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.
