Characteristics of Nataly
Etymology & Historical Origin - Nataly
Nataly comes from the Latin name Natalia, which means "Christmas Day.” The Latin word “natalis” translates to ‘birthday’ (and in particular, Christ’s birthday, or Christmas day: “natale domini”). Like Natalee, the respelling of Nataly appears to be a modern American invention. This lovely name has Latin roots, but it has been widely adopted within the Western world and particularly in East Europe. Natalya and Natasha are the Russian versions; Nathalie and Natalie are used among the French and Germans. The Italians and Spanish typically use Natalia. Natalie is the most common North American spelling of this Christmas baby, but Americans are also prone to use Nataly and Natalee to differentiate their daughters with more “unique” spellings. Historically, the “Natalie” names were common among babies born on or near Christmas Day. A fourth century saint Adrian of Nicomedia and his wife Natalia are mainly recognized by the Eastern Orthodox Church which is why the Natalia name is more common among Eastern Christians (Russians, Czechs, Hungarians, Croatians, etc). Nataly is more of a made-up spelling distinct to the United States.
Popularity of the Name Nataly
Natalie is a wildly popular girl’s name in America (ranked in 14th place in 2010). The traditional English spelling of Natalie is given to almost 60% of the baby girls out there with some version of this name. Natalia is the second most popular with about 20% share of voice. Interestingly, Nataly is the third most common form of the name (5%), followed closely by Natasha, Natalee, Nathalie, Natalya, Nathaly and Nathalia. The mutated spelling of Nataly first appeared on the female naming charts in 1990 in response to the growing popularity of her more commonly spelled sister Natalie. The name Nataly has somewhat shadowed the overall success of this name, but remains a much less popular spelling. As with any altered spelling of common names, those with the name Nataly are destined to correct everyone throughout her life which can be cumbersome so be sure you’re really committed to this spelling before bestowing it upon your daughter. The Natalie family of names is great –feminine, familiar, strong and confident.
