English Names for Girls
English names for girls dominate the popularity lists in the US, the UK, and other English-speaking countries, with Evelyn and Avery ranking among the top names in the US, and Poppy, Evie, and Grace charting in the UK.
English girl names range from the down-to-earth and simple, like Lucy and Ann, to positively aristocratic-sounding, like Georgiana or Araminta. Some English girl names are vintage word names, often drawn from nature, such as Hazel and Lilac.
Along with Evelyn and Avery, other English girls’ names in the US top 100 include Addison, Audrey, Eleanor, Harper, Lillian, Lily, Lucy, Piper, and Scarlett.
Baby girl names popular in England include Amelia – a long time number-one name in the United Kingdom – Isla, Charlotte, and Alice.
English girls’ names may be English-language versions of names rooted in classic Greek, Latin, or Hebrew languages and cultures, such as Dorothy, Eleanor, and Evelyn, or classics that transcend fashion like Harriet, Jane, Madeline, and Pamela.
