Girl C names

  1. Bellamy
    • Origin:

      English and Irish from French
    • Meaning:

      "fine friend"
    • Description:

      Bellamy is emerging as an up-and-coming girls' name, an Irish surname-y riff on the super-popular Bella series of names. While the Bella connection makes Bellamy sound a little trendier and more popular than it really is, we see the name possibly rising through the ranks for both genders in the coming years.
  2. Cady
    • Origin:

      English, diminutive and surname
    • Description:

      Cady is one of those names that sounds popular but is actually rare in this form, given to only a few dozen baby girls in the US last year.
  3. Cailin
    • Origin:

      American variation of Caitlin or Kaylin
    • Description:

      While the Cailin spelling doesn't appear on popularity charts, other forms such as Kaylin and Kaylen do, along with several similar names, from Caitlin to Jalen to Kayla. The result: a name that feels more common than it actually is.
  4. CALACE
    • Calantha
      • Origin:

        Greek
      • Meaning:

        "lovely flower"
      • Description:

    • CALICE
      • CALISSA
        • Calista
          • Origin:

            Greek
          • Meaning:

            "most beautiful"
          • Description:

            Spelled with either one 'l' or two, Calista came to the fore in 1997 when Calista Flockhart hit it big as Ally McBeal. Flockhart, who bears her mother's middle name, didn't just introduce a name, she introduced a whole sensibility. Pretty and delicate, Calista is definitely worthy of consideration, especially for parents with Greek roots.
        • Calixta
          • Origin:

            Greek
          • Meaning:

            "most beautiful"
          • Description:

            Calista Flockhart may have made her variation of this beautiful Greek name familiar to modern Americans, but the even-edgier x version was the name of an earlier feminist heroine: a character in Kate Chopin's The Storm.
        • Callas
          • Description:

            Opera lovers and fans of the great diva might make a more sensitive choice with Maria.

          • Origin:

            Greek diminutive
          • Meaning:

            "beautiful"
          • Description:

            As 90s and early 2000s favorite Allie is starting to fall, Callie is feeling extra fresh. Callie is a nickname name that is currently more popular on its own than any of its longer versions. Callie was popular in the late 1800s when it was in the Top 200 for several years. However the name fell out of favor, eventually falling off the charts for some time. Callie has been rising again since the 70s, and it is now back in the Top 200 once again. In the popular show Grey's Anatomy, doctor Callie Torez's full name is the Greek Calliope.

          • Description:

            Calliope is the name of the muse of epic poetry -- and also the musical instrument on the merry-go-round. Bold and creative, it would not be the easiest name for a girl lacking such qualities. It debuted in the US Top 1000 in 2016. While Americans usually pronounce this name with a long I sound and the emphasis on the second syllables, Greeks pronounce it with the emphasis on the third syllable -- ka-lee-OH-pee.
