Parents want to give their daughter a unique name that will represent their importance and individuality. Still, finding a name that no one else has can be like finding a needle in a haystack, don’t worry, we’re here to the rescue. We’ve taken the task to find names for girls that are underused and uncommon, but not too unusual that people consider them to be “out here.” We should note that almost none of these names appear in the US top 1,000, most popular names, so we’re pretty sure no other kid will have them. Without further ado, here are ten baby names for girls that aren’t wildly popular and are up for grabs.
Anneliese is a girl’s name of Dutch and German origin, which is the combination of the names Anna and Liese, meaning: “grace of God.” We think Anneliese is grounded but girly at the same time, it’s an underused name that’s a bit vintage yet dainty and sophisticated.
Audrina is a girl’s name of English origin, which is an elaboration of the name Audrey meaning: “noble strength.” The name Audrey is composed of the elements æðel “noble” and þryð “strength.” Audrina is a beautiful alternative to the currently popular, Audrey. Audie is a super-cute nickname, too.
Blythe is a girl’s name of English origin, meaning: “cheerful, joyous.” The name was once used as a nickname for a cheerful person. Blythe is an unexpected name that’s light, fresh, spunky, and bubbly with a joyous meaning.
Calla is a girl’s name of Greek origin, meaning: “beauty,” it is also the name of a flower called the “calla lily,.” Calla sounds youthful but not cutesy. It’s also got a feminine vibe without being too fussy or flowery.
Carys is a girl’s name of Welsh origin, meaning: “to love.” Carys is a girl’s name that’s already big in UK and Wales but hasn’t yet taken off anywhere else, and we’re in love with the way it sounds when pronounced properly, Kah-RISS. Plus, it’s short and sweet, so no nickname is necessary.
Delphine is a girl’s name of French origin, meaning: “woman from Delphi“, from Latin name Delphinus “of Delphi.” Alternatively, Delphinus comes from ancient Greek delphís, meaning dolphin. Delphine sounds elegant and sophisticated, coupled with its Greek roots, this name has a worldly charm to it.
Élodie is a girl’s name of French origin, meaning: “foreign riches.” The name was first used in honor of a 9th-century Spanish saint. Elodie has such a lovely cadence it rolls right off the tongue, which gives it a buoyant, energizing beauty.
Imogen is a girl’s name of English origin, meaning: “maiden.” The first recorded use of the name Imogen is by Shakespeare for his play Cymbeline. This name is quirky, distinctive, and as British, as can be.
Sabine is a no-frills feminine name that’s classic and pretty, just like the French. It comes from the French and German form of Sabina, meaning: “woman of the Sabine people.”
Taya is a girl’s name of uncertain etymology. According to some sources, the name could be of Japanese origin, meaning “young or valley field.” Although we aren’t exactly sure of its origins, Taya is a sweet girly name that’s not overused, plus it’s cute but simple at the same time.
