The Gift That Keeps On Giving: 50 Names That Mean Gift (2023)

Children are such a special addition to our lives. Sure, they may get on our nerves, cause a huge mess, or require us to spend money we could use elsewhere, but most parents wouldn’t change that for anything. If you feel blessed by the gift of your child, you might like to give them a name that reflects how grateful you are to have them in your life.

While you might not be religious, many names meaning ‘gift’ refer to God or a higher being of some kind (a gift must have a giver, after all). As such, many of these names have Hebrew or Biblical origins, like Nathaniel and Jesse. Jesse is usually used as a boy’s name (with the girl’s variation spelled Jessie), but Jesse could work well as a gender-neutral name.

Other names meaning ‘gift from God’ tend to have origins in cultures with a strong religious background like Theodore (Theo for short), from Greek, Gia, an Italian girl’s name, or Dorothy, an English name. Although some of these names are a little old-fashioned, they are coming back into popularity.
