They thought finding a name for their daughter would be a snap! But now they’re struggling to narrow down names that are classic, but not too common, to find the perfect unexpected – but not too out-there! – name for Jonah’s sister.

My husband and I have a son named Jonah and are expecting a daughter in a few months. We thought finding a girl name would be easier!

We are looking for a girl’s name that is not super popular, but not so unusual that it is weird. My husband prefers classic names, but I am drawn to names that I hear less often.

Red Ruby and Scarlett top the list of color names for girls in 2016, but some of these, from icy Alice to loyal True, might be the next wave of rainbow-inspired appellations.

Newest Word Names for Girls

word names for girls

By Abby Sandel

Back in 2007, Thirty Rock’s Cerie told Liz Lemon that she already had baby names picked out. “If it’s a girl, Bookcase, or Sandstorm, or maybe Hat, but that’s more of a boy’s name.”

While Hat and Bookcase remain – thankfully – unused, parents continue to embrace the idea of word names – nouns, adjectives, and even a few verbs – for our children’s names.

This week’s celebrity birth announcements highlight the range of possibilities.
