What Does Exotic Really Mean Anyway?

The word “exotic” describes the quality of being from a distant, foreign country. So really, whether a name is exotic depends on your perspective!

Generally, parents who find themselves attracted to names not often used in their own culture, or names that sound unusual, will want to look for an exotic name. You also might appreciate a particular culture (calling all francophiles!) or absolutely love the sound of a certain language, like romantic Italian.

A quick note on cultural appropriation: If you want to adopt a name from a culture completely outside of your own, consider whether this is a sensitive choice. Cultural appropriation might be an issue if you love a name from within a marginalized culture that you are not a part of.
