388 Baby Names That Mean Desire

Choosing a name for your child is the biggest decision a parent can make. Should you pick something trendy or out of left field, something that honors a loved one, or just stick with the classic? Or how about naming your child after a strong wish or want, or desire?

Desire is tremendously important in life. It compels us to work towards something that’s better for us and others. If there weren't desire, most things we have in the world right now wouldn’t exist. If you are satisfied with the status quo, you’ll remain passive, not looking to advance and not wanting to accomplish much.

Yes, desire does have a bad side, particularly when it degenerates into envy, obsessiveness, and covetousness. And literature is filled with examples of people who wished for something wrong and ended up hurting themselves. But inherently, desire is wonderful. You just need to ensure that the object of your desire is attainable. And if it’s not, then one must not pursue it.

Below is MomJunction's list of baby names meaning desire from African, French, German, Hungarian, Spanish, and Indian backgrounds. Peruse through the list and choose the best for your little one. Because it’s the name you choose that will be a part of your child’s identity.
