Top Ten Girls' Names

Using the List to Avoid Certain Names

The list of the top ten names for girls can be used to help parents-to-be eliminate certain names because they are looking for a name that is unique or uncommon. If the name you are considering doesn't appear on the list of the top 10 names for the past 5 years or so, it most likely won't be one of the top ten girls' names for the current year. This is because names usually work their way up (and down) in popularity over several years. Most names will not just suddenly appear in the top 10.
It's also interesting to note that baby names usually follow certain trends. For example, in some years, names that rhyme (such as Cayden, Jayden, and Aidan) are amongst the most popular. In other years, names that have a similar ending (like Kaylee, Hayley, and Ashley) are at the top of the list. So while some names may remain popular for ten years or more, others that were popular a few years ago may not be all that common today.

Final Thoughts

Don't be overwhelmed by the thousands of girl names that are out there. Try to take it in a step-by-step process, beginning with a list of the top ten names. This way, you can start by figuring out whether you want a popular and trendy name, or a name that is unique and uncommon. This list of the top ten girls' names can help give you some ideas for names or help you eliminate others.
No matter which type of name you choose (popular or unique), your daughter's name will be unique to her because of the meaning that you find in that name. No matter how common a name might be, it will have its own unique meaning. So enjoy this part of your journey of having a baby. Your daughter will carry her name's meaning with her for the rest of her life!
