101 Unique Baby Girl Names for Your Unique Baby Girl

Harper's a nice name and all, but there will be three of them in your daughter's kindergarten class.

Choosing a baby girl’s name may start out as a fun and joyous project, but it can prove incredibly hard to land on a name that truly feels right. Parents may high-five in agreement that they want a baby girl name that’s unique — or cute or traditional or cool… no matter, they’ll soon be surrounded by dozens of possible names and as many tough questions. It’s hard to see into the future, which is exactly what baby names ask us to do. Will an unusual girl’s name, something that sets her apart as an individual now, sound odd and edgy in a few years? Will the first name sound good with her last name — and with her middle name? Parents going the more traditional route may want to pay tribute to grandma, honor family history, or go for something popular. But popular baby names can carry baggage too (Sarah? I went to college with a Sarah and she was the worst) or can feel generic.

What started out as the best game ever soon becomes a high-stakes parenting decision. So how do you find the right baby girl name? The numbers can help. The Social Security Administration keeps track of the name of every child born in the United States, so we know which names American parents like to use for their kids — and how those preferences change over time. Think you’re the only one considering Harper? Pffft. It’s been one of the most popular baby girl names since 2014. But we’ve done the dirty work for you, digging through decades worth of baby names to find the most beautiful and unique baby girl names. Take a look and choose wisely.

  1. How stir crazy do your kids get on indoor days?
    Not very. They like being inside.
    For a time, they’re content. But they need to be occupied.
    Very. They’re like caged animals.
