Earlier today I got all excited when Australia came up in the new Countries Name Game and I felt inspired to do the whole game with Australian Aboriginal Names but took WAY too long researching names and so someone got in before me. But I found SO many GORGEOUS names with beautiful meanings that I had never come across before so I thought I would put all my research to good use and share these names I found, along with a few of my old favourites, with you lovely people! :) Please tell me what you think!

GIRLS

Allira - Clear crystal quartz.

Merindah - Beautiful.

Leumeah - Here I rest!

Marlee - Swan or Elder Tree.

Alinta - Flame!

Arika - Blue Water Lily.

Kalina - Love!

Nyah - This bend of the river.

Talia - Near water.

Lowanna - Girl, Woman, Beauty, or Beautiful Woman.

Kalinda - See!

Kirra - Leaf, Boomerang or To Live.

Maya - House, home.

Merri - From Merri Creek named after Merri Merri which means Very Rocky.

Rianna - Small caterpillar.

Tarni Warra - Tarni-warra is an onomatopoeic word to describe the sound of the surf in the Kaurna language of South Australia. Tarni is therefore taken to mean "surf, wave, breaker".


BOYS

Jarli - Barn Owl.

Monti - Black necked Stork.

Tau - Evening, dusk, twilight.

Warrin - Winter, cold and frosty season.

Jardi - Front, First Born Son or To keep.

Jiemba - Laughing Star!

Tanami - Never die.


Aren't they lovely! <3

Thanks Hannah, yes the meanings are as lovely as other Indigenous culture's meanings which I have loved in the past and I am SO excited to find such BEAUTIFUL names and meanings right here in Australia!! :D For some silly reason I have never extensively explored Aboriginal Names before. Being of German descent I've been too busy falling in love with what is far away to notice what's right under my nose!

Some of my absolute favourites that I will be adding to my Favourites List are:

GIRLS

Allira - Clear crystal quartz.

Merindah - Beautiful.

Kalina - Love!

Talia - Near water.

Maya - House, home.

Merri - From Merri Creek named after Merri Merri which means Very Rocky.

Rianna - Small caterpillar.



BOYS

Jarli - Barn Owl.

Monti - Black necked Stork.

Tau - Evening, dusk, twilight.

Warrin - Winter, cold and frosty season.

Jardi - Front, First Born Son or To keep.

Jiemba - Laughing Star!
