Special Considerations

Middle Names

The traditional number of names in the United States is three names—a first name, a middle name, and your family or last name. However, there are many families who have a tradition of two middle names, or no middle name at all. It's up to you how many names your daughter will have, but it's certainly something to consider.

If a middle name (or names) is important to you, think about how the two, three, or more names will pair together. Do the syllables of the names flow together? What do the initials spell out? Taking the time to run through these questions and consider your options will help ensure you find the perfect name for your little one.

Shared Names

Naming a baby for a family member is a tradition a lot of families share, but the execution of sharing names can be very different. In some traditions, it is common to designate the mother's last name into the child's official name as a middle name. In others, it might be about continuing the use of a favorite family name.

Outside of family, think about the popular (or unpopular) famous or historical figures who will share your baby girl's name. Are they individuals you want your daughter to be associated with? For better or worse, the association with a famous person who shares the same name will likely follow your child throughout their lives so take special care to make sure it's a good one!

Gender-Neutral Names

There are plenty of amazing gender-neutral names out there, so don't forget to consider them when coming up with your list of top names for your baby girl.

About This List
