Baby Girl Little

  1. Caroline
    • Origin:

      French, feminine variation of Charles
    • Meaning:

      "free man"
    • Description:

      Caroline is a perennial classic, one of the elite group of girls' names that's ALWAYS ranked among the Top 1000 and that's been in the Top 100 since 1994. Elegant yet strong, Caroline calls to mind the Kennedy Camelot years and Princess Caroline of Monaco.
  2. Elizabeth
    • Origin:

      Hebrew
    • Meaning:

      "pledged to God"
    • Description:

      Elizabeth is one of the most popular girls' names of all time, the female equivalent of James or William. Yet Elizabeth has so much going for it—rich history, broad appeal, and timeless style—that no matter how many little girls are named Lizzie, Eliza, and Beth, you can still make Elizabeth your own.
  3. Ellamae
    • Origin:

      Combination of Ella and Mae
    • Description:

      Ellamae was given to a record 80 baby girls in 2021, although the data doesn't record punctuation, so we don't know how many of those will actually go by Ella Mae or Ella-Mae. It's a modern smoosh name with a sweet, old-timey feel.
  4. Embry
    • Origin:

      English surname
    • Meaning:

      "flat-topped hill"
    • Description:

      Though Embry became famous as the name of a boy werewolf in Twilight, we think its Em- beginning and -y ending make it perfectly appropriate for a girl. You might consider it as an alternative to Emma, Emily, or Aubrey. Embry or Embury is an established English surname.
  5. Elsie June
    • Frances Belle
      • Frances Elizabeth
        • Frances June
          • Frances Kay
            • Mayella
              • Origin:

                Compound name, combining May, Mary, Margaret or Maya with Ella
              • Meaning:

                "Maytime fairy; beloved fairy; pearl-like fairy; fairy mother"
              • Description:

                A sunny sounding name, Mayella is a smoosh name with various meanings, depending on which etymological root you follow for May. The name is perhaps most associated with Mayella Ewell in Harper Lee's novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, a character whose loneliness and desperation spark the main plot of the book. This may well put parents off using the name and it is only ever given to a handful of girls every year.
            • Violet
              • Origin:

                English from Latin
              • Meaning:

                "purple"
              • Description:

                Violet is soft and sweet, yet with a vivacious edge.

            • Vivienne
              • Origin:

                French variation of Vivian
              • Meaning:

                "life"
              • Description:

                Vivienne is an elaborated Gallic version of the name Vivian, chosen first by Rosie O'Donnell for her daughter and then catapulted to superstardom when Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie used it for their twin daughter. An adult namesake is the British designer Vivienne Westwood. Rosie O'Donnell also has a daughter named Vivienne, known as Vivi.
