Korean baby names are used in North and South Korea. Much like Japanese names, Korean names are written with Chinese Hanja characters which can be pronounced many ways, and have dozens of different meanings. We have done our best to detangle the many meanings in our collection of Korean baby names, and have included many traditional and modern Korean names. Our name detail pages include gender and pronunciation, meaning, popularity info, notable namesakes and pop culture references about each name.
