99 Chamorro Baby Names With Meanings

Chamorro is an Austronesian language spoken by the indigenous people of Mariana Island, which is divided between the US Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands in Micronesia and US territory of Guam. When you take a look at the names of Chamoru people, you’ll notice that they have a Spanish first name and a Chamorro second name. And on a closer look, you’ll find that almost every person has a unique second name. This lack of duplication implies that the Chamorus do not draw names from a collection of name words. But instead, pick and make names from the lexicon of daily language. Also, most of the names or words are not associated with any particular gender as it is in European countries.

Since the names are derived from everyday words, parents use them to convey any message they like. The names even describe the occasion or situation during which the child was born. While most of the Chamorro names have positive meanings, some even express hardship, striving, despair, and deprivation. Some names even revolve around basic needs such as the desire for food.

Another thing to note is that Chamorro people do not have surnames or family names. The given name is the official name of baptismal and the Chamorro name is used in day to day life.

Below MomJunction has compiled a list of authentic Chamorro names for your assistance. Take a look.
