Swedish baby names for girls are a combination of old favorites we're familiar with and Nordic beauties that are perfect for parents looking for something a bit different for their little girl.
You'll find several familiar names among these first 50 listed here — these are the top names bestowed upon babies in Sweden in 2015, and it looks like some names that are popular in the U.S. are also popular there. Molly, for example, came in at No. 122 in the U.S. in 2014, and it makes a strong showing in the top 15 in Sweden. Other perennial faves such as Olivia, Emma and Sofia are also tops with Swedish parents.
The names may not be all completely familiar, though. Elsa, of course, is very well known thanks to a little film called Frozen, but how many little girls do you know called Maja or Ebba? These amazing names aren't heard much in American hospital nurseries, which makes them excellent choices if you're hunting for something with a Nordic sound. Nova, Juni and Tuva are other great names to check out, but don't stop there — we're just getting started.
Here are a few more names that have distinct Swedish origins, whether they're Swedish versions of other names or they come from older languages that used to be spoken in the area. These may not occupy the top spots for Swedish parents, but are still amazing choices for moms and dads who may be looking for something a little more unique, or with a Scandinavian flair.
