The new Nameberry popular baby names list is out, and the results are stunning in terms of the dominance of vowel-starting names, especially for girls.

Eight of the Top 10 girls’ names start with vowels. Of the Top 25 girls’ names, 15 begin with vowels. And of the Top 50, more than half – 28 – start with A, E, I, or O (sorry, Ursula, but no U).

This vowel domination is more pronounced than on the US Popular Baby Names list, where 20 of the Top 50 girls’ names start with vowels.

What are the most popular vowel-starting girls’ names on Nameberry today?

First, let’s look at them by letter. As in overall statistics, A is the most dominant first initial, starting 12 of the top girls’ names. E is next with ten, followed by four for I and two for O.  Here are the 28 top girls’ names alphabetically.

I love certain vowel-starting female names, but there does seem to be overuse. Maybe because vowels sound soft.

Most of my favorites start with consonants: something strong and clear.

I like some of the vowel names, but I also like Victoria and I know two Victorias at my school, and one of them goes by Tori. The other one goes by her name, and well, she’s not wild about the nn Vicky, but it could work as a character name as well as Tori.

My favorite vowels names are Isabelle and Elisabetta. I usually gravitate towards consonant names myself, though!

I like E names (maybe because I have one myself?) Favourites are Esperanza, Elowen, Elspeth, Emeraude, Endellion, and Evanthe.

I also like I names, as they are often a bit quirky and unexpected – e.g. Isolde, Io, Imogen, Iris, Ivalo, Iphigenie, Iluka.
