Hispanic Baby Names

With the growth of the Latino population in the United States, the interest in Hispanic baby names is higher than ever. Recently, for example, writers have raised the topic of whether Latinos are giving their children Hispanic names in greater numbers than previous generations, or whether the trend is toward more Anglicized names, in a nod to assimilation. Certainly the overall picture shows increasing popularity of Hispanic names. The name Maria is now more popular in the United States than the name Mary.

Our list of Hispanic or Latino baby names is compiled from the most popular names of Spanish origin from the United States Social Security Administration’s Popular Baby Names webpage. It is based on the latest data available, from birth registrations in 2005. The names on this list are the top 35 most popular for boys and girls. The number to the right of each name indicates its rank in the Social Security popularity table.

Sometimes, the labels we give to names are less than perfect. The name Isabel, for example, is generally considered the original Spanish variant of the name Elizabeth, while the name Isabella is the more Anglicized version. We have included Isabel in our list. Does this mean that Latinos always choose Isabel over Isabella? Of course not – no more than any group adheres to the accepted norms. So if you feel you see errors either of inclusion or omission, please feel free to contact us. We’re always glad to take a look and check our information. Finally, you’ll find some more Latino names, including less common ones, in this list at HispanicOnline.
