Other Origin(s):Arabic, Latin
Meaning:Valley or river of the wolf
The Spanish name Lupita builds the cute suffix -ita onto the familiar name Lupe, and comes from the name Guadalupe. With a historic village in southwestern Spain, a river in Texas, and an island in the eastern Caribbean sea, baby has a lot of warmth to feel inspired by. But the built-in vigor for life doesn’t stop there with Lupita as this name is used across the world, including in Portuguese, Catalan and the English language. The name is built up of the Arabic meaning “valley” or “river” and Latin meaning “wolf,” creating the popular translation of “valley or river of the wolf.” Some also believe it links to Aztec, meaning “one from the summit of the rocks” or “one who emerges from the region of light like the eagle from fire.” Nevertheless, a name like Lupita can speak to a certain ferocity you could impart on baby from day one.
