Girl Baby Names: 50 Sweetest Sweet-Spot Names

Girl Baby Names: 50 Sweetest Sweet-Spot Names

by Linda Rosenkrantz

We recently posted a list of fifty boys’ names that we consider to be currently in the sweetest sweet spot—that is, instantly recognizable but not mega-popular—just the kind of fitting in/standing out name that many parents are looking for.  These were all found in the lower regions of the most recent Social Security list.

And now, as promised, it’s the girls’ turn.  Here are the fifty names we think are the best examples—again a mix of vintage treasures, international possibilities, place and nicknames (one of them, Frankie, actually earned a place on both the boy and girl lists).  All 50 of them were given to fewer than 350 baby girls across the country last year!

Here they are!
