Other Origin(s):French
Meaning:Stone; Peaceful
We think you’ll find that the ideal baby name is just a stone’s throw away! Shante is a feminine name of Indian and Old French origin. Meaning “stone” and “peaceful,” which at first glance seem to be diametrically opposed ideas, this name shows off the duality of what it means to be human. Shante has connections to various classic names, like Shanti or Shantelle, but it offers something distinctly different. With a name like this, baby will be stuck between a rock and a peaceful place—what more could you want? Plus, little Shan can look up to the likes of Shante Broadus, Snoop Dog’s wife, or rapper Roxanne Shante.
