The family tradition, the church, or fashion are the main factors that have influenced when deciding the name of the newcomers. For example, during the 1960s the name of Mary triumphed, whether simple or compound, partly for religious reasons.
Next we review the 10 popular girl names from the 60's, which today are perfectly salvageable for our baby.
The 60's marked the definitive popularization of compound names, especially among girls. María del Carmen was the most used, especially in Spain, with a great difference (176,217), followed by Ana María (78,887) and by María Dolores (720,661), according to data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE). Compared to the previous decade, Rosario, Encarnación and Juana disappeared from the top of the ranking.
-Maria del Carmen: both names are of Hebrew origin and form a very popular compound name in Spanish-speaking countries. It means "beloved of god, full of grace "or" garden of God, vineyard of God. " Mary is the name of the mother of Jesus and its use in the western world is very common because it was carried by the Virgin. Carmen refers us to the invocation of Our Lady of Carmen or Virgin of Carmel, venerated by the Carmelites, the hermits who populated Mount Carmel, the scene of the crucifixion. When they abandoned him for the Arab invasion, the Virgin appeared to them and promised become a starfish, which is why she is the patron saint of sailors. Georges Bizet's opera 'Carmen' made this name even more popular. His saint is July 16.
- Ana Maria: Ana comes from Hebrew and means "charity, compassionate, full of grace ”. This name goes back to the Bible. In the Old Testament the name Hannah refers to Samuel's mother. Even in the Christian tradition the mother of the Virgin is known as Ana. When combined with Mary (also Hebrew) it is translated as "blessed by God". His name day is celebrated on July 26.
- Maria Dolores: both are of Hebrew origin. Mary, as we have already pointed out, is translated as “the beloved of God”, while Dolores as “the one who suffers”. And it is that the latter refers to the seven pains that the Virgin Mary suffered from the announcement of the Passion until the death of her son Jesus on the cross, in the middle of Calvary and at his crucifixion. His saint is celebrated on September 15.
- Pillar: Spanish name of Latin origin ‘pila’ whose meaning is “that which is the pillar or support for her own”. It evokes a firm person and sustaining. According to Christianity, the Virgin Mary appeared to the Apostle Santiago on the banks of the Ebro River, in the place where the Basilica del Pilar is today, and asked him to build a sanctuary there. The Virgen del Pilar is the patron saint of Zaragoza, of the Civil Guard and of Hispanidad. His festival is October 12.
- Maria Jose: Mary is the appellation that comes from Hebrew and is obviously related to religion and translates as "the chosen one", "the blessed one". On the other hand, José is a masculine name that has come down to our days also from Hebrew, from the word ‘yôsef’, which means “to add”. Mary is the name of the mother of Jesus and Joseph is the name of the husband of Mary, patron of the Catholic Church and putative father of Jesus. His name day can be celebrated on January 17 or March 19.
- Teresa: Its Greek origin has been proposed (Therasia, a name given to one of the Cyclades islands) whose meaning can be identified with "summer" or with "harvest". Another proposal associates it with the Latin tharasia ("huntress") although this form is also given by Greek ("miraculous"). Teresa evokes the fertility of the earth. It was a very common name in the medieval christian kingdoms and from the 16th century on, the name became much more popular, thanks to the association of the Spanish Carmelite saint Teresa de Jesús. His saint is celebrated on October 15.
- Angels: of Greek origin. It comes from Our Lady of the Angels, a Marian invocation that represents the Virgin Mary as Queen of the Angels. Its meaning refers us to "good, pure, heavenly messenger." His holiday is August 2.
- Isabel: of uncertain origin. It may be derived from the name of the Egyptian goddess Isis, Queen of the gods; or another option would be that it derives from the Hebrew Elisa. An unlikely hypothesis claims that it comes from the Latin "Issis Bella", for the cult of the goddess of fertility. Apparently, the pagan origin of the name was concealed by presenting it as a variant of the Hebrew ‘Elisheva’ which means “oath of God”, “promise of God” or “God is my oath”. It also refers to the combination of the name of the Egyptian goddess Isis and Bel, the main Babylonian god. A more plausible etymological root is its origin from the word ‘Ish-baal’, which means “daughter of Baal”, main deity of the Canaanites. His saint is November 17.
- Rose: It has its origin in Latin and means "woman as beautiful as a rosebush". As expected, it refers to the purest beauty of this species of flower that, on the one hand, emanates a close and pleasant aroma, but on the other, the stem is full of thorns. The saints of Rosa are celebrated on August 23.
- Montserrat: According to tradition, the Virgin of Montserrat, popularly nicknamed ‘la Moreneta’ due to the dark color of the image's face and hands, was discovered in the 9th century. She is venerated in the Benedictine monastery of the same name and is the patron saint of Catalonia. His name day is April 27.
