Stylish girl names never go out of fashion

When she's not writing, Claire Gillespie can most often be found wiping snotty noses, picking up Lego, taking photos of her cat or doing headstands.

These baby girl names deserve serious style points

Stylish baby girl names don't have to be traditional, or even popular. What's in fashion right now might not be in fashion forever, so if it's a stylish name you're after, move away from the top 100 baby name charts and look for a name that's more personal to you. "Style is forever," Ralph Lauren once said — and your baby girl name is, too. So make it a good one.

Be inspired by style icons

Tips for finding a stylish girl name

Sometimes, the perfect stylish name comes from considering something unexpected. Names that are traditionally associated with boys, like Billie, Maxwell and Harper, can be stylish for girls because they have that unexpected twist. You might also want to look at last names as stylish first names for girls, like Kensington or Kennedy.

Whatever your baby name preferences, remember one thing: style is subjective! In the words of Gore Vidal, “style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” So make sure your baby name fits with your own personal style, and you'll never regret your choice.
