Lourdes Meaning and Origin

Lourdes is a girl’s name meaning “craggy slope” and is of French origin. Lourdes is a town located in southwestern France, at the foot of the Pyrenees. The town and its fortress were an important stronghold during medieval times. In the late 1800s,  Lourdes became a large Catholic pilgrimage site after a 14-year-old girl had apparitions of the Virgin Mary. Lourdes is a gorgeous place name with connotations of healing and miracles. And what could be more lovely than to be named after a small town in the south of France?
