There are plenty of girl names that end in Y on popular baby name lists. In fact, the nation’s eighth most popular baby name in 2015 was Emily, which has enjoyed tons of success over the last hundred years or so — even way back in 1900, it was just outside of the top 100, at 105, and dropped as far as 273 only in the ’60s before catapulting up toward the top. In fact, it was the most popular baby name for girls for 12 years running, falling out of the top spot only in 2008.
More recently, Emily was followed by a couple of other super-popular baby names ending in Y, including Avery in the 16 spot, and then Aubrey looking firm at 21. Still others fill in down the top 100, but don’t worry — there are plenty of others that fit the bill as well.
