84 Czech Baby Names With Meanings

The Czech Republic has given us gems in the areas of sports, literature, and business. They are inspirational in more ways than you can imagine. So if you have Czech ancestry and wish to associate your child with it from the very beginning, give him or her a Czech baby name.

Czechoslovakia had a traditional naming convention, which was 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 a permission form. This was in case parents choose a name that wasn't on the Czech calendar as each day on the calendar stood for a name. But since Velvet Revolution, parents have the right to give any name they want.

Czech parents are also known for giving cute nicknames, which are formed by adding new endings to the given name. These names are typically used in everyday situations. Search through MomJunction's collection of Czech baby names with meanings below.
