Another extremely Catholic name.
Now this is a unique name! Religious or not, I like it.
Very beautiful and Catholic.
Only works in Spanish-speaking countries.

Meaning & History

Variant of Concepción used outside of Spanish speaking countries.
I'm not keen on this name. The meaning sounds strange and the name itself is way too religious. I do like the nickname Conchita, however.
I personally think this name is very pretty. Though, I wouldn't use it myself, because I wouldn't want her to be called "Concha".
Who would want to name their daughter "conception"? Please don't do it. Give your child a good name with a good meaning.
The pronunciation given is incorrect, as others have pointed out. The first syllable should be "kon" (sounds like cone), not "kawn".
The o in the first syllable does not sound like the o in "cone," which is a diphthong, not a pure vowel as in Spanish. It's more like the o in "or" (without the r, if you pronounce it).
It sounds like a hot girl. Latina mothers should name their daughters this.
It makes me think of contraception!
This has got to be one of the worst names out there. Name your kid something else please.
This name was used by a female on the 1930 Censo México (Mexico Census).
In Spanish (standard Spanish) it's pronounced something like kohn-thep-thiohn.
I don't think I would name my daughter this. It sounds weird. Too many jokes.
The pronunciation key here gives a very Anglicized way of saying the name. In Spanish it's said with purer vowels: cone-sayp-see-OWN.
