However, with the standardization of cultures, typically Bulgarian first names are becoming rare.


So, if you are looking for a singular and unusual first name, you will necessarily find your happiness in our list of Bulgarian names!

In Bulgaria, a tradition has persisted for centuries: that of giving your child the first name of one of the grandparents. However, this tradition is only present for little boys and, generally, it is the first name of the paternal grandfather that is preferred. On the side of the little girls, the tradition was to give a first name ending with the letter "a" for more charm.
