121 Belgian Baby Names With Meanings

Belgium, a small country with 10 million inhabitants, sitting right in the heart of Western Europe is subjected to cultural influences more than any other European country. One of the major results of this is that Belgium has three or more given languages, Dutch, in Flanders, French in southern Belgium and German in a tiny part of Wallonia bordering Germany. These languages also bring differences in naming the babies, so much so that separate statistics are kept for these three different regions of the country.

The first names in Belgium are majorly French, German, and Dutch. The family names in the country are inherited from the given name of the ancestor. Noble name tied to the town or village, geographic origin, and the physical attribute of the ancestor are also considered. Some family names also reflect the profession of the first ancestor, such as De Backer and Boulanger, which means ‘baker’, or De Smedt which means ‘smith'. Women are not required to change their surname after their marriage. Below, you can check out MomJunction's collection of Belgian baby boy and girl names.
