Other Origin(s):Dutch, Native American
Meaning:River people; I don't know; Resolute protector
Pima is a feminine name with Spanish, Native American, and Dutch roots. This name comes from the label that Spanish colonists gave to the Native American group, the Akimel O'odham. With connections to this tribe, this name can translate to “river people,” helping baby build their love for the water and become as strong and fast-paced as the current. Pima may also come from the Oʼodham phrase pi mac, meaning “I don’t know,” which they repeatedly said to Spanish colonists during their first encounters. Pima may also come from the Dutch name Pim, which acts as a short nickname for Willem and means “resolute protector.” Whether you want baby to connect to the water, be honest in any situation, or protect the people they love, the name Pima will make for a memorable choice.
