Cool Girl Names: Charmed circles
by Sophie Kihm
Baby names travel in packs. Once one cool girl name gets popular, similar ones tend to follow. These names often share sounds, but they can also be connected by a theme such as city names, bird names, or virtue names.
Certain name groups can become emblematic of entire generations. Girls with names ending in -ney (think Courtney, Whitney, Sydney) are easily tagged as Millennials. The generation currently being born will be identifiable by their Ev- and -lani names, as well as their royal word names.
These are some of the cool girl name groups currently on the rise. Each individual name varies in popularity, but as a bunch they are trending among girl names.
Is there one of these clusters that particularly appeals to you? Which one?
