Girl Names Starting with P
Girl names starting with P have made a radical shift over the past few generations. Move aside Patricia and Pamela — the new most popular P names for girls in the US include only one traditional pick: Top 30 name Penelope.
Along with Penelope, other P-starting girls’ names in the US Top 200 include the much more modern and androgynous Paisley, Piper, Peyton and Parker.
A little further down the list, uncommon P girl names like Presley, Paige, Phoenix and Paris are fantastic familiar, but not overused, options to consider.
The Brits really love their P names for girls: the Top 300 girl names in England and Wales includes such pretty P-starting picks as Poppy, Phoebe, Pippa, Polly, Penny, Primrose and Pearl. And in Spain and Portugal, traditional P girls’ names like Paula and Pilar remain in the Top 100.
If you prefer your baby names more unique, some rare but beautiful P names for girls that we recommend are Philippa, Paloma, Posy, Priya, Phaedra and Pallas.
