Most Popular Vowel Names for Girls

top baby girl names

by Pamela Redmond Satran

The new Nameberry popular baby names list is out, and the results are stunning in terms of the dominance of vowel-starting names, especially for girls.

Eight of the Top 10 girls’ names start with vowels. Of the Top 25 girls’ names, 15 begin with vowels. And of the Top 50, more than half – 28 – start with A, E, I, or O (sorry, Ursula, but no U).

This vowel domination is more pronounced than on the US Popular Baby Names list, where 20 of the Top 50 girls’ names start with vowels.

What are the most popular vowel-starting girls’ names on Nameberry today?

First, let’s look at them by letter. As in overall statistics, A is the most dominant first initial, starting 12 of the top girls’ names. E is next with ten, followed by four for I and two for O.  Here are the 28 top girls’ names alphabetically.

Lauren writes:

Our two little fellows, Rex, 3, and Leo, 18 months, will have a little sister later this year.

Our Hungarian last name is rather challenging to spell and difficult to pronounce, so we like the idea of keeping her name easy to read and say.

I like shorter, feminine, vintage names like Rose, Polly, and Milly, while my husband seems to lean towards more traditional names like Emily and Elizabeth.

We both love names that can transition easily to cute nicknames like Cece, Coco, and Milly, although this isn’t a must.

Whew! Hope this little girl isn’t as high maintenance as we’re making her name!
