Spanish Female Names
For Gorgeous Girls
Spanish female names English translation: Seeking inspiration for the ideal Spanish girls name?... Then check out this list of Spanish names for girls, complete with origins and meanings. Towards the end of the page, you'll discover a link to a list of Spanish boy names. And, if you wish to browse thousands of Spanish names, the Kindle book mentioned could be for you.
Although not quite so popular in more recent years, traditionally, many frequently-used Spanish names for girls have been in some way connected to the Virgin Mary... You'll come across several in the list below.
For example, Consolación or Consuelo means consolation and is taken from the title of the Virgin Mary, Nuestra Señora del Consuelo, meaning Our Lady of Consolation.
María is probably the best-known of Spanish female names - again, because of religious connotations - and was often used as a double-barrel name, for example María José or María Teresa.
In the Spain of to-day, there is a slight drift away from Biblical, Saints' names, and double-barrel names, with parents-to-be considering more international names, and taking into account the sound of the name and its meaning.
Have fun browsing through the list below ... I hope it sparks off some ideas for suitable names for your baby-to-be.
