161 Bosnian Baby Names With Meanings

Bosnia is a multiethnic, multicultural, and multinational country and the diverseness is mirrored in the names as well.

Bosnian, a South Slavic language, is the official language of both Bosnia and Herzegovina, along with Serbian and Croatian. It’s basically the uniform version of the Croatian-Serbian language. The language comprises both Cyrillic and Latin alphabets and even has a few Persian, Arabic, and Turkish words in the lexicon. This is primarily due to Bosnian people’s interaction and friendship with these cultures. And this is the reason Turkish, Arabic, and Persian names are used widely in Bosnia.

The first name or personal names of Bosnian often, not always, tells about the background and culture of the individual. Bosnian Muslims give personal names as well as derivations of the original Arabic name to their children. They also pay extreme importance to the meaning of the name, because it has been made clear in the Hadith to pick only beautiful and good names for children. Christians and Hebrews residing in Bosnia pick names derived from the Bible, Torah, and Old Testament.
