Gender: Female Meaning of Natalie: "birthday of the Lord" Origin of Natalie: French variation of Russian Natalia Natalie's Popularity in 2017: #36

The name Natalie is a girl's name of French origin meaning "birthday of the Lord". Natalie is ranked #36 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Cool Winter Baby Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Heaven/Hell/Purgatory Alphabetical Girls".

From the experts:

Natalie -- a Franco-Russian name -- became Americanized years ago, and now a new generation is reviving Natalie to join former canasta partners Sophie and Belle. Though still very popular, it's fallen off a bit from its peak in 2008.

Sometimes given to girls born on Christmas, Natalie was Cameron Diaz's character in Charlie's Angels, and was attached to first Natalie Wood, then Natalie Cole (named for her father), and now Natalie Portman.

Natalie has been a TV regular ranging from the lovable character on the old The Facts of Life, to Monk to the current Orange is the New Black.

She also has musical ties to singers, in addition to Cole--Maines, Imbruglia and Merchant, and to a not too flattering hit song by Bruno Mars.
