We would like to thank Lisa (Elisabet) for all of her kind help in compiling this list Swedish names - Thanks Lisa!

Swedish First Names

The Importance of First Names!
We respond to our names throughout our lives. People associate us with our first name, it forms part of our identity. They help to distinguish us from one to another. Other people gain immediate and sometimes totally subconscious views of people, just from hearing a name they can therefore give us a distinct advantage in life, or conversely, a disadvantage! The choice of an Swedish Baby name is, therefore, incredibly important. And those of us who choose a baby's name are taking on a responsible task!

*Our Grateful thanks is extended to Jane Doe for her kind help in compiling this list of Swedish baby names.

The Origins of Swedish baby names 
The origins of Swedish baby names include place names, names related to mythology and history, origins from colours, plants and other types of nature, Fictional origins, historical origins, characteristic and religious origins. We then move on to Swedish baby names which can be classed as Descriptive names, Place names, Speciality names and finally unique (or created names).

Swedish Christian Names 
First names are often referred to as Christian names. Swedish names share similar first names, or Christian names, with other Christian countries. These 'shared' Christian names differ from country to country according to the language and the spellings and pronunciations of Christian names therefore also vary. The church encouraged the use of biblical names from the New Testament and Saint's names. Old Testament names were not commonly used by Christians until the 18th century. The language of origin for Christian names was therefore Latin, Hebrew or Greek.

Swedish Naming Traditions
When naming a Swedish child it was a custom to use a component from both the father and the mother's name for the first born of both sexes. So if the father's name was Bjørnar and the mother's name was Gunnild then the son might be called Gunnar or a daughter might be called Bjørnild.

Swedish Surnames

Origins of Swedish Surnames
The origins of Swedish Baby Names include place names, names related to mythology and history, origins from colours, plants and other types of nature, fictional origins, historical origins, characteristic and religious origins. We then move on to German Baby Names which can be classed as Descriptive names, Place names, Speciality names and finally unique (or created names). 

Swedish Surnames
The Swedish patronymics surnames system used the prefix sen or 'son' (meaning son of) such as Petersen (for son of Peter). Nowegian names were passed down from generation to generation and many members of the same family often shared the same name. Ole is one such popular name. So, if Ole's father was "Hans", he would be "Ole Hansen". And , in turn, "Niels" becomes "Nielssen" or "Nielsson"

What Swedish baby name shall I give to my baby?
Will the Swedish baby name suit my baby? Should it be traditional, unusual, unique, exotic, popular or cool? Will it be suitable throughout all life phases ( "A Name isn't just for a birthday - it's for life!"). Will it be appropriate throughout a full life cycle starting with baby - toddler - school child - teenager - young adults - parents - middle age - retirement and ending with old age. Will it suit a pensioner as well as a baby? Will the schoolchild be teased mercilessly about a name? What will your baby think of your choice?

Help is at hand when making a choice from Swedish baby names!
The various sections included in www. babynames. org. uk accessed via the Site Map will provide answers to all of your questions regarding the choice of first names. And our exclusive Name Evaluator will help you avoid any of the many pitfalls!
