45 Vietnamese Baby Girl Names With Meanings

Names keep a great significance in every culture, and the Vietnamese names carry a powerful force. In the Vietnamese names, some names sound like poetry like; river (Giang) or ocean (Hai) or shining jade (Nogc Minh). They often tend to translate their names to foreigners so that they can know the meaning of their unique names. Some people also keep their names on musical instruments which hold a high cultural significance like; Moon Lute (Nguyet Cam).

Some people also keep their baby's names born during the American war for e.g., Linh (after Abe Lincoln), Red (for the communists), etc. Nguyen is one of the most common family names. This name is inspired by a Chinese surname and is the Vietnamese transliteration to "Ruan" in "Mandarin" and "Wu" in Chinese. It means a musical instrument which was rooted basically in China; it is a string instrument like a small guitar that is plucked. In English, it is pronounced as "win," it is an "N" sound that you form in your throat like in "sting" with a silent "G." It is used as both as a first name and a surname.

The reason why names carry such a high significance and power is because of the old customs, and the Vietnamese traditions claim that evil spirits tend to steal babies, mainly the good looking ones. Therefore, parents would go to lengths to make their children seem unappealing. They would call their newborns names like "ugly," or "rat" or even "shit" to trick the evil spirits into staying away for them. The Vietnamese names mostly consist of three syllables, but they may also be two or for syllables as well. The first syllable is mainly the family name or surname.
