If you're looking for a really beautiful name for your baby girl, Korean names offer a wealth of brilliant options. Most Korean names consist of two characters/components — for example, Eun-ji or So-young — but these are considered to be a single unit. Korean names, as seen on this list, have all been transcribed into the Roman alphabet from the Korean characters known as Hanja. Each Hanja character has its own meaning, but there can be multiple hanja that have the same reading.

For example, there are 30 hanja that have the same reading of 'eun' and each will have different meanings depending on the hanja used. So, for the name 'Eun-young', the character (or hanja) used to represent 'Eun' might mean silver, peaceful or calm and the character used to represent 'young' might mean flower petals, shine or spirit — depending on the hanja that is chosen to write the name in Korean.

Our list contains a mix of the two-syllable style names as outlined above, as well as some native Korean words and names derived from Sino-Korean words that are used as given names too. Whether you're looking for a cute, popular or unique Korean name, our list will help you pick the perfect name for your baby girl.
