A woman named Antonia C. Novello made Latin history by becoming the very first woman and first person of Hispanic heritage to have a Surgeon General appointment, which is the United States Chief Doctor. This happened in the year 1990 and what an accomplishment she made. Antonia is classic and pretty in Latin names for a girl baby.
Another one of the legendary Latin names is that of Loreta Janeta Velazquez, who was bound and determined to join and fight in the big Civil War. She realized the impossibility with her being a female and all , so she found a way around it. Loreta dressed herself up as a man and started going by the name of Henry Buford. She then joined the forces of the Confederacy and fought side by side with the men. Her secret wasn’t discovered until she received a battle injury. Janeta or Loreta would either be great Latin girl names to use and you could tell them the history behind it when they are older too.
The Salsa Queen, also known as Celia Cruz was also a famous and well known one of the Latin names. She was lovely and had a voice that could melt you. She was a very talented Latin singer and dancer in the early 1940’s through the late 1970’s. In the year 1986, she was given The Ellis Island Medal of Honor from the National Ethnic Coalition. Celia was also known as one of the greatest singers the World had known of. So, Celia would be a perfect name for your sweet baby girl, maybe she could be even more talented than her name sake.
Alexis is another one of the Latin names which has risen in popularity over the years. Even those who do not have any Latin heritage sometimes name their baby this. The meaning of Alexis is protector or defender.
