Around the World in 40 Names – Inspired by It’s a Small World

Many of the top and most popular baby names are very similar around the world. I dove into the baby name lists and looked for international names that have a more ethnic spin on them. Selecting the countries represented in the It’s a Small World ride, I chose names that aren’t usually found in America or on top baby name lists. This is a wonderfully diverse list covering 20 different countries. The names sound great and have nice meanings. Select a name for your baby that truly is unique and special. Why limit yourself to the top baby names in the U.S.? It’s a small world after all!
