Princesa is a girl’s name of Spanish origin that comes from the word princesa, meaning “princess.” While Princesa might seem fitting for any mini-monarch, it was actually a popular name for Spanish Navy ships in the 18th century. Spanish naval officer Juan Francisco de la Bodega y Quadra also commandeered his vessel, La Princesa, in an effort to capture British explorer James Cook in Spanish waters. From ship to shore, your little Princesa is sure to run the show.
