178 Portuguese Baby Girl Names With Meanings

In almost all traditions, people have three different names; their first name, middle name, and the last name. But in Portugal, this practice differs. Most people have one or two first names and then usually two surnames of their mother and father. Many of the Portuguese baby girl names are derived from the names of saints and are from Greek and Latin words. Names that honor Mary are very popular, such as "Dores" or even the events in her life, such as "Inmaculada." Most of the parents give their baby girls quite a long name as there is a tradition of having one or two first names. The first name is often followed by four surnames, which are their maternal and paternal surnames along with surnames of grandparents.

Portugal has many unique and traditional names for the girl baby for example; "Samara" is a beautiful name given to a baby girl which became popular after the famous horror movie character "the ring." This name has many meanings as it is a nature's name, it means winged seeds which grow on the trees such as maple and elms. The Portuguese last names are from their family names which is a traditional heritage a baby gets from both the sides of the family.
