that means “flower”
- Sesasi, a Purépecha name that means “pretty”
- Yamanik, a Kʼicheʼ name that means “emerald”
- Citlali, a Nahua name means “star”
- Soona, an Otomí name that means “moon”
Top Pick: Milagros
Whether you go to church every Sunday or haven’t been since 1996, a name with soul can be a beautiful way to express your gratitude, faith, or connection to your little blessing. Like the name Milagros, which means “miracle.”
Pop Culture Names
Top Pick: Coco
Your favorite movie and TV show character might be fictional, but your love for them isn’t! We’re absolutely cuckoo for the name Coco, from everyone’s favorite Pixar movie Coco.
Short and Sweet Names
Top Pick: Paz
Sometimes the shortest names pack the most meaning. Take Paz, which means “peace” in Spanish. It’s short and to the point with just the right amount of spunk.
Names of Beauty
Top Pick: Ella
Your baby is beautiful inside and out, so give her a name that’s sure to dazzle. Like Ella, which means “beautiful fairy.”
