95 Vietnamese Baby Names With Meanings

Vietnam, the nation of dragons, doesn’t just boast of scenic mountains, hills, beaches, tropical forests, and delicious cuisine. It also offers beautiful and unusual baby names. Vietnamese baby names are highly positive and uplifting. They may appear similar to the Korean, Japanese, and Chinese names, but that’s not true. The Vietnamese language is tonal, which means the spelling may be same, but the tone is entirely different.

The female Vietnamese names are flowery, feminine, and refer to the mythical creatures or desired attributes of a woman. Vietnamese baby boy names represent the strength of character, morality, and intelligence. In some cases, names are combined to create a unique name.

As for the convention, Vietnamese personal names consist of three parts - family name, middle name, and given name and are used in this order. Children can be referred to by their complete name, the first name, or the hierarchic pronoun. If the family names are too common, the child should be referred to by his or her middle name along with the given name.
