109 Burmese Baby Boy And Girl Names With Meanings

Burmese is a monosyllabic language, hence every part of their name is a word that can mean one or several things, depending on how it’s pronounced. Naturally, parents select names that denote beautiful elements, desirable qualities, or a form of worldly success.

One or more of a Burmese person’s name would depict the day he was born. This stems from their belief that human destiny is linked with the stars. Even certain letters are described to each day. For instance, a Thursday-born would be given a name beginning with either P, M, or B. Also, a Burmese doesn’t hesitate to change his or her name if they’re dodged by ill-health or bad luck.

Burmese names may sound a bit confusing to foreign ears because they don’t hand down their family surnames. Neither do Burmese women use the names of their husbands. So don’t be surprised if Sein Tun’s son is named Maung Saw Tin.

Also, the prefixes can be a bit difficult to understand at first. A girl will be called Ma until she’s twenty and a boy Maung. However, Ma and Maung also happen to be the given names of girls and boys respectively.

Now let’s check out some of the coolest Burmese names for boys and girls in MomJunction’s list below. We’ve got them in plenty.
