Top 100 baby names number 70
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 the number 70s - Mila and Theodore.
There are lots of Slavic names which either begin or end with Mila. Mila is used as a diminutive of these. It comes from the element Мил (mil) which means 'dear' or 'gracious'.
Theodore comes from the Greek name meaning 'God-given' which is formed of the words θεός, (theós) meaning 'God' and δώρον (dōron) meaning 'gift'.
