95 Czech Baby Names With Meanings


The Czech Republic has given us gems in sports, literature, and business fields. They are inspirational in more ways than you can imagine. This post on Czech baby names will introduce you to a world of unique options originating from this European country. So if you have Czech ancestry and wish to associate your child with it from the beginning, give them a Czech baby name. Czechoslovakia had a traditional naming convention, which continued even after its peaceful split into the Czech Republic in 1993.

The naming convention includes a given name and a surname. The bride can adopt the groom’s surname after marriage. Czech parents are quite traditional and conservative in their name choices. Their names are compound names formed using Slavic elements. These names are phonetically spelled, and the emphasis or stress falls on the first syllable. But now, people have started embracing Biblical and Christian names also. In the Communist era, parents were required to fill out a permission form. This was in case parents chose a name that wasn't on the Czech calendar as each day on the calendar stood for a name.

But since the Velvet Revolution, parents can give any name they want. Czech parents are also known for giving cute nicknames, formed by adding new endings to the given name. These names are typically used in everyday situations. So, whether you are looking for the perfect name that resonates with your Czech heritage or are in search of a name that is unique from the rest of the already available options, this list will satisfy most of your needs. Our carefully curated collection of Czech names will introduce you to beautiful names and provide you with the necessary background information and history to make it easier for you to choose.
