Until the arrival of the new Millennium, the most common names seem to be recurring names, names that many of you are sure to carry or that one of your relatives has. However, they are still beautiful and recoverable if you want your baby to carry a recognizable name in your family and environment. On our trip to the past today we stopped in the 90's pTo remind you what was then a trend.

Take note of this list with the 10 most popular boy names in the 90s in Spain.

According to data from the National Institute of Statistics (INE), Alejandro, David and Daniel were the most frequent boy names. Although less innovative than girls 'names, boys' names also changed quite a bit during these years. One of the most notable changes is that none of the names so common in previous decades, such as Antonio, Manuel, José or Francisco appear in the top 10. Instead of these, David and Daniel, along with Alejandro and Javier, are some of the most used in those years.

1. David: of Hebrew origin that means “the beloved and dear” or “the chosen one of God”. In the Bible, one of the first times it is shown is giving life to the King of Israel, being one of the few kings chosen by the citizens. He is known for defeating the giant Goliath by throwing a stone at him with his sling and is considered a hero to his people. The celebration of the saint corresponds to the 29th of December.

2. Alexander: Of Greek origin, it comes from ‘alexios’ (“to put away”, “to reject”) and from ‘andros’ (“man”). It means "the one who rejects the man or the adversary" and by extension "defender man", which ended up leading to others as "protective man" or "the great savior". It is a historical name, of a character from Ancient Greece who created an empire and dominated half of Europe (Alexander the Great). Its saints are very varied, since there are 30 people named Alejandro who were canonized.

3. Daniel: It comes from the Hebrew ‘Dan-El’ which means “judge” or “justice”, therefore its translation would be “God is my judge” or “God's justice”. Daniel, son of Jacob and Rachel, is one of the greatest prophets, highly valued in his time for his wisdom, for his gift for interpreting dreams and for his exemplary actions in favor of just causes. His story is famous because he was twice sentenced to die eaten by lions.

4. Javier: Its origin is not very common, and it comes from the Basque language (Euskera) and it means more accepted is “castle”, although others highlight a small variant, “new house”. Its popularization is due to San Francisco Javier, a native of Navarra. His saint is December 3.

5. Sergio: it has no definite origin. Most historians think it comes from the Latin, 'Sergius'. Its origin may be related to the Sergia Tribe, one of the 35 Roman tribes. Sergio means "the protector", "the guardian man", which indicates that the most important thing is to protect what is his and always be close to his loved ones. His saints are celebrated on September 8.

6. Adrien: of Latin origin and variant of Adriano. It comes from ‘Hadrianus’, a Latin word that defines the natural family of Hadria, a town near the Adriatic Sea. Literally it means "the one who comes from the sea" or "the one who has the sea nearby" and also "the boy with dark hair. His saint is March 5.

7. Carlos: It is of German origin and means "free man", although some theorists defend its connection with the Greek ‘gueraléos’ (“old”), defending the meaning of “mature man”, “expert or wise man”. It is a very popular name due to its habitual use in the traditions of the royal houses. His name day is November 4.

8. Pablo: of Latin origin (‘paulus’) that exists since Ancient Rome and was a cognomen of an illustrious Roman ‘gens’ (family) called Gens Emilia. It derives from the adjective ‘paulus’, which means “little” or “man of humility”. Its prevalence in the Christian world is due to the fact that it is related to the apostle Paul or Paul of Tarsus. His birthday is June 29.

9. Álvaro: of Germanic origin, derived from ‘alwar’, where ‘all’ means “everything” and ‘wers’, “prudence; or ‘warja’, which means “defense or protection”. Thus, Álvaro will be “the one who is all prudent” or “the one who is the defender of all”. Its popularity spread in the Middle Ages. His saint is celebrated on February 19.

10. Ivan: It is the Russian and Bulgarian variant to designate Juan. Its origin is Hebrew, from the word ‘Yehohanan’, which means “the one whom Yahweh (God) has compassionate or gracious about”, “man with divine blessing” or “God is merciful”. During the Middle Ages it could not be spread by prohibitions of the Roman Empire, but after the revolution in Russia, it began to spread in society. His saint is commemorated on October 11 or June 24.
