Top 100 baby names number 44
I thought it would be fun to look at the top 100 boys and girls names from last year. I am doing a series on these with their meanings. Enjoy!
Today we have numbers 44 - Lola and Jude.
Lola is short for Dolores, meaning ‘sorrow’. It comes from the Spanish title of the Virgin Mary, María de los Dolores, meaning ‘Mary of Sorrows’.
Jude is a Biblical name and comes from Judas and Judah, from the root יְהוּדָה (Yehudah), probably derived from יָדָה (yadah) which means ‘praise’.
