288 Native American Baby Names With Meanings


Do you know the common denominator between the Sitting Bull, the Chiefdom organization, and The Last of the Mohicans? It’s the Native Americans. But apart from a rich culture, history, and heritage, Native Americans also boast of beautiful and unique names. These names are derived from the indigenous people inhabiting the North and South of America.

Every Native American tribe has a different naming tradition. In some tribes, a baby is not named until he is born and in others, a child can be named only when he/she reaches puberty. Some even name their child after a rite of passage, a life event, a dream, or an accomplishment.

If you want a distinctive and beautiful Native American name, look no further. Use MomJunction's baby name tool to find famous and cool Native American names with meanings. We’ve even included a few Native American variants of Christian and Hebrew names for parents who wish to go the non-traditional route.
