50 Exotic Baby Names Starting With “E”

50 Exotic Baby Names Starting With “E”

Sometimes you’ve just got to have a name beginning with a specific letter. Perhaps you’d like your child to have alliteration with your surname or have all the siblings connected by the first letter of their names. Perhaps you’re just going through the entire alphabet letter by letter to make sure you’ve considered all your options. Whatever the reason, this list of ‘E’ names will help you out.

Names beginning with ‘E’ are found all over the world and across time. From the Ancient world, we have the Latin name, Emily, meaning ‘ambitious’ or ‘eager.’ While it has old roots, Emily remains a popular name in modern times. Less popular but still lovely is the Greek name Elaine, meaning ‘shining light.’

For boys’ names, consider Erik, or Eric (with a ‘c’), a Norse name meaning ‘eternal ruler.’ Perfect for a child who you know is going to have the whole household wrapped around his little finger. A more popular option is Ethan, from Hebrew origins, meaning ‘enduring’ or ‘long-lived’. This name would be a great way to reflect your wishes for the long, happy life of your son.

If you are waiting to find out the gender at birth or would prefer a gender-neutral name, Eddie, a British name meaning ‘wealthy protector,’ is a great option. It could be pronounced Eh-dee for a boy (or girl), or Ee-dee for a girl. Either way, you’ve got all your bases covered.
