Perfect Names For a Last Child
Are you pregnant with your last child and trying to think of a name that would be fitting for a final child?
I’m currently pregnant with what could be our last so I was looking into this too and fell down a rabbit hole, so I thought I would share what I’ve found in case you’re in the same boat.
A final child brings a sense of peace and closure, your family is complete. It’s a beautiful new chapter in your life. It’s a time of endings but also new beginnings and I was looking for names that reflect all these different types of feelings.
I found a handful of names that mean end, last or final but many of those are quite unique and uncommon and from various cultures and origins (which aren’t popular in the United States according to the Social Security Administration list of top baby names).
So they might not be popular choices which is why I kept searching in order to round out the list a bit further.
To create a more comprehensive and usable list of baby names, I also focused on baby names that mean complete or full, and focus on joy and peace because those are feelings we associate with being complete or finished.
I’ve focused on many kinds of baby names that would be fitting for a last child and not just names that mean last, final, or end since that was a pretty limited selection.
I’ve created an extensive list of baby names fitting for a last child and organized them from A to Z with meanings and origins to help you find just the right one.

Wrapping Up Baby Names for A Lastborn
I hope this list of baby names meaning last, complete, and final has given you some ideas to think about while contemplating baby names for the last time.
A name meaning last, end, or final could signify the end of a journey or the culmination of something, like that feeling of being complete and full of joy.
But remember, it can be about new beginnings too. This journey is still full of firsts, not just lats so celebrate them all.
Whether it’s a name that means “last-born” or “final victory,” choosing a name with a meaningful message can help to shape a child’s identity and give them a sense of purpose as they grow and develop.
That’s why choices that mean ‘bringer of happiness’, ‘pure joy’, or ‘eternal peace’ are just as beautiful.
If you haven’t found just the right name yet, fear not. I’ve got tons more to choose from.
