Meaning: Brownish Plain Near the Mountains Origin: Basque
Meaning of the name Navarra: “Brownish” used to depict the landscape contrast of Navarre in the Basque region of Spain, as opposed to the green Mountainous regions.
Other known meanings include “Plain near the mountains” or “Basque-speaking person”
Referenced from Kingdom of Navarre: There are two proposed etymologies for the name of Navarra/Nafarroa/Naparroa:
nabar(declined absolute singular nabarra): “brownish”, “multicolor”
which would be a contrast with the green mountain lands north of the original County of Navarre. Or:
naba“valley”, “plain”, present across Spain +
herri“people” or “land”
It also has elegant French variation Navarre (nav-AIR) or more masculine variant Navarro (which I personally think would be gorgeous on a girl as well!) This also has sweet nickname options, Navi, Ari, Vara, Nav.
