150 Unique Baby Girl Names To Adore

Finding the right name for your little one is exciting, but it can also be challenging with so many choices out there – so we’ve done some of the work for you. If you’re looking for a name that’s a little different and rare, check out our list of 150 of the most pretty, unique and unusual baby girl names with their meanings.

Pretty and Unique Baby Girl Names

If you’re looking for a classically pretty name that still stands out in a crowd, one of these unique baby names for girls might be the one:

1. Annalise. This name of German origin is a combination of Anna and a short form of Elisabeth, ‘Lise’. It can also be spelt Anneliese, but the simpler form is more popular in the UK. Whatever form you choose, it’s a simple, pretty, unique name for your baby girl.

2. Bluebell. Although floral names are a popular choice, Bluebell is still a rare option. From the name of the flower, this pretty and unique girls’ name is delicate and underrated.

3. Charmaine. Although the name's exact meaning is unknown, it’s thought that Charmaine could be a combination of the word ‘charm’ and the suffix ‘aine’ from the girls’ name Lorraine. If you happen to be having twins, both of these wonderfully original names could make super twin girl names.

4. Constance. Hailing from the name of the Roman emperor Constans, Constance means ‘constant’ or ‘steadfast’ – great qualities for your little one to have.

5. Genevieve. This uncommon girls’ name dates back to mediaeval times, but its origin is uncertain. It possibly has Gallic, German and Celtic elements. It’s also the name of the patron saint of Paris, and it certainly has a vivacious, continental flavour.

6. Jemima. With the pretty and peaceful meaning of ‘dove’ in Hebrew, this unique biblical baby name was popular amongst the puritans. It also has the sweet namesake Jemima Puddle-Duck from Beatrix Potter’s children’s story.

7. Lorelei. A popular figure in German mythology, Lorelei also refers to a rocky area along the Rhine River. If you’re looking for something a little mystical for your little girl, this could be a great choice.

8. Loveday. If you want to celebrate love and peace in a unique way, this pretty girls’ name means ‘beloved day,’ and was interestingly used in medieval England for a day when people came together to resolve disputes between themselves. It could be perfect for your little peacemaker.

9. Lucinda. This name dates back to the seventeenth century when it started to be used as a variant of Lucy or Lucia (meaning ‘light’). The name features in several works of literature, including Cervantes’ Don Quixote. Will it become a part of your family’s story, too?

10. Priscilla. This is a feminine form of the Roman family name Priscus, meaning ‘ancient’. It appears in the New Testament and was also the name of a Roman empress.

11. Talulla. This melodic-sounding name has Gaelic origins, as a traditional Irish name born by two saints. However, like many names, it may have entered our language from several different sources, including the Native American Choctaw word for ‘leaping waters’.
