26 Most Beautiful Catalan Girl Names (2023)

Catalonia may be in Spain, but much like the Basque Country and Galacia, Catalonians speak their own language instead of Spanish. The Catalan language resembles Spanish, although its dialect is much closer to ones of French, Italian, and Portuguese. And as a result, these four countries often share many of the same names, albeit spelled a bit differently.

In 2020, Lucia and Martina were some of the most popular girl names in Catalonia. These Latin names mean “light” and “warlike,” respectively. But while Lucia was one of the top trending girl names in America in 2020, Martina didn’t make it into the US top 1,000 and hasn’t for many decades.

Other pretty girl names that have made it into the US top 1,000 are Teresa and Jana. Teresa is a name of Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and Catalan origin meaning “to harvest.” And Jana is a name of Czech and Catalan origin meaning “God is gracious.”

If you’d like to give your daughter a Catalan name that isn’t part of the US top 1,000, however, you may take a liking to names like Adria, Aleixa, and Ivette. Adria is the Catalan version of the Latin name Adrian, which means “man of Adria.” Aleixa is the Catalan version of the name Alexis, which means “defending men.” And Ivette, which means “yew tree,” is the French and Catalan version of Yvette and its masculine variation, Yves.
