Filipino Baby Names – A

The Tagalog for the English word “name” is pangalan.

Anong pangalan mo?
What’s your name?

Most Filipinos prefer Spanish and English names for their children. Tagalog names are considered old-fashioned. In recent years, the most popular name for girls has been Althea. A very beautiful native Tagalog name for girls is Amihan (northeast wind).

Aurora is another popular name for girls, perhaps not only because of its meaning (Latin for “dawn”), but also because it’s the name of the first lady of Philippine president Manuel Quezon. In fact, there’s a province named after her!

A unisex Filipino name for both baby girls and baby boys is Angel, often pronounced like the English for girls and the Spanish way for boys.
