The Kingdom of Tonga, a Polynesian sovereign state comprising 169 islands, has a unique and interesting naming convention. The baby girl should be named after a female member of the family, and the baby boy must be named after a male member.

Tonga names are small and catchy, and make real sense when you know the meaning behind them. The names can be inspired by nature or circumstances surrounding the growth. Since the majority of the Tongan population is Mormon and Catholic, religion also plays a key role in the naming of the children.
