10 Names that mean LOVE

February is here already – I can’t quite believe it. Still, it means that the evenings are very slowly getting lighter and Spring feels closer than ever. Also, it’ll be Valentine’s Day soon – so love is definitely in the air!
If your baby is due on the 14th then you might want to celebrate that by choosing an appropriate name. Here are 10 names that mean LOVE.

Carys

This name comes from the Welsh verb ‘to love’

Vida

This shortening of the Hebrew Davida, means beloved. It’s also a Spanish name meaning life.
I like the mix of these two meanings.

Freya

Freya

You’ll have noticed that this name doesn’t actually mean love. However, Freya is an Old Norse name of Goddess of Love so I thought she was a good choice.

Imogen

Imogen

Imogen is a charming an impetuous character in Shakespeare’s Cymbeline. It’s thought that the name comes from the Greek inno meaning loved and gen meaning child.

Esme

Esme

I love the name Esme. It comes from the old French verb esmer for to esteem or love.

Obi

Obi

You’ll probably recognise this name from the Star Wars and Obi Wan Kenobi.
It’s actually an African name meaning Heart.

Lev

Lev

Lev is a Hebrew name of Russian origin, meaning Heart or Lion.

Lennan

Lennan

The Irish name Lennan means sweetheart. It’s a lovely name although it would probably be mixed up with Lennon…

Keifer

Keifer

This is the Gaelic version of the name, meaning Cherished.
The German version means Barrel maker, so not quite so connected to love!

Didier

Didier

Didier is the name of an early French Saint. It means desired or beloved. It’s the male counterpart to the female name Desiree
