10 Names That Mean Doll

When we see a particularly beautiful baby, we might say they are doll-like. Sweet and pleasant dispositions may also draw comparisons to being a doll. While there aren’t many names from Western-European cultures that mean “doll,” in other languages, there are beautiful names that will perfectly suit your little doll.

Perhaps the most obvious choice is Doli or Dolie. Forms of this name are found in parts of Africa and in India. It’s taken from the English word doll and used as a girl’s name that evokes the beauty and sweetness of a doll. In Armenian, the simple, musical-sounding name Lala is used for girls and also means doll. In Vietnamese, the feminine name Bê (pronounced “beh”), also carries the meaning, “doll.”

Prathima is another Indian girl name that can mean a doll or statue, along with the idea of beauty and pleasantness. India doesn’t leave boys out either. Bomma is a cute boy’s name from India that means “one of the doll.”

While there are fewer boy’s names that mean doll, you might choose a unisex option for your son. Inungoark is an Inuit name meaning “doll” that can be used for girls or boys.

“Doll” is not one of the more common name meanings, particularly in English or Germanic languages. By choosing a name from Eastern European or Asian cultures that contain this meaning, not only will you be giving your child a name that reflects this meaning, it can also be a way of honoring family heritage.
