Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island that is also a United States territory, is the beautiful homeland of 3.3 million American citizens — including lots of beautiful baby boys and girls!

On the island, Spanish is the primary language, and while English is taught as a second language, Puerto Rican baby names clearly show their Hispanic influence. (In fact, the island of Hispaniola — with the countries of Haiti and the Dominican Republic — is a mere 70 miles to the west.)

Long ago, Puerto Rico was populated by the Taíno people, an indigenous culture with a rich South American ancestry, who were all but wiped out by the impact of colonization that began after Christopher Columbus’ arrival in 1492.

Still, some aspects of their remarkable society survive. For example, we can thank the Taino for several everyday words like guava, maize, potato, hammock, tobacco and canoe. They are even responsible for a few words that might work as boy baby names: Indigo and Mahogany — or as names for girls: Indigo (yes, again — it’s a great unisex name) and Savannah.

In addition to what’s on the list below of the hundred most popular names from Puerto Rico in 2017, there are still other names to consider.

For example, for boys, check out a few of the island’s city names — like Aibonito, Añasco, Arecibo, Arroyo, Cataño, Coamo, Comerio, Dorado, Lajas, Manatí, (San) Lorenzo and (San) Sebastián. Having a girl? Think about Carolina, Salinas, Barceloneta, Cidra, Sabana (Grande), (Santa) Isabel and Isabela.

Now, have a look at these two top 100 baby name lists!
