The Best Baby Girls Names List You Gonna Love

How To Pick The Perfect Baby Girl Name

LOOK TO YOUR FAMILY TREE

There’s probably a ton of baby-naming help located on the branches of your family tree. Look in your parents’ family records or see if a relative has created an online genealogical registry. You may find a family member’s name that you love and holds special meaning for your relatives. Or just talk to some of your older relatives!

HONOR YOUR CULTURE

Your family’s culture may inspire your baby’s name. Online baby name databases are a good place to find the perfect one that pays homage to your culture. What about Eugenie for a French-inspired baby girl name? Or Rohan for a baby boy of Indian descent?

THINK ABOUT NICKNAMES

Keep in mind that many names have traditional, shortened nicknames associated with it. Regardless of what you and your family call your little one, someone along the way — a teacher, an uncle, a well-intentioned coach — might insist on using the shortened form. Maybe you love the name “Robert,” but hate “Robbie.” It’s very likely that others will refer to him with this common nickname anyway. The same holds true of names with common diminutive versions like William (Billy), Richard (Dick), or Charles (Chuck).

MIDDLE NAMES MATTER

Your child’s middle name may seem like an afterthought, but it’s still important and can be a fun part of choosing a full name! A middle name can act as an alternative to a child’s first name, or can be a great way to use traditional family names.

BE MINDFUL OF INITIALS

Many parents have overlooked the importance of initials until it’s time to have baby gear monogrammed. That’s when they realize their babe’s initials spell “RAT” or “EGG.” Something to keep in mind!

ALWAYS LOOK UP MEANINGS

You may fall in love with a name even more once you learn its origin! For example, the name Aiden is of Irish origin and means “little and firey.” The name Katie is of Greek origin and means “pure.” How adorable would it be to give your child a name with such a beautiful meaning?

DON’T STRESS TOO MUCH

While it’s important, don’t worry too much about choosing a name for your new baby. If you realize you’ve made a mistake after baby arrives, you have options. Use your babe’s middle name or create a cute nickname. Worst case scenario? You can legally have your baby’s name changed to something you like better.
