American names — List of US names with values ​​


>Origin of American names
American names arouse interest in their diversity, richness of meanings and origins associated with various peoples, religions, linguistic and historical processes. The United States of America is a multifaceted and multinational state, which consists of immigrants from different parts of the world. The Americans of the USA are a nation with a heterogeneous racial composition, and therefore the names in the USA are a motley mixture of the names of people from Europe, Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The core of the American population is made up of descendants of immigrants from Great Britain, Germany, Ireland and other European countries. Not surprisingly, most male and female American names have Celtic, Anglo-Saxon, Scottish and Irish roots. These, for example, include: Aiken, Alan, Robert, William, Aidan, Alana, Arlene, Esford, Marsh, Jesse, Logan, Mildred. The list of American names is international. A prominent place in it is occupied by the names of Jewish (Abigail, Abbott, Amos, Ariel), Spanish (Diego, Louis, Pilar, Alfredo, Anita), German (Albert, Arnold, Henry), Greek (Eleanor, Galena, Altia), French ( Amier, Ansel, Masi) origin.

Some names in America are associated with religion. Among the first colonists arriving here from Europe, there were many people who professed strict Protestantism. They made extensive use of Old Testament names: Sarah, Galeb, Samuel, Benjamin. In the 18th century, the religious name had not yet lost its popularity, but such secular names as Oliver, Molly, Lucy, Alice began to appear. In the 19th century, after the formation of the state, names associated with the names of the states spread — Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, Tennessee. The top American names are supplemented by names given in honor of famous personalities — Washington, Columbus. Numerous migrants brought with them names of common European significance — Sophia, Henry, Clara, Emily, William, Albert. Recently, the descendants of immigrants from Africa and indigenous Indians are trying to revive their own national traditions when choosing a name.

Meaning of American names

American names and their meanings is a rather lengthy topic. Conventionally, all names, given their meaning, can be divided into several groups:

  • names that reflect the character or appearance of a person — Ethan (strong), Cameron (bent nose), Alain (handsome), Kevin (pretty), Amelie (hardworking), Hazy (unpredictable).
  • names associated with the names of animals, plants or natural phenomena — Bruce (forest), Woody (living in the forest), Lionel (lion), Pierce (rock, stone), Leslie (oak grove), Lillian (lily), Marilyn ( maritime).
  • names that mean belonging to a profession — Howard (guard), George (farmer), Wright (carpenter), Hunter (hunter), Brandon (prince), Marlon (little warrior).
  • religious names — Samuel (listening to God), Charity (charity), Mercy (compassion), Hope (hope), Tiffany (manifestation of God).

Such a classification is characteristic of almost all names and is not a feature of the American nomenclature. But some American parents are trying to choose the best, special name for the child, which will not only distinguish him from the crowd, but also predetermine an unusual fate. The most popular American names are not suitable for this, and then such rare names as Alden (old friend), Avonmore (name of a river in Ireland), Ivar (legendary Viking), Orla (golden princess) are used.

Popular American names

As you know, fashion is a capricious lady, including names. Lists of popular names in the United States are constantly changing, and names that were recently «on top of fame» can now be forgotten. For example, in the twentieth century, John and Mary met at every step, and children were often called by the names of Dorothy, Harold, Margaret, Edward, Joseph. In the first decade of the 21st century, popular names in the USA are Liam, William, Noah, Lucas, James, Mason, Emma, ​​Olivia, Charlotte, Mia. Now the most popular names in America are Jackson and Sophia.

  1. Jackson
  2. Liam
  3. Noah
  4. Aiden
  5. Kayden
  6. Grayson
  7. Lucas
  8. Mason

  2. Glen (Valley)
