Names are pretty important in our society. Everything and everyone has a name. In any and every culture, names are pretty significant. They can signify a heritage or a personality trait, especially in Scotland. What were the top Scottish girls names in 2016?
Here’s the latest predictions from the Scottish Government:
One of the first top Scottish girls names in 2016 was Isla, this originates from the name Islay.
Another popular name Alia, means ‘from a resilient place’. That probably is a compliment, once you find out what your name means.
A second name, Allie, was one of the top names as well. It’s actually a ‘pet’ form of the name Aileen. This is more of a nick name, though one can be called Allie as a name itself as well.
Another name is Annabel. This name, especially has been popular since the 12th century! That’s a long time for a name to be popular. This name in particular has English, origins, though.
Those are some of the top names for girls that are Scottish. These obviously aren’t all of them, but more information on other Scottish girls names can be found on our website.
