104 Swiss Baby Names With Meanings

Switzerland, a small country with a large population, is renowned for its linguistic variation. Three-fourths of the total population speak German as their native language, a tad less than half of the total population have Italian as their native language, and the rest speak French. You will notice the same variation in their baby names as well. German Swiss people select popular German names, Italian speakers stick with Italian baby names, and French speakers find comfort in French baby names. Traditional Swiss names are rarely heard.

Another thing to note is that the Swiss people do not experiment much in terms of baby names. They cannot invent names as there are legal guidelines and social conventions against it. The name must be gender neutral, it shouldn’t be a dialect name or a nickname, and must be approved by the Swiss authorities. Even creative spelling isn’t allowed.
