A classical Spanish boy’s name with plenty of panache, Santiago has been wildly fashionable throughout the Spanish-speaking world for centuries. It means “Saint James,” after the Saint James the Great, who is said to have visited and been buried in the Iberian Peninsula. Santiago is now the patron saint of Spain, which could account for the name’s continued popularity. Fiery-sounding and yet flowing easily off the tongue, Santiago is a great choice for baby if you want something timeless yet trendy.
