Basque is the ancestral language of the Basque nation, inhabiting the Basque Country, a region between northeastern Spain and southwestern France. Basque’s official name is Euskara and the language is isolated both geographically and in longevity, predating the Roman invasion of Europe. However, because of the Roman invasion, the Basque language adopted a large number of Romance language words, resembling both French and Spanish. Therefore, many Basque baby names have a flowery, almost Latin quality to them, making them sound both pretty and embellished. Enjoy browsing all the name categories here at Baby Name Network.
