25 Indo-European Baby Names With Meanings

Naming a baby is a tedious, yet exciting process as it will be the first gift that you will give him. Most of the parents look for a name that honors a loved one, has a special meaning, and sounds unique. But another tried, tested, and successful strategy is giving a name from a different country, heritage, or culture. That being said, what do you think about Indo-European baby names?

The Indo-European language is a family of 445 languages related dialects and languages, with a majority belonging to modern languages of Europe, Iran, and Asia. Even the Indo-European names are as varied as the languages.

Naming a child isn’t just about selecting some arbitrary sounds that can be associated with a child in Indo-European regions. It is about cementing the future life and reputation of the individual. Even the naming process is ritualistic in these areas. After the birth of the child, parents wait at least nine days for naming, so that the mother can recover from childbirth. On the tenth day, the child is given a name after an elaborate bathing ritual for the mother. This process can be seen in Greek, Indian, German, Iranian, and Roman cultures.

The Indo-European names reflect their values of religion, culture, battles, strength, and leadership. Scroll down to check out MomJunction's collection of Indo-European names with meanings.
