Carmen: baby girl name meaning and popularity


The medieval Spanish form of Carmel, which comes from the Latin word “song,” or “to sing,” this name also means “garden” in Hebrew. And since your child is likely to belt out whatever Disney song is popular at the time 24/7, this might be a fitting choice.


Carmela, Carmelita, Carm.
