40 Spanish Girl Names Starting With “C”

40 Spanish Girl Names Starting With “C”

The Spaniards sure know how to craft a name, as evidenced by their monikers’ sky-high popularity around the world. While girl names like Isabella, Mia, and Ava continue to top the charts, there’s plenty to be said for some of their cool and cunning cousins that start with C as well.

First off, there’s Carmen; not only is this the namesake of George Bizet’s opera heroine, but it’s a lovely name that comes from the Hebrew meaning ‘God’s vineyard.’ It’s a perfect name for every aspiring Spanish rose, and hasn’t been popular as a girl’s name in the U.S. since the 1960’–this means your little girl can stand out in a beautiful way.

There’s also Clara and Cassandra, two other lovely Spanish names that roll off the tongue beautifully. Clara is a sweet and simple name deriving from the Latin meaning of ‘bright and clear.’ Cassandra, on the other hand, is a bit more bombastic with its Greek meaning of ‘shining and excelling.’

There’s also Cecilia, a mellifluous moniker used during Roman times to describe a blind girl. The name itself comes from the Latin caecus, which means blind. However, its humble origins have done nothing to stop it from making a splash: it’s reached the top 100 baby name’s list twice now, and currently hovers somewhere around the 500 mark.

Don’t head anywhere just yet–we’ve got a nice long list of other Spanish girl names starting with C right below.
