They are Latvian names.

Latvia is a Baltic country located in Northern Europe. And just like in most European cultures, even Latvian names consist of two elements – a given name, and a family name. The practice of giving middle names was discouraged during the Soviet occupation. But with Independence, Latvian legislation allowed the use of two given names.

Male Latvian names end in the first or second declension endings, which could either be -s/-š or -is. A handful of male names, especially the foreign names can end in indeclinable -o. The female Latvian names have fourth or fifth declension endings, which could either be -a or -e respectively. The diminutive forms of names are used when addressing children or expressing endearment.

Latvian names have a variety of sources. They can be influenced by American shows or German knights. Below is our unique collection of Latvian baby names, with meanings.
