Foreign Baby Names

User Rating: / 142
From Ireland to the Middle East, names from foreign cultures are a meaningful way to honor your heritage or capture the charm of a favorite culture or ethnicity.

Names from foreign origins are not just the latest trend, they are a profound way to give your child a connection to your heritage, culture, or religious affiliation for a lifetime.  In our world of globalization and the easy access across cultural boundaries, an ethnic name is an important part of preserving ones identity and connection to the past.
