Bless You! 50 Names That Mean Blessed

Bless You! 50 Names That Mean Blessed

Children are generally seen as a blessing and in most cultures, they are a special gift. As much as new parents feel blessed by the birth of their child, they also wish for their child to be blessed, that they may have good fortune and the favor of all those they meet.

Names often carry the wishes of parents for their child and the names on this list are no exception. The gender-neutral name, Asher, meaning ‘fortunate’ or ‘blessed’ particularly embodies this wish and would be suitable for any child.

Benedict, a Latin boy’s name, comes from the same root as ‘benediction’ (a religious blessing). Alternatively, Bennett is the English variant of Benedict and seems more modern which might be preferable to you.

Also from Latin origins, Beatrice, for a girl, means ‘blessed’ or ‘she who brings happiness.’ This could mean that a girl with this name is blessed to be a blessing to others. In a similar vein, Winifred means ‘blessed peacemaking’ and could also imply that the girl with that name is blessed to bless others.
