Girl Names You Never Knew Were in the Top 50
Ever feel like you’ve been through the most popular girl names so many times you know them inside out and back to front? Looking for fresh baby names that feel less worn, but still well-known and easy to love?
Allow us to inspire you with 50 girl names that make the Top 50… just not in the US.
Beyond the American name charts, many other countries publish their baby name rankings. We’ve combed them for the coolest, most beautiful names that are much less popular in the US, from Agnes (Number 3 in Denmark, 17 in Sweden, and 44 in Norway) to Zala (the second most popular girl name in Slovenia).
American children with these names would share them with thousands of girls and women around the world, but not so many closer to home. From names you’ve probably heard of (how is Phoebe still below the Top 200?) to ones you may not (Ula, anyone?), enjoy these alternative Top 50 girl names.
Got a name story to tell? If you'd like to write about your personal experience with your own name, your child's name, names in your family or your culture, we'd love to consider your story for publication on Nameberry. Email us a sentence or two about your idea at firstname.lastname@example.org
