  1. Miriam
    • Origin:

      Hebrew or Egyptian
    • Meaning:

      "drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved"
    • Description:

      The oldest-known form of Mary, serious and solemn Miriam has been a particular favorite of observant Jewish parents.

  2. Tatum
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "Tate's homestead"
    • Description:

      Tatum is strong, distinctive, energetic, and recommended, especially if your last name is as congenial as O'Neal. The name is now used for both genders, with the balance running about two to one in favor of the girls.
  3. Blossom
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "to bloom"
    • Description:

      Now that parents have picked virtually every name in the garden, from the common Rose to the captivating Zinnia, some are reconsidering the old, more generic names like Flora and Posy and Blossom — which was last in favor in the 1920s and still has a Floradora showgirl aura.
  4. Salem
    • Origin:

      Biblical place-name or Arabic
    • Meaning:

      "safe"
    • Description:

      Salem is a biblical place-name in Canaan, believed to be the same as Jerusalem. Americans may be more familiar with Salem as the name of the Massachusetts town famous for its witch trials in the late 1600s. It's also a popular Arabic name widely-used for both genders.
  5. Maryam
    • Origin:

      Hebrew, Arabic, Iranian
    • Meaning:

      "drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved"

      Arabic variation of Mary
    • Meaning:

      "drop of the sea, bitter, or beloved"

  7. Bloom

  8. Jream
    • Origin:

      Variation of Dream, English word name
    • Description:

      Families with a J-initial sibset may opt to spell Dream this way. While Dream has been climbing up the charts since its' entry in 2017 — attributed to the birth of a Kardashian baby by that name — alternative spelling Jream only just entered the Top 1000 for the first time in 2022.

      Fruit name
    • Description:

      British-born novelist Plum Sykes has taken this rich, fruity name out of the produce section and put it into the baby name basket. It's more appealing than Apple, more presentable than Peaches. The French equivalent, Prune, is very fashionable there but would not fly with English speakers.
  10. Dream

      Word name
    • Description:

      Singular and serene noun name that's been used by a couple of celebs.
  11. Storm

      Irish diminutive of William
    • Meaning:

      "resolute protection"
    • Description:

      Diminutive of Samantha
    • Meaning:

      "told by God"
    • Description:

      Sam as a name standing on its own was given to only 18 girls in 2021, versus over 400 boys. But as a short form it's appealing and down-to-earth for both sexes, and heard far more often: There were over 2500 baby girls named Samantha in the US in one recent year and more than 8500 boys named Samuel, so you will hear the name Sam a lot more often than you might guess judging by the numbers for this short form. Like the wildly popular Charlie, Sam is a nickname that works equally well as a girls' name as a boys'. All forms considered, Sam is still one of the most popular names that start with S.
