232 Swedish Baby Names With Meanings

Sweden hasn’t just given IKEA to the world. The land is also home to some of the most beautiful, sweet, and adorable baby names you’ll ever hear. In fact, most of the popular names in America have Swedish variations, albeit with a Scandinavian flair.

In Sweden, a baby is given one or more given names and a surname. Sweden is quite strict when it comes to names. There’s a Swedish naming law that approves the names desired by parents. Parents need to submit a form with the desired name within three months of the birth of the child. The first name will not be approved if it can cause embarrassment to the child in the future or if they are not suitable as first names.

This law was passed in 1982 to prevent the non-aristocratic families from giving their children names reserved for the noble and aristocratic families. The following year, the law was revised a bit to allow men to adopt their wife’s or partner’s name and women to adopt their husband’s name.

Let’s take a look at some of the most famous Swedish names of all time. MomJunction has arranged the names according to their traditional gender usage and meaning to help you pick the perfect Swedish name.
