Vivacious names for baby girls

Baby girl names that start with the letter V are not super common, but they are often strong and quite unique with an edge to them that you don't hear in other names.

V names that go beyond Violet and Victoria

The baby name Violet first peaked in the early 1900s, and is considered a classic name because it was so popular decades ago when our great-grandmothers were having babies. After many years where it did not even appear in the top 1,000, it has enjoyed a recent surge in popularity, and in fact was higher on the popularity chart in 2013 than it was at its first zenith over 100 years ago.

Victoria is another wonderful baby name that is not only totally classic, but has maintained its popularity over the decades — the only time it's been out of the top 200 was in the 1930s. It has a formal and elegant sound to it, but is easily adapted into several ready-made nicknames, such as Tori or Vicki.

Violet and Victoria are such pretty names not only because they are perfectly classic, the strong V at the beginning gives them a modern sound. But if you're looking for an awesome V-name that isn't quite as common, these baby names may be exactly what you're looking for.

Including those two, there are only 12 V names in the top 1,000 for 2013:
