Cute Baby Girl Names, Meanings, and Origins

Congratulations, it's a girl!

The moment you’re told your baby is a girl, there’s a rush of things in the parents’ minds. One of those things, will be how to provide for the baby, getting girlie stuff and what not. The other will be what cute, catchy name the baby should have.

Straight up, we all want our babies having cute names. However, before embarking on this daunting search, there are a few considerations that must be made.

First, you may have to consider your family’s tradition in naming baby girls. Some traditions allow for three to four names. The baby would have a first, middle and last name. You would ensure you’re able to give your baby girl a name that blends into the existing family names.

Secondly, you may be inspired to name your baby girl after a public figure. A figure known for negativity might not sit well with you, and no one wants to be associated with evil.

Thirdly, you may want to give your daughter a meaningful name – at least one that has a ‘good' meaning or that sends a message. Without proper research, you might not know what specific names mean.

We have put together a list of popular and cute baby girl names, their meanings and origins to help you have a clear idea of what you intend to name your little cutie.
