Do you like to think outside the box? Check out these offbeat baby names for girls.

Uncommon and lovely, they’re the perfect baby names for creative, unique families. When you give your child an offbeat name, you’re ensuring that she’ll stand out from her first days at the hospital to every graduation ceremony. Standing out isn’t for everyone, but it’s a surefire way to make a statement. If you believe that names influence destiny, you’ll know that you’re naming a bold little girl with a bright future.

Offbeat baby girl names

This mix of baby girl names gives you options from nature, mythology, literature and more. Some names, like Landry and Monroe, are offbeat because they are traditionally masculine. Others like Meadow, Karma and December are common words that are rarely used as girl names. We love old-fashioned names like Araminta, Thalia and Ida. Narrow down favorites and check out names from similar categories to find more names with the same theme, such as nature names or music names.

Offbeat baby girl color names

Sure, you’ve heard of girls named Rose, Coral and Violet. But what about more offbeat colors? We’ve collected offbeat baby names based on colors. Grey is common for boys but unusual for girls. Henna, Tangelo and Cyan are common words rarely used for names. We love the bold sound — and color — of Fuchsia. Plus, she’ll never misspell it like the rest of us do.

Tips for offbeat baby girl names

Unusual names are guaranteed to earn you your fair share of raised eyebrows. Before you choose a very unusual baby name, consider how often you want to explain it and how sensitive you are to criticism. If you’re not sold on the idea of an offbeat baby name, trying using one of these unusual names or one from your list of favorites as a middle name paired with a more popular or common first name. A name like Eleanor Midnight sounds slightly less offbeat than Midnight Eleanor, but still very unique.
