Mary, Patricia, Jennifer, Elizabeth and Linda reign supreme as the top five baby names of all time — or rather, over the last 100 years, according to stats from the Social Security Administration. And while you won't find these old favorites on our list, the classics have inspired us to round up dozens of dainty names that would be perfect for a baby girl.
These cute names for little girls range from floral-inspired to old-fashioned — giving new parents looking for the perfect name plenty to choose from.
After all, sugar and spice and everything nice is what little girls are made of! If you want a baby name that is pretty and feminine for your little sweetie, get ready to dive in and make your pick.
If you are still searching for the perfect pretty girl's name, why not consider searching for names straight from the Romance languages? You can use our Advanced Baby Name Search to narrow down your choices to French baby names, Spanish baby names or Italian baby names, for example.
Think about your favorite characters from romance novels or movies for inspiration when searching for a pretty baby name. You can even think of objects you think are pretty and determine if this could be translated into a romantic and unique name.
