147 Estonian Baby Names With Meanings

Baby naming is such a huge responsibility! Should you go classic or trendy? Historical or celebrity? Will the trendy name you pick now sound good when the baby has transitioned into adulthood? Does the chosen name combine well with the surname as well? No wonder some parents spend almost nine months discussing names. But if you’re looking for a unique baby girl name, why not try one of the Estonian baby names?

Estonia, a flat country located on the eastern shores of the Baltic Sea, does not have to try to be different. It’s unique in the truest sense. The country may share its history and geography with Lithuania and Latvia, but its culture is truly distinct. The same can be said about Estonia baby names.

The naming laws in Estonia are as strict as most of the European countries. Parents cannot be creative in terms of baby names. They need to pick names approved by the government. Even the naming convention is similar to other European countries – a name, followed by the surname. Middle name is optional. Explore MomJunction's list of Estonian baby names with meanings below.
