Lovely Lithuanian Names

lithuanianI love learning about names from different cultures and countries. There are many stunning Lithuanian names, here are a few of my favorites!

Elžbieta – Elizabeth is one of my favorite names in just about any language. Elžbieta is a beautiful, Lithuanian form of Elizabeth, meaning “pledged to God”.

Lilija – A Lithuanian and Latvian form of Lily. Lily is a popular and beautiful flower name associated with youth and purity. Lilija has a rich, feminine sound and lends itself to the nickname Lily.

Kotryna – Katherine, like Elizabeth, is a beautiful classic with many variations. Kotryna is a striking Lithuanian form of Katherine, meaning “pure”.

Lėja – The name Leah has been rising. If you like Leah, you might consider the Lithuanian form Lėja, meaning “wearly”.

Many female Lithuanian names end in the letters a, e, or ia.

 

Andrius – Andrius is my personal favorite name from this list. A Lithuanian form of Andrew, meaning “manly”, Andrius is a name used in many countries. I think it would wear well in the U.S.

Matas – I love the look of Matas.  It would fit in well with other male names ending in the letter S that are trending, like Silas and Tobias.  Matas is a Lithuanian form of Matthew, meaning “gift of God”.

Kasparas – A strong and handsome name, Kasparas is Lithuanian form of Jasper, meaning “treasurer”.  Fans of the name Casper might enjoy this grand name.

Mykolas – Mykolas is a cool Lithuanian form of Michael, meaning “who is like God”? Mykolas would be an awesome way to honor a Michael.

Many male Lithuanian names end in the letters as, is, ius, us, or ys.
