serbian-baby-names-with-meanings

Heartiest congratulations on the birth of your baby. Now that the bun is out of the oven, what do you have in mind for a baby name? Would you go for something traditional or classic? Or pick a completely out of the box name? What if we say you can get the best of both by opting a Serbian name?
Just like in most European countries, Serbian names follow the Western name order, with the surname assigned after the given name. Parents or godparents select the first name at the time of birth of the baby. Serbian first names or given names come from Slavic roots, for instance, Vladimir, Vesna, Radmila, Milan. Biblical and Hebrew names are picked by parents to reflect the Christian faith.
Most Serbian surnames come with the suffix -ić, which can also be transcribed as –ic. This suffix is a Slavic diminutive, originated to create patronymics. For instance, the surname Petrovic means ‘son of Peter’. Other common Serbian suffixes include –ski, -ev, -ov, and –in.
We understand the tribulations parents face while choosing names for their little ones. But you don’t have to fret even a wee bit as MomJunction has compiled a list of Serbian baby boy and girl names with meanings below. Read on!
