216 Romanian Baby Names With Meanings

In the second century, Dacia, which is known by the name Romania today, was turned into a Roman province. This led to the evolution of Romanian language, which was a mix of Latin and native tongues. The Germans, Bulgarians, and Slavic also left their mark on the Romanian language after their attempt at invasion. This resulted in a rich legacy of language, which is reflected in the different cultural groups.

Just like the language, even the Romanian names have a variety of origins – Slavic, Latin, German, Greek, Hungarian, and names of neighboring countries. Since Romania has a huge population of Catholics, some names are inspired by Bible, saints, and historical figures as well.

A Romanian name consists of a given name and a surname. The given name or names are usually chosen by the parents of the baby. In the case of more than one given name, the first one is used in daily life and the second one is used solely on official documents. A Romanian baby boy name ends in a consonant or any other vowel except ‘a’. And the female baby names end mostly in ‘a’.
