Albanian baby names

Albanian baby names consist of a given name; the given name of the individual's father, which is rarely included except in official documents; and a family name or surname.

Traditionally, the Albanian baby names are original Albanian-meaning names, or religious names either Islamic or Christian. During the Communist regime, an Illyrian origin of the Albanians, a theory which has been reinvigorate today, results in a revival of given names and Illyrian names were constructed as appropriate names instead of religious names associated with Christianity or Islam. This trend became more common after 1944, and it became the Socialist government’s policy to heavily discourage religious given names. At present, many modern baby names are Greek, or Italian as Albanians are the largest migrant group in Greece and second largest migrant group in Italy.
