BASQUE NAMES

If you are going to be a father in a short period of time, it is very possible that you are already thinking about what name you can give him. It is one of the most frequent doubts among parents and many times not even one option is considered. In this modern world, it is increasingly common to use names in other languages, such as Basque (beyond the Basque Country), to name a boy or a girl.

Here, in this article I am going to show you the selection of Basque names for women and men, each of them beautiful, classic, modern and original so you can choose the one you like the most for your new baby. If you don’t like any of the names on the list, maybe reading them will give you a slight idea of which one you could use in the end.

Why name your baby boy or girl in Basque?

BASQUE NAMES

Having a cultural richness greatly benefits society. There are an infinite number of beautiful names in the Basque language, and besides, many of them you probably didn’t know they came from this language. You will give an original name to your child from the moment he/she is born, and he/she will be able to stand out from the rest in the future. If you don’t want your child to have a very common name, choose a name in Basque, even if you don’t live in this autonomous community or you are from outside Spain.
