Meaning & Origins



Everyone has name but very few know what their own name means.

Name dictionaries are the quickest way to find out what your name means and which are the origins.

  • Name Meaning is a website which automatically searches dictionary sites so you can quickly compare the results.
  • Behind the Name is a site dedicated to etymology and history of first names.
  • Names Encyclopedia is an open encyclopedia of names where anyone can contribute with meanings and origins of a name.

There are very many “baby names” websites, they are not recommended since most of them contain duplicate information or questionable information.
