163 Bulgarian Baby Names With Meanings

Names are a lot like humans. Even they come into being, live their life, and then die. Names that were common in Bulgaria at one time are now seen and heard only in history books. The trend has changed significantly now.

Bulgarian given or personal names today are taken from a variety of sources. Greek, Latin, Biblical, Slavic, and Protobulgarian names are found abundantly among the population, with various regional pronunciations and varieties. So names are also associated with a saint’s day or Eastern Orthodox holiday.

Babies in Bulgaria are named after older relatives, grandparents more often, and rarely after their fathers. In the earlier times, when there was a shortage of single name, babies were given a personal name along with the father’s name, with the possessive suffix –ov. But as time went by, even this distinction was not enough. Since then, the family name was borrowed from a family patriarch, or from trade or profession for which the family was known.

Bulgarian names are also gendered, so the suffix of the family name or patronymic will change, depending on the male or female.
