113 Ukrainian Baby Names With Meanings

Ukraine, the largest nation in Europe, is a country with more than a thousand years of tradition and history, originating in antiquity. The country is renowned for its beautiful people, delicious food, and unmatched landscape. But that’s not all. The land of fertile agricultural plains and heavy industry has some beautiful and unique baby names in its kitty too.

As per traditional Slavic naming customs, Ukrainian people are supposed to have a tripartite name, which includes a given name, patronymic name, and family name. But the full name is mostly used in the official documents, not in day to day life.

As with most cultures, the given name of a Ukrainian baby is selected by the parents. The first names originate from the two primary sources – Orthodox church tradition, which is of Greek origin and Catholic church tradition, which is of Latin origin. Slavic origin names are also familiar with the Ukrainians. Also, the names have to be gender specific, even though they can be derived from the same roots. For the nicknames, Ukrainians mostly use diminutives of the given names, such as Andy for Andriy and Anna for Anastasiya.

Anastasiya and Oleksander have been the most popular names in Ukraine for ages. But if you want something less common for your child, take a look at MomJunction's list of Ukraine baby boy and girl names below.
