Girls A through Z!!!

This is a list of my all-time favorite girl names from each letter of the alphabet. I think they are sweet, charming, sassy, and unique all at once!
  1. Atlas
    • Brie
      • Origin:

        French, place-name of cheese-producing region
      • Description:

        Place-name and homonym of Bree, less popular than its enlargement, Brielle.
    • Connolly
      • Origin:

        Irish
      • Meaning:

        "love, friendship"
      • Description:

        Energetic Connelly variation that works better for girls than for boys.
    • Darci
      • Elowen
        • Origin:

          Cornish
        • Meaning:

          "elm"
        • Description:

          A beautiful modern Cornish nature name that is rapidly picking up steam in the States: even spawning variant spellings like Elowyn and Elowynn. In its native region, it wasn't widely used as a name before the twentieth century, when the Cornish language was revived. A (currently) unique member of the fashionble El- family of names, it has a pleasant, evocative sound.
      • Felicity
        • Origin:

          Latin
        • Meaning:

          "good fortune, happy"
        • Description:

          Felicity is as accessible a virtue name as Hope and Faith, but much more feminine -- and dare we say, happier. The hit TV show did a lot to soften and modernize the once buttoned-up image of Felicity, and it got further notice as the red-haired Colonial doll, Felicity Merriman, in the American Girl series. A current bearer is actress Felicity Huffman.
      • Grey
        • Origin:

          Color name
        • Description:

          Grey is the more common spelling in Britain and Australia. This color name has a softness and ambiguity which makes it equally lovely for a boy or a girl.
      • Holland
        • Origin:

          Dutch place name
        • Meaning:

          "wooded land"
        • Description:

          Holland is one of the coolest geographical names, unadorned and elegant, evocative of fine Rembrandt portraits and fields of pink and yellow tulips. It first entered the US Top 1000 in 2014.
      • Isola
        • Origin:

          Celtic variation of Isolde or Italian
        • Meaning:

          "island"
        • Description:

          Isola (named for the Celtic heroine Iseult) was the unusual name of Irish author Oscar Wilde’s younger sister, who died of meningitis at the age of nine. Wilde later dedicated his poem Requiescat to her memory.
      • Jovie
        • Origin:

          Modern invented
        • Meaning:

          "jovial"
        • Description:

          Jovie has a lively and cheerful sound and makes a fresh twist on old (and new) favorites like Jody, Josie, and Jolie. It could be considered a short form of Jovita, Jovena, and Jovana - all feminine forms of Jove, the Roman king of gods - but it could equally work as a stand alone name.
      • Kirsi
        • Origin:

          Hindi, Finnish diminutive of Kirstina and Kirsten

      • Larkin
        • Origin:

          Irish
        • Meaning:

          "rough, fierce"
        • Description:

          While Larkin takes this name from girlish bird to boyish surname, there are actually more female Larkins these days than male, and it's a name that works as well for either gender.
      • Malin
        • Origin:

          Scandinavian diminutive of Magdalene
        • Meaning:

          "high tower or woman of Magdela"

          A multi-cultural name that's in the Norwegian Top 50 and well-used throughout the Scandinavian cultures. Malin has the advantage of being at once simple and unusual.
      • Navy

        • Description:

          When R & B singer Nivea made this highly original choice for her daughter's name, she claimed to have thought of it in terms of the color and not the seagoing armed service. You can look at it either way.
