27 Names That Mean Alone, Lonely, Loner, or Solitude

Babies’ names usually come with a meaning of hope, strength, and joy. So giving your child a name that means alone, lonely, loner, or solitude may seem a little bit peculiar.

Although names that have these kinds of meanings tend to be very unique. So if you’re looking for a unique name you may want to look further than just the meaning behind the name and see if the name itself suits your little one!

Here are some of our favorite names that mean alone, lonely, loner, or solitude. 

Names That Mean Alone

Your baby is beautiful and so choosing a name with such as sad meaning is not really what you were looking to do. But you should also be aware that most of the names that have ‘alone’ in their meaning also have many other meanings that are not so sad.

It’s best to take a good look at the name and more important than the meaning is those that have already bared the name throughout history.

The Final Thought

You may have noticed that throughout history there are far more girls’ names that have their meaning in being alone, lonely, or solitary.

Many of these names are not hitting the top name lists but that does not mean that their solemn meaning should put you off using them.

As we have said many of these names have more than one meaning and they often contradict each other. Personally I would be more concerned with any historical reference that names may have as people are far more likely to associate it with that. 

Would you choose a name that has a negative meaning? Or are these meanings now worthless in the modern world in which we live?
