Widely known for the beautiful multi-colored gem, the name Opal originates from Sanskrit, meaning “precious stone.” This gem carries with it a multi-faceted symbolism, though to represent things such as faithfulness and confidence, that baby can resonate with. Your little one is as special as a shimmering jewel inside and out, and a name like Opal could be a reminder of core values you hope to instill. Encouraging baby to grow up confident, true to those they love, and always knowing their worth are values that will never grow old and could be easily conveyed in just two syllables.
