Whether you want a fancy name for your son or want to steer clear of fancy names, these are the boy names with a fancy feel today.

  • Fancy Girl Names

    Fancy girl names are names that feel posh, aristocratic, elaborate, elegant -- unique in an upscale way. Many fancy girl names are a whole lotta name. Too much name? That's for you to decide.

  • Fancy, Elegant, Sophisticated Baby Names

    Fancy baby names are those elegant, sophisticated choices that have a posh, upscale feel. Fancy names are those that go beyond the merely long and elaborate. Fancy baby names are rare, precious, almost too dressed-up for everyday use. And true, the modern Antonina might be better known as Toni while Ozymandias would inevitably be called Oz. But perhaps you love the idea of giving your baby an elaborate fancy name on the birth certificate, to keep in reserve in case one ever finds oneself meeting royalty. Here is our complete collection of fancy names for boys and girls, many of them with more down-to-earth short forms.

  • Fashionable Classic Baby Names

    Classic baby names that are also fashionable top today's popularity lists, with fashionable classic girl names Emma, Olivia, Sophia, and Charlotte ranking in the US Top 10, while James, William, and Benjamin make the Top 10 names for boys. Other fashionable classic baby names getting more popular include Adeline, Amelia, and Ella for girls; Henry, Oliver, and Theodore for boys. If your taste runs toward the more unusual, there are those fashionable classic names that don't quite make the Top 100, such as Hope and June for girls, Felix and Orion for boys. Of course, not every classic name is fashionable or vice versa, but these qualify on both counts.

February’s birthstone is amethyst, which might inspire names related to purple hues. Names for a February baby can also include those of saints with feast days in February, or historical figures born during the month. If you are expecting a baby in February, these names are worth your consideration.

  • Feminizations of Male Names

    Feminizations are feminine variations of male names rather than unisex baby names: Alexandra not Alex, Charlotte not Charlie.

Or maybe you simply love the traditional feel of many of these classic baby girl names, which are rooted in tradition.
