There are so many incredibly beautiful girl names in every culture. Thailand has some of the most exquisite girl names in the world, in our opinion.
A Thai baby typically has a first name, a nickname and a surname. Most Thai people have a nickname given to them at birth by their parents, and it is common for people to go by their nickname instead of their first names. So it's not uncommon for friends not even to know a person's first name at all and only know their nickname. Traditionally this practice was thought to protect the newborn baby from evil spirits, as using a nickname instead of the child's real name was thought to confuse the spirits and prevent them taking the baby.
Thai girl names are often hyper-feminine with names such as 'angel' 'starlight' and 'sweetheart' being as popular as ever. Common Thai names for baby girls also include baby names inspired by nature. Names that translate to "bountiful forest" and "green sweet" suggest abundance and fertility, and names like "full moon" and "evening star" evoke the poetic beauty of nature and the cosmos.
With magical Thai baby names inspired by flowers, gems and spirituality, there are lots of really pretty Thai names which you might like to use to name your own baby girl. Thai names for girls are growing in popularity at the moment as expectant parents search for beautiful, names that reflect a respect for Thai culture as well as an appreciation of the poetic nature of Thai girl names.
