Baby Names Starting with N
Baby names starting with N are led by Noah, the former top boy name and current king of biblical names. The female version, Noa, is one of the most popular names in its native Israel and is quickly rising up the charts in the US. But it’s actually Nora that holds the title of the top N name for girls. The quiet classic is experiencing a well-deserved revival and is now more popular than ever before.
Along with Nora, other girl names beginning with N in the US Top 300 include Natalie, Nova, Naomi, Nevaeh, and Noelle. Along with Noah, other boy names starting with N in the US Top 300 include Nathan, Nolan, Nicholas, Nathaniel, and Nash.
20th century favorites Nancy and Nadine, Ned and Norman are still in a style limbo, but we think they deserve a fresh look. Some surprisingly underused names with the N initial include the lovely Hawaiian Noelani, unisex word name Navy, and charming vintage Nell.
