Baby Girl Names
If you are expecting a baby, you have a lot to think about. One of the most important decisions you will make at this time is what you want to name your baby. After all, your baby will be stuck with her name for the rest of her life!
When naming a girl, you want to choose a name she will be happy with and one that suits her well. As children grow, their names are something that will identify them, and more so as years go on. Therefore, you need to think about what kind of name you want for your girl… cute and tomboy? Sweet and princess-like? Serious and sensible?
Whatever your tastes may be, our Baby Girl Name section can help you come up with the best name for your little one.
Some parents name their children after someone in their family. If this is the case, they may want to choose a name that begins with the same letter as the family member’s name does. We have articles that list girl’s baby names according to the letter of the alphabet they start with.
Some families might want to name their child a popular name while others would like a more unique one. We also list the most popular girls’ names so you can choose from them…or not!
Many baby names that parents choose for their baby girl seem to be subject to the whims of celebrities and popularity (those famous top ten lists).
For the most part, the top ten names used for naming girls have not been changed all that much for the last few years. Although some of them may have changed their placement on the list they still remain on the list.
When you are choosing a girl’s baby name it is important that the one you choose is one that both you and your partner like. Look at the way it sounds and looks as well as any connotations that may be attached to it. A great question to ask yourself when looking for a name for your baby girl is “Would I like this name if it was mine?”
Also when choosing a name for your daughter select one that has meaning to you. By doing this you are providing your child with a sense of belonging. You may want to select a name that fits your child (if they are dark haired then a name like Melain would be perfect as it means “black” or “dark”). However, if you choose to do this you may well have to wait until they have actually been born.
However, most parents will have chosen their baby’s name prior to its birth and usually, they find that when they see the baby for the first time the name they have chosen fits them perfectly. A great way of ensuring that the name you have chosen for your baby girl is right is by seeing how it sounds and how it looks written out (both fully and with initials). Often by playing around with different names for baby girls parents will find the one that they feel most comfortable with and sounds just right for the baby girl that they are expecting.
Your child’s name is so important. Hopefully, our articles will help you find a name you and your child will be happy with for the rest of her life!
