What are Exotic Female Names?

What makes a name appear exotic for us? Most often, these are names that originate in a language other than your own culture. They are still rare enough to attract attention. After all, many English first names derive from Irish, Latin or Hebrew. Keep in mind that the USA is a country of immigration, so we already know many names from other cultures. Thence, The Cambridge Dictonary defines “exotic” as “unusual and exciting because of coming (or seeming to come) from far away.”

This means that US Americans perceive names as exotic that originate from Arabic, Persian, European, Russian, Indian, East Asian, or African. This includes so incredibly many languages and religions that it is nearly impossible not to find a beautiful exotic female first name for your daughter. For example, there are names like Aaliyah: It’s well known in the US, but it comes from Arabic and means “high” or ” lofty”. Thus, some people will still find it “exotic”. Other names, like Yuna, seem to be English in the first glance. In fact, however, it is a popular Japanese name.
