While this unique baby name choice isn’t super common (at least not yet), it does have a really cool sound and nickname of Jax that we can’t help but love.  

7. Jaya

One feature of this name is that’s it’s short, which arguably adds to its cuteness. It’s also a great alternative to the popular and similar-sounding name Kaia.

17. Jetta

It’s the perfect blend of cute and strong, which is a good combination for a little girl.

18. Jocasta

If having an uncommon name is something that’s important in choosing the perfect name, Jocasta may be the right choice. It’s currently not ranked in the US’s top 1,000 most popular baby names, so the chances of meeting another Jocasta are low. It can be shortened to Jo for extra cuteness.

Not to be confused with Julie, Jolie is an elegant French word that means “pretty.”

21. Joplyn

Son of Job
Finding a quirky name that we don’t often hear is what parents are striving to find, and Joplyn is one of those names. Yes, it’s unusual, but it’s a name that would make a little girl stand out in the best way.

22. Jordan

Flowing down
When we hear the name Jordan, typically, we think of this for a little boy. But it’s a wonderful gender-neutral name that works for a boy or a girl.

God increases
The name Josephine is a popular one, and it’s been around since the start of the 19th century. It’s one of those names that doesn’t seem to ever go out of style.

Consort of Jupiter
To us, it’s a strong and empowering name perfect for any future heroine.
