Top 100 baby names number 60

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 60 -  Elizabeth and Luca.  

 Elizabeth (Hebrew) 

 An abundance of vegetables on a market stall.

An abundance of vegetables on a market stall.

This name comes from the Hebrew Elisheva, meaning ‘my God is an oath’ or ‘my God is abundance’, via the New Testament Greek spelling Elisabet. Obviously nowadays the name is strongly associated with European royalty.

 

 Luca (Latin)

 Morning light.

Morning light.

From the Latin name Lucas, which comes from the Latin word lux meaning ‘light’
