Girl Names Ending in R

Girl names ending in R are rarer and less trendy than boy names with R endings, but there are some wonderful choices with R as a last letter.

The top girl name ending in R is Harper. Along with Harper, other R-ending girl names in the US Top 200 include Eleanor, Skylar, Esther, Parker, and Summer. And of course one of the most popular girls’ names of all time ended with the letter R: Jennifer.

Unique girl names ending in R that we recommend include Aster, Clover, Fifer, Honor, Leonor, Pilar, Sahar, and Winter.

R is a serious ending for a name, most frequently found in occupational names such as Carter and Cooper that are used more often for boys than for girls. But as many of these names become unisex and as more parents want their daughters’ names to have the same gravitas as masculine names, we predict the R ending will become more stylish and popular for girls’ names too.

Here are all the R-ending girl names on Nameberry. The top names below rank among the current US Top 1000 Baby Names and are ordered by popularity. Unique names rank below the Top 1000 and are listed alphabetically.
