120 Thai Baby Names For Boys And Girls


Thailand, the country of sandy beaches, spicy cuisines, and tropical islands, has a heritage, which is a fusion of hospitality, generosity, and spirituality. And the same can be said about their names as well. Thai given names either reflect the nobility, region, or religion the child belongs to. Thai parents also give informal names to their children, which they continue to use until the formal registration of the given name.

For the surname, people of Thailand follow a Western European pattern, in which a given name is followed by the family name. You’ll notice a wide range of diversity in Thai family names as they are required to be unique to the family. The noble descendants take the name of their ancestors for the surname.

Also, there are quite a number of Thai people who change their names pretty frequently, either because of superstition or separation or divorce. The last names are changed less often because they need the permission of the head of the family for it.

So whether you have Thai ancestors or you happen to like Thai cuisine, if you want a Thai name for your baby, take a look at MomJunction's collection below. We’ve covered everything for you.
