Swedish baby names

Looking for a strong, and at the same time, refined and intellectual name for your baby? Swedish history and culture might provide some great suggestions.

Tacitus, the Roman historian, first described Sweden in a written source.

A country with rich history, from the Vikings and their westwards expeditions to the Swedish Empire of the 17th century, Sweden has lots of inspirations to offer.

Classical or modern, from August Strindberg to Stieg Larsson and Jan Arnald, Swedish literature also may give you some great name ideas.

Fantastic musicians and bands like Abba or The Cardigans, wrote a great many of our favorite pop hits in the past decades.

And if literature and music are not enough for you, just check out some of the most great athlete’s names, such as Björn Borg, Susanna Kallur, Charlotte Kalla, Patrick Sjöberg and more.

One of the top characteristics of Swedish culture is that Swedes are true egalitarians, believing strongly in peoples’ equality. They are also calm, humble and find boasting unacceptable.

If these are some traits you wish your baby to possess, then why not pick a Swedish baby name for them.
