Category: International Baby Names
If you’re looking for baby girl names that are unusual but not weird, international yet familiar, we’ve pulled together this list to suit your style.
You may recognize a handful thanks to their star connections: Ilaria is the name of Alec Baldwin‘s Spanish-born wife, for example, and Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds named their younger daughter Ines just last year. The African-born daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt is named Zahara, and actress Uma Thurman got her name from a Hindu goddess.
Here, 31 baby girl names that are exotic, elegant, and eminently usable.
It’s an international baby naming challenge! Let’s find a boy’s name that wears well in Italian and German, and might have just a hint of Irish, too.
Our daughter’s name is Lidia Isabella. We love the name. Lidia is vintage and not common, works well locally and internationally, is easy to pronounce in multiple languages and it keeps my Italian heritage, as the last name is German. Isabella was my grandmother’s name. It ticks all the boxes.
We are stuck with the boy’s name. It should work in multiple languages.

Long-expected starbaby names

The Bible is filled with challenging appellations from Ahitub to Zephaniah, but there are also other more contemporary sounding names that have been rarely ussed. Very few of those listed below have ever appeared on the Social Security list, and the ones that have just made brief cameos in the distant past–though you will see a few that have already been discovered by our berries.
Here are 15 viable possibilities.
