Country Girl Names

Country Girl Names

Country girl names summon the image of the open prairies and majestic mountains, of winding backroads and meandering streams. They're traditional yet down-to-earth, the best of American style.

Popular country girl names ranking in the US Top 1000 include Georgia, Savannah, River, Willow, Delilah, and Juniper. Unique country names for girls we love include Kit, Flannery, Pixie, and Indy.

Many nature names qualify as country girl names. These include Daisy, Honey, Clover, Peaches, Birdie, Magnolia, River, and Cat.

Country place names can make perfect names for country girls. Among these we'd place Tennessee, Alaska, Carolina, Montana, Memphis, and Louisiana.

Nicknames are also of course prime country girl names. Contemporary nicknames like Hallie and Addie make good names for country girls, but gently old-fashioned nicknames such as Tillie, Mamie, and Dolly make perfect country girl names too.

If you're looking for country names for your baby girl, this list is a good place to start. You might also want to check out our list of Country Boy Names.
