When it comes to selecting a name for your baby, you’ll find loads of inspiration and ideas. But finding a name that has a perfect mix of uniqueness and would transition well into adulthood, would be a bit tricky. Think Mongolian baby names can help unwind the trick?
Mongolian baby names have gone through some major revolution in the history of the nation. Before the spread of Buddhism, Mongols followed the shamanistic belief, which was tied to Earth and its natural phenomenon. This resulted in descriptive names. Names with auspicious connotations or symbols that are believed to bring good fortune to the bearer were also common.
Nowadays, a Mongolian name consists of two words – a noun and its modifier. They pick names that represent a special occasion, like a conquest or victory, animal names (because of the Mongolian culture’s association with herding and hunting), names taken from foreign people and names that reflect qualities parents desire from children. Modern Russian names or mixed Russian names are also on the rise, largely because of Mongolia’s close ties with the Soviet Union. Also, Mongolians are not given any surname. They just put their father’s first name before the given game.
