50 Vietnamese Names for Girls

50 Vietnamese Names for Girls

Choosing a Vietnamese name for your baby girl is a great way to remind her of her roots if one or both parents are Vietnamese. If you’re not Vietnamese, take extra care to understand the meaning and any religious or cultural ties the name might carry if you borrow a name from the culture.

Many Vietnamese girl names are associated with nature. The name Hoa means “like a flower,” and Huong means “pink rose.” These are elegant names that would be perfect if you want your child’s name to appreciate nature.

If you’d prefer your daughter’s name to reflect the type of person she’ll become, consider the name Yen, meaning “woman of peace,” or Linh, “spiritual woman.” The name Thi means “poetic.” Names don’t guarantee specific outcomes, but they can serve as wishes for a bright future.

If you’d prefer a less elegant name for your daughter, consider the name Long, which means “dragon.” Dragons are thought of as fierce and mighty creatures, which are empowering traits to wish for your daughter to have.

If you’re in the United States and want a Vietnamese name that will sound a bit more common in the country, consider the name Kim. This name is versatile and is found in several cultures. Its Vietnamese meaning is “golden,” but it also means “gold” in Korean and “Cyneburg’s field” in Old English.
