Top 50 Baby Girl Names
Picking A Middle Name
Should you or shouldn’t you pick a middle name for your daughter? The traditional number of names in the United States is three- First name, middle name and either your family’s last name or your last name.
If you pick the non-traditional route. You are not the only one! There are plenty of families that only give their children two names- a first name and the last name. No middle name at all! It is up to you whether you want your daughter to have a 3 name or a 2 name.
If it is important to you that your daughter has a middle name. Think about names that will pair together easily and smoothly. Do you want just a single letter? Do all three or more names flow together? What do the initials look like? This may seem like more to add to your long list of to-dos before your little one arrives. But taking the time to run through these types of questions will help you find the perfect name that you love for your little girl.
Shared Family Names
It is not uncommon to come across kids who have been named after their ancestors or have some family members’ names. Since it is a tradition in many families. How the name-sharing is executed is different within each family.
It is common to have the father or mother’s middle name also be the middle name for their child. Or it may be a favorite family name that has been past down from generation to generation.
Sharing a family name isn’t the only shared name you may consider. Think about other popular or even unpopular names of famous or historical people that you may want to name your daughter after. Are they names that you would like your daughter’s name to be associated with?
If you are leaning towards picking a name that is shared with a famous or historical name. It will probably follow them for the rest of their lives. So make sure you pick a good one!
Not everyone loves unisex names. Personally I love unisex names. However, don’t be surprised if your daughter is mistaken for a boy from time to time based on their name. But there are plenty of amazing unisex names out there. Don’t totally forget about these names because who knows. You may fall in love with a unisex name!
Don’t overstress about picking a name for your daughter. Write down a few names that you love and as you get closer to the arrival of your little one. You will pick a name that you love!
