Here’s an idea: Just when it seems like everyone else is into naming their babies the most unique, oddest names they can think up, why not consider a name that is perfectly common — in another country? Ethnic baby names from faraway places like Argentina, Japan, Kenya, and Ireland can be perfectly beautiful and provide just enough razzle dazzle without being over the top. Whether you have roots in one of these countries or just like the idea of paying homage to a different culture, you may flip when you discover some of these incredibly pretty girls’ names.
Isae — means “blessed with merit.”
Would you consider giving your baby a name from a country or culture other than your own?
