We take a trip back in time to see how the tastes of fathers and mothers have evolved when it comes to baby names. In the The 60s, tradition continues to rule, especially the Catholic one. And it was in this decade that the tendency to choose reached its peak compound names, but despite this, the podium was still occupied by the same three names from previous decades: Antonio (137,734), followed this time by Manuel (114,687), and José (103,746), according to data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE) . The names that fell in popularity compared to previous years were Andrés, Emilio and Santiago.
Next, we rescue the 10 most popular boy names in the 60's, remembering that in most of the times these were combined to respond to the compound names, a trend of the moment.
During the sixties many children they inherited their father's name, almost all of Christian origin. Thus, in this list of the most popular boy names in the 60s, we find the names of a lifetime, those that will never go out of style for many generations to pass.
- Antonio: of probable Greek origin (“the one that blooms”) And unknown meaning, derived from‘ Antonius ’(in Latin), which was interpreted as“ one who faces his adversaries or enemies ”. It is a name that evokes courage, honor and defense of one's own. Antonio is among the most used names in Spanish-speaking countries. His saint is celebrated on June 13.
- Manuel: is of Hebrew origin and means “the God who is among us”. In the Bible Jesus of Nazareth is named in his original form as Emmanuel. In this explanation you can glimpse a person you can lean on when you need it, he is trusted. Fame came when those who came from another religion had to change their first name to get baptized. His name day is celebrated on January 1.
- Jose: Biblical name of Hebrew origin that is Latinized is Ioseph or Iosephus, in the first case it means ‘Yavhé has erased’ and in the second ‘that Yavhé add’. There are many biblical characters who bear this name, as the patriarch Joseph, son of Jacob, and Saint Joseph, the husband of the Virgin Mary, patron of the Catholic Church and putative father of Jesus. The meaning of this name is related to humility and tradition, but also to the good relationship of people. His saint is celebrated on March 19.
- Francisco: comes from Italy and derives from Francesco. Its meaning is quite simple and intuitive: 'the French', in honor of the country of France, whose name comes from the Germanic tribe of the Franks or ‘Franken’ whose meaning is “free men”. His saints are celebrated on October 4 with the celebration of San Francisco de Asís.
- Javier: its origin is Basque and means "new house" or "Castle”. This name was popularized by San Francisco Javier, of which Javier was really the place where he was born, in Navarra. Currently it is still very popular in Spanish-speaking countries. His saint is December 3.
- Luis: its origin is Germanic (‘Hlodowig’), with a religious trajectory in the low French and has derived to Latin towards Ludovico and Ludwig. If we split the name in two, on the one hand we have ‘Hlod’, which means “enlightened or illustrious"; and on the other, ‘wig’, which means “battle or combat”. Therefore it represents the hope of a people and the courage of oneself. His saints are June 21.
- John: comes from the Hebrew (‘yehojanan’). Adapted to Latin as ‘iohannes’ and means “the faithful to God"Or" Merciful God. " It is a name with numerous patterns, such as Saint John the Baptist, who predicted the arrival of the Messiah and baptized Jesus Christ; or Saint John the Evangelist, one of the twelve apostles of Jesus, author of the fourth Gospel, three Epistles and the Apocalypse. His saint is celebrated on June 24.
- Jesus: It comes from the Hebrew, from the word 'Yehosuá' or 'Yeshua'. Its meaning is very explicit: "salvation”. This name divides the Bible into two Testaments and is responsible for the year 0. It represents the son of omnipresence and for many the great savior. There is undoubtedly a lot religious history behind this name, this being the most important for Christians because it is the name of the son of God. His saints are on January 1.
- Miguel: of Hebrew origin which means “where do i find god"Or" who is like him. " It's a bit strange, but 20 centuries ago religion was so imposed on society that many Christian names were formed from outlandish statements and rhetorical questions. It represents fidelity and commitment to a person and its popularity spread thanks to the archangel Michael, the first of all. His name day is celebrated on September 29.
- Rafael: comes from Hebrew and means "God has healed"Or" God's medicine. " It has a biblical origin (where it represents power, strength, intelligence, honor and goodness) since it is also the name by which one of the most important archangels is known, this being the angel who healed the patriarch Tobias , which is why he is the patron saint of the sick and maimed of war. The popularity of this name is due to the brilliant representative of the Renaissance, the Italian painter Rafael Sandio. His saints are celebrated on April 26.
