This accounts for why Spanish baby names are so popular throughout the globe. The spread of the Spanish language began during the days of the Spanish Empire when the zeal to expand the territories of Spain was the number one priority of the State.

The borders of the great empire reached the Philippines, the Caribbean islands, Mexico, central and most parts of South America, and a large portion of what is now known as the western and southern parts of the United States.

Spanish baby names are drawn from different sources, including Literature, history, and religion. Names like Sofia and Sebastian or Martina and Mateo are popular, while Cecilia and Jose or Isabel and Manuel are vintage names and never seem to lose traction.

You may choose to christen your child with a Spanish name to honor your heritage or pass down a family name. But a lot of people give their children Spanish names out of their love for the Spanish culture or a specific name within it.

So, whether you don’t have Spanish origins or aren’t living in a Hispanic country, choosing a Spanish baby name or any other name from a different culture or region doesn’t really matter.

Technically, Portugal and Brazil are not Hispanic countries, and their primary language is Portuguese, not Spanish. However, both languages share several similarities, though they are distinctly different.

Plus, a lot of names in these countries sound just the same as those from Spain and other Hispanic countries. Therefore, our list of baby names includes names that are trendy in Portugal and Brazil as well. Checkout our female Spanish names.
