Turkish baby names

Turkey forms the boundary between Europe and Asia; hence it brings the naming tradition that fuses the influences of both Europe and Asia.

A Turkish baby name consists of a given name which is known as an ad or an isim and a surname which is known as a soyadı or soyisim. The first name i.e an ad may be more than one but there is only one surname i.e. soyadı. Turkish babies’ first names are usually derived from Turkish words that hold specific meanings. In 1934, the Surname Law was introduced and according to this law a Turkish baby was required to adopt an official surname. Married women can carry both their maiden as well as their spouse’s surname. Turkish parents also use the Arabic words like ‘bin’, meaning ‘son of’ and ‘bint’, meaning ‘daughter of’ with the given names of their child.
