119 Canadian Baby Names With Meanings

Canada is indeed a beautiful country. From well-developed cities to gorgeous landscapes, there isn’t a single thing to not love in Canada. So if you are expecting and want a name that captures the essence of Canada, MomJunction is here for your assistance. To get you started, we’ve compiled a list of Canadian baby names with meanings.

The Canadian naming convention is very similar to that followed in the US and the UK. The children are given a first name and a surname name. Middle name is optional, but not uncommon. They are mostly used only in official documents. The first name, which is also written on the birth certificate, is the formal name by which the child will be identified. The last name is usually the father’s last name, but in some cases, the mother’s last name is also used. Multiple baby names are not very common, but are recognized officially. In all the Canadian states, except Quebec, the wife has the right to take the spouse’s last name after married, as long as it isn’t intended for the purpose of felony. Since Canada is a multicultural nation, people are allowed to pick names that suit their culture and religion. Now let’s check out the Canadian baby names below!
