Loa is a feminine name, born from multiple origins and erupting with meanings for your little one to take inspiration from. In Scandinavian countries, Lóa means "spring bird," referring to the golden plover whose appearance marks the return of spring in Iceland. The debate over whether this bird was the fastest game bird in Europe led to the creation of the famous Guinness World Records books. The name also has powerful religious roots, as it refers to the spirits of Haitian Vodou, coming from the Yoruba word olúwa, meaning "lord" or "god." In Spain, Loa is a family name or nickname coming from the Latin word laudare meaning “to praise.” Mauna Loa, meaning "long mountain" in Hawaiian, is the largest active volcano on the planet. These forces of spirit and nature will match baby's passion as they blaze their trail in life.
