Opa is a feminine name with Native American roots to celebrate baby’s dark, spooky side. Coming from the Choctaw language, it translates to “owl,” connecting your little one to a strong, traditionally nocturnal bird that’s rich with symbolism. While the owl can represent wisdom and vigilance, it’s described in Choctaw mythology as an omen of sudden death. If you want baby to adorn a name with a bit more darkness and edge, the name Opa will make for a creative choice.
