If you’re looking for the perfect name to honor your Mexican culture, you’ve come to the right place. Thanks to Mexico’s rich history and deeply religious roots, most popular names in Mexico are borrowed from Hebrew or Latin names and given a Spanish-flare. That doesn’t mean you can’t name your precious babe-on-the-way in a way that honors your heritage. With 62 indigenous communities and languages officially recognized by the government, there are tons of gorgeous and unique names. Whether you want something to honor your distinctly Mayan ancestry or a currently popular name, the possibilities are (nearly) limitless. Along with pulling some of the more beautiful indigenous names, we also used a few “best of” and “most popular” lists to pull together a hefty list of potential names for your bambino or bambina.
