I love this style of names because they are beautiful and usually boast an abundance of nickname options 🙂 My daughters are Cordelia and Persephone. I also like Evangeline, Angelina, Anastazia, Isadora and Guinevere…plus many others.

Love that it’s an old name with history, everyone knows it but it’s not common. I have planned on using it but we have 3 boys.
on April 11th, 2017 at 1:05 am
And any “boy” name that is feminized is automatically super girly I feel….like

I would probally use Seraphina or Clementine, but the others are a little to much for me.
on April 11th, 2017 at 2:02 am
Hermione and Angelique.
I don’t think they are names that I would actually use but they sound and look so pretty!

That’s a difficult question. Tbh I don’t really see Scarlet(t) as girly girl, in fact it almost feels tomboyish to me. And Arabella whilst long/elaborate, is more magical and dark than just girly. I guess it’s just subjective haha. But from the list I like/love:
Georgiana (only as George-ee-AH-nuh)
And some longer, girlier favourites:

Personal faves include:
I would use…VIvienne (mn), Seraphina (mn) and Felicity for a daughter!
on April 11th, 2017 at 6:16 am
Arianna, Brielle, Adalynn/Addilyn, and Aliannah are my favourites that I’d use on a daughter!
My other favourites are;
Juliette (MN on our list)
Isabelle (MN on our list)

My favorite frilly name is Isadora. If my son had been a girl he would have been Isadora Jane… now though I’m starting to find it too frilly and almost stuck up sounding. I’m afraid it wouldn’t fit all personality types, so I don’t think I’ll use it if I have a daughter next. But I still think it’s beautiful.

My daughter’s name is Genevieve, which I still absolutely love!! I also really like Seraphina and Evangeline. I don’t know that I could really use Evangeline for a second child though, as it and Genevieve have a similar sound when said aloud together.

Love frilly girl names!
Most of these were on my long list for our DD.

I love long and frilly girl names with much shorter, no-nonsense or masculine nicknames like…
Francesca nn Frankie
Juliette nn Jette
Felicity nn Fliss or Flick
Philippa nn Pippa
Gwendolyn nn Winnie or Gwen
Magnolia nn Maggie
Veronica nn Vero or Ronnie
Theodora nn Teddy or Theo
Dorothea nn Dot or Dottie
Henrietta nn Hattie or Harry
Stefania nn Stevie

My daughter’s name is Louisa and I think it’s pretty and feminine with a bit of a punch.
on April 11th, 2017 at 8:27 am
Our daughters are Elianna Joy, Aaralyn Rayne and Evangeline Juliette
Over the years I’ve also loved Marguerite, Genevieve, Vivienne, Lillian, Esme, Isla, Isabella, Isadora, Anneliese, Dorothea, Theadora, Adrianna, Josephine, Cordelia, Eleanora, Colette and Clarissa (nn Claire).
on April 11th, 2017 at 8:30 am
I like girly names as well as more modern/tomboyish ones, but girly names with all the frills and lots of nn options are my partner’s favorite, so that’s likely what we’ll use. We embrace and celebrate femininity in our family, and firmly believe that it is not mutually exclusive with strength, smarts, or spunk. For a girl, our top choice is Evangeline.
I also like Calliope, Amelia, Lucia, Felicity, Magnolia, Clementine, Aurora/Aurelia, Madeleine, Jessamine, Octavia, Alexandria, Cecily, Ophelia… the list goes on.
I do think it’s funny how girly-girliness is somewhat subjective. For instance, I love names like Josephine and Adele and think they’re very feminine, but I wouldn’t include them here as I don’t find them to be “frilly” or “girly-girl.” Scarlett is also in this category for me, yet you’ve included it when posing they question! 🙂

With girl names in general, the longer and frillier the better. I love: Alexandria, Cassandra, Felicity, Guenevere, Marciana, Natalia, Rosalie, Seraphina, Veronica, and Wilhelmina.
on April 11th, 2017 at 9:39 am
I love long elegant names like Vivienne, but I wouldn’t use it if I had a girl. Maybe something slightly shorter but still pretty like Vienna.
on April 11th, 2017 at 10:11 am
Seraphina was the first name that came to mind, as I see it has with a lot of others! I also like Celestia, Valencia, Annamaria…
I probably wouldn’t use a super-frilly name for my daughter, for the same reason I wouldn’t use a name like Fitzwilliam for my son. It’s just a whole lot of name.
Story characters, on the other hand… 🙂
on April 11th, 2017 at 10:17 am
Miranda. Love its meaning and love all the nicknames it offers. Miri, Mira, and Andie are my faves.
on April 11th, 2017 at 10:52 am
Aside from our daughter’s name (Elise), probably Linnea or Serena.
on April 11th, 2017 at 11:34 am
I love girly girl names, though looking at my list and with the exception of a few, I seem very drawn to feminisations of traditional boys names;
Primrose (daughter’s name)

on April 11th, 2017 at 11:44 am
My favorite ultra feminine baby name is Quintessa.
on April 11th, 2017 at 12:09 pm
I have a Kaylin and Lianna (lee-anna ). I love the names Chloe , Amber , and Hayley . If I have another girl ,it will be between those names . I probably wouldn’t choose Chloe .
on April 11th, 2017 at 12:13 pm
I meant to say probably Would choose Chloe . I also love the names Jessica and francessca , but I don’t think I would use them
on April 11th, 2017 at 12:17 pm
This is definitely my style! Currently on my list:
Calista / Callista
Leonora / Eleonora
on April 11th, 2017 at 1:15 pm
First some names I love but wouldn’t really use because they are too much of a mouthful (syllable & style wise):
Primula nn. Prim (A genus of flower which include Primroses and is Latin for “the first to bloom”)
Next names I would use (Mostly middle name contenders):
And my top 2 favorites and mostly likely future daughters’ names:
Malina & Xandrina
on April 11th, 2017 at 1:18 pm
Cordelia, specifically paired with a last name like Carstairs and a first such as my own. Ie. Emma Cordelia Carstairs
on April 11th, 2017 at 1:26 pm
For me, frilly and beautiful with lots of nn options is the only way to go! My daughters are Adelaide and Evelina and the third will be Seraphine. (If we have a third.)
Also love many of the names mentioned here plus…
on April 11th, 2017 at 2:49 pm
My style usually tends to be short and sweet but I do love a few long ones…
Seraphina (probably nicknamed Phin/Finn)
Hermione (nickname Hero, Hera, Mya)
Viviana (would probably stick to Vivian in real life though)
Katarina (nickname Kat)
Lavender (nickname Liv)
Aurora (getting a bit too common now though)
Elysia (called Elsie)
Matilda (called Tilly)
on April 11th, 2017 at 2:53 pm
My favorite girly-girl names are Ariella, Angelina, Cordelia, Amaris, Adriana, Viviana, and Elise.
on April 11th, 2017 at 3:12 pm
My favorite girls’ names tend towards the shorter side, but I definitely have some long and frilly guilty pleasures!
on April 11th, 2017 at 3:56 pm
Love so many long girly names, I don’t have a particular favorite either.

I would say my style is quite ‘girly girl’
Names I would definitely consider for firsts
Love but probably wouldn’t use: (either due to meanings or because they are to ‘out there ‘ for me)

Girly Girl names are my soft spot!!! My favorite girly girls are:
on April 11th, 2017 at 6:14 pm
My ultimate favorite girly-girl name is Seraphina, which we did use (well, Seraphine) as our second daughter Veronica’s middle name. (I see Veronica showing up a lot in the replies, too! But I don’t really consider Veronica a girly-girl name myself — she’s more striking and elegant than pretty and frilly to me.) Our other daughter Catherine’s middle name is Ophelia, which also fits the bill.
on April 11th, 2017 at 7:42 pm
I love this category of girls name! I defiantly have a soft spot for them, but I dislike when the end in ‘A’ but don’t have to! Most of my favorites have some sort of literary connection for me, some are just names that I find romantic.
I love, in no particular order:
on April 12th, 2017 at 1:45 am
I love super feminine names, including Charlotte, Annabel, Amabel, Emma, Lucy, Lucinda, Catherine, Sarah, Sophie, Sophia, Jessica, Vanessa, Delphine, Delphina, Seraphina, Talula, Rosamund, Rosalind, Elizabeth, Francesca, Victoria, etc.

It’s really interesting to see how subjective this is! I love names that I consider feminine without being frilly, so my daughters are Clementine, Beatrice, and Winifred, with an eye on Marigold, Adelaide, Gemma, Felicity, Juliet, Cordelia, and Cecily for the future. But others are listing some of these or variations as “Frilly”! To me, frilly almost always ends in A, so my favorite frilly name I guess is Cordelia. Araminta is starting to appeal to me as well.
on April 12th, 2017 at 10:25 am
I really love Evangeline, Tallulah, Annavieve, Gabriella, and Estelle. I’m also warming up to Clementine, the more I hear it, the more I fall in love.
on April 12th, 2017 at 8:41 pm
Some I like:
Sonatina (guilty pleasure)
on April 12th, 2017 at 9:31 pm
Novella, Theodora, and Carolina

Theodosia! I also love Philippa, but I think that may be more tomboy-ish rather than girly.
on April 18th, 2017 at 6:02 am
I tend to favour punchier and shorter names, but I have a soft spot for:
on April 21st, 2017 at 4:18 am
Feminine and Beautiful names I love:
Eevie (totally in love with this name, not sure the spelling but a very cute name, first heard it in the movie The Mummy)
Any of these can be a beautiful ballerina or a princess!!! LOVE!
Also saw my name (Elise) being posted by a few people as a feminine name they loved…thanks for the compliment! (:
Hope I didn’t miss any!
