Haitian baby names

User Rating: / 50

The nation of Haiti, located in the Caribbean on the island of Hispaniola, is home to exotic culture and beautiful scenery as well as a host of gorgeous baby names for your baby girl or baby boy. Colonized by Spain and then by France, the country also has a rich native history. Check out Haitian baby names, like Flore and Gilles, right here, along with their meanings!

Babies in Haiti are often given French names due to the early colonization. Also, names that were made prominent during the Haitian Revolution in the late 18th century are popular as well. It is also very common to include Jean in a boy's name and Marie in a girl's name, including them with a second name, such as Marie Jocelyn or Jean Phillipe. There is also another trend for first names that are last names, such as Wilkenson, and it is also common for parents to create new, unique names for their little ones, often by incorporating both of their names in their child's name!
