D9 Girls Names

  1. Ainsley
    • Origin:

      Scottish
    • Meaning:

      "one's own meadow"
    • Description:

      While theoretically unisex, this surname name has been edging up the girls’ names list, perhaps originally as an Ashley substitute. One quality in Ainsley's favor: It's remained steadily popular -- but not TOO popular -- for more than 20 years now, ranking consistently around Number 400. That makes it stylish and familiar without showing up everywhere.
  2. Aletris
    • Origin:

      Flower name, from Greek
    • Meaning:

      "corn grinder"
    • Description:

      The bell-shaped flower Aletris is also known as Colic Root, Blazing Star, Unicorn Root, and Stargrass. Its roots have medicinal properties and are used to aid digestive and muscle problems. Its name derives from Greek aletris — an enslaved woman who ground corn — because of the mealy texture of the flowers.

      Latin
    • Meaning:

  5. Bentley
    • Origin:

      English Surname
    • Meaning:

      "meadow with coarse grass"
    • Description:

      We can't account for the popularity of this name, for either a boy or a girl, given the first syllable, the tacky connotations with a luxury car, and the range of other options which are more harmonious to the ear. Nonetheless, nearly 200 girls were names Bentley in the US in 2015.
  6. Blair

      Scottish
    • Meaning:

      "dweller on the plain"

        "heather field"

Hadley could become this generation's Hailey. Adley, a mashup of Hadley and Addie, has also appeared on the scene.

        English word name
      • Description:

        Harvest has been occasionally used as a name since the eighteenth century, originally as evenly unisex, but in the US data for last year was starting to lean more female, given to 29 girls and 11 boys.
