111 Popular and Unique Latin Baby Names

Get some ideas for naming your baby with our list of common and uncommon Latin baby names for boys and girls.

Updated April 14, 2024

While many consider the Latin language “dead,” Latin names are alive and well in English-speaking countries. Since over 60% of the English language is Latin, you’ll find that many of your favorite names come from Latin roots.

If you prefer traditional names, like Mary or Paul, a Latin name may be just your style. But some Latin names have a more modern sound, like Ace and Luna.

We’ve rounded up our favorite Latin baby names for boys and girls!

Latin Baby Names for Boys

Many Latin baby boy names are currently at the top of the U.S. baby boy name list, including Oliver, Lucas, and Alexander. You can’t go wrong with these classic and strong Latin boy names.

Some Latin boy names with the classic Roman sound, like the name Roman itself or August, are becoming increasingly popular. Dante and Cassius are lesser-used Latin names with a unique vibe.
