Top 50 Spiritual Baby Names

User Rating: / 47

You don’t have to be tied to any one religion or religious text in order to give your baby a spiritual name. It’s true that the Bible is one of the most well-stocked resources when it comes to names, but you can give your baby a title with an enduring meaning regardless of its origin. Here is our pick of the top 50 spiritual baby names for your boy or girl.

Spiritual Baby NamesSpirituality is deeply personal and very individual. Your child’s spirituality will take shape over the course of their lifetime, framed by the experiences they have, the choices they make, and how you raise them. Their spirituality will also shift if necessary to accommodate any changing beliefs they may have.

You will find that many spiritual names are best-suited to girls. It would seem, according to the list of the Social Security Administration’s top baby names, that parents are more willing to experiment with girls names. They are more likely to stick to Biblical names or the names of saints for their sons. After all, in the top 10 baby names for boys alone appear the very Biblical Jacob, Michael, Ethan, Joshua, Daniel, Alexander, Anthony, William, Christopher and Matthew.

The following spiritual names are suitable whether you’re Catholic or Jewish, read the Bible or the Torah, are a naturalist or merely spiritual with no ties to any religion. And the fact of the matter is, when you love a name and love it for your child, that’s a generous helping of spirituality infused into the letters of your child’s name right from the start, regardless of its meaning or derivation.
