Origin:Swiss
Other Origin(s):Albanian
Meaning:Light
Dritan is a bright and shining boy’s name of Swiss origin, meaning “light.” Derived from the Albanian word _dritë_, it’s also a lovely way to inspire your little one to discover the diversity of their Swiss heritage. During the Yugoslav Wars of the late 20th century—and later the Kosovo War—many Albanians sought Switzerland for refuge, carrying with them their customs, traditions, and languages. Switzerland is a melting pot of many cultures, and hopefully, a name like Dritan will inspire baby to find meaning in them all!
