If you’re expecting a ‘wee lassie,’ these baby girl names of Scottish origin are for you. Pay tribute to your Scottish roots or just find a name from the verdant isle that suits your little (possibly raven-haired?) girl.
Isla (pronounced EYE-lah, the ‘s’ is silent) is an increasingly popular Scottish name for girls. Makenzie, which means ‘son of Kenneth,’ is another top pick, as is Ainsley or Ansley. There are many more to choose from, including Leslie, Bonnie and Ayleen. If your husband’s name is David, consider honoring him by naming your baby girl Vida, the Scottish feminine version of that name.
