85 Luscious L Names for Girls

Lavender, Lettie and Lark

by Linda Rosenkrantz

I can tell you from personal experience that L is a lovely initial for a girl to have. It looks great written in script, it has an appealingly lilting sound, especially with a second L-syllable, and of course it’s the letter of love.

There’s an almost infinite number of great L names for girls– classic names, international names, color names and much more– but we’ve winnowed it down to our pick of 85 of the best.


Are there any you would add?

You’ve included boy’s names on this list and Louisiana appears twice. Cheating!!

Just because Lincoln, Logan and Lionel are more traditionally boys names doesn’t mean they haven’t been and can’t be used for girls. In fact Kristen Bell has a little girl named Lincoln.

Lavender has always been a guilty pleasure of mine since Childhood. Makes me think of the wonderful Character of Ms. Lavender from the Anne of Green Gables series.

Yo wandsworth, it’s 2019. Time to stop being so rigid about the boxes girls are and aren’t allowed to be placed in. Names like Lincoln and Logan are perfectly unisex.

Seriously? Lolita is one of ‘the best’ girls’ names beginning with L? It’s just about the last name I’d ever want to give a daughter, what with the connotations attached to it…

My name is Leili, a unique L name that I really like (rhymes with daily)
