Baby names for girls

Having a baby girl? Congratulations! Now, it's time to name her. Choosing a baby name feels like such a heavy task -- and it is. Whatever name you choose will be with your baby from birth through many life events, so you want to choose well. Whether you are looking for a unique girl name, popular girl name or exotic girl name we have plenty of ideas to choose from!

Exotic girl name ideas

Are you searching for an exotic baby girl name that isn't popular here in the US? Names from other cultures and languages sound exotic to our English-hearing ears, so look abroad for some wonderful exotic names. Perhaps you have a Laurtaro (Argentina), Zaliki (Egypt) or Gunnar (Iceland) on the way.

To find more exotic names, check out the SheKnows feature on Exotic Baby Names and Meanings.

Celebrity girl name ideas

Celebrities certainly have a knack for choosing some wild names. Apple. Harlow. Coco. Kyd (real original, that one!). If celeb inspired (and ultra-unique) are your thing, then turn to the stars for some of the most creative and whackiest names around.
