113 Latvian girl and boy names for your baby

Although Spanish undoubtedly has thousands of names that are beautiful in both sound and meaning, many families choose to resort to names in other languages, such as French, Italian, Russian, Japanese or German, to name a few.

But in addition to these languages, which are some of the most popular, there are others that also provide beautiful names. One of them is the Latvian language , which is one of the two Baltic languages that are considered the most archaic Indo-European languages spoken today.

Many of these names have their origin in Old German and Russian, so some are variants of popular names in these languages. So if you are looking for an original and different name, we have selected some of the most frequent (and beautiful) Latvian names for boys and girls.
