2015 Top 10

Hi everyone! Im new to nameberry but have been a name lover for as long as I can remember. To get started around here I thought I would share my top 10 Girls names (and boys on that forum) since its the start of a new year and my list is pretty much ever-changing! Please share your current favorites, too! Id love to see what everyones naming style is and maybe find some new favorites to add to my list! :slight_smile:

  1. Delta (this name immediately jumped to my top 10 when I heard it last month on little Delta Bell)
  2. Sutton ( I adore the meaning of this one, “from the southern homestead”.)
  3. Rowan
  4. Pearl
  5. Elliott (not a fan of this name for a boy but love it with the double T for a girl)
  6. Willa
  7. Norah
  8. Caroline
  9. Georgia
  10. Eloise

Obviously, I’m a fan of southern and more old-fashioned/classic names. haha

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to the boards - have fun!

[name_f]Delta[/name_f] – I like [name_f]Delta[/name_f] a lot, and for me, it immediately makes me think (Australia singer/songwriter) [name_f]Delta[/name_f] Goodrem, and there are no negative associations for me there at all - she’s pretty great. [name_f]Delta[/name_f] is quirky, yet not overly so and I like it a lot.
[name_u]Sutton[/name_u] – I really don’t like this at all to be honest. I find it very harsh and unappealing, for both genders.
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] – I’m seeing this a lot as a girl’s name, however, I very, very much prefer it on a boy.
[name_f]Pearl[/name_f] – A sweet and classy little gem, and as a first name (rather than a middle where it seems it is usually placed) I think it quite refreshing.
[name_u]Elliott[/name_u] – See [name_u]Rowan[/name_u].
[name_f]Willa[/name_f] – I like [name_f]Willa[/name_f] a lot. She’s sweet yet spunky and simple but not at all bland. Very nice.
[name_f]Norah[/name_f] – A nice, classy little thing that’s getting a lot more attention recently.
[name_f]Caroline[/name_f] – I’m not overly fond of this one due to it’s whiny sound, however, it’s really not a bad name.
[name_f]Georgia[/name_f] – See [name_f]Norah[/name_f].
[name_f]Eloise[/name_f] – [name_f]El[/name_f]- names seem to be on trend lately, though [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] is not overly common, which I like the idea of. It’s like taking the trend and making it your own in a way I suppose. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] is a sweet, gentle and classy little thing.

My top three here would have to be [name_f]Willa[/name_f], [name_f]Delta[/name_f] & [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], with my least favourites being [name_u]Sutton[/name_u], [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u].

As for my own top ten, well, it’s more of a top five right now…

Ooo fun!

  1. [name_f]Flora[/name_f]
  2. [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]
  3. [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]
  4. [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f]
  5. [name_f]Daphne[/name_f]
  6. [name_f]Mireille[/name_f]
  7. [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f]
  8. [name_f]Valentina[/name_f]
  9. [name_f]Esme[/name_f]
  10. [name_f]Primrose[/name_f]

My top 2 haven’t changed in a very long time. [name_f]Clementine[/name_f] is new to my list and is probably only a middle name contender.

I love [name_f]Delta[/name_f]! It’s a very overlooked name with a lot of potential. I’m not a fan of [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] on a girl or [name_u]Sutton[/name_u], but the others are quite nice! My top ten is in my signature.

I quite like [name_f]Pearl[/name_f]! I also really like [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] and [name_u]Elliott[/name_u], but on boys.

  10. ??? “[name_f]Aggie[/name_f]” (I don’t have a definite full-name here, but something with the nickname [name_f]Aggie[/name_f]!)

  10. [name_f]Veronica[/name_f]
  1. [name_f]Delta[/name_f] - it’s sweet
  2. [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] - sounds to masculine to appeal to me
  3. [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - not really a fan
  4. [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] - beautiful
  5. [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] - I really very much dislike it for girls, especially the tt spelling makes it boyish to me ([name_m]Bennett[/name_m], [name_m]Beckett[/name_m], [name_m]Rhett[/name_m], [name_u]Everett[/name_u]), for girls I’d go with [name_f]Eliette[/name_f]
  6. [name_f]Willa[/name_f] -
  7. [name_f]Norah[/name_f] - I prefer [name_f]Nora[/name_f] but I like the sound of both
  8. [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] - great name
  9. [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] - very pretty, [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] & [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] would make a sweet pair
  10. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] - absolutely gorgeous

My personal Top 10:

I love [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] and [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]! I would like [name_f]Delta[/name_f] if it weren’t for all the terrible airline experiences.

My top 10:

I’d never considered [name_f]Delta[/name_f] before, very pretty.

My top ten girls names:

  1. [name_f]Delta[/name_f] - I definitely get southern bell from this name, but I don’t hate it
  2. [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] - I usually don’t like boys names on girls, but this is an exception. I find the name too weak on a boy and think it works slightly better on a girl
  3. [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] - I like this for a boy, but it’s a lovely name
  4. [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] - I’m warming to this
  5. [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] - I really like on a boy rather than a girl
  6. [name_f]Willa[/name_f] - love. This name is so sweet and lovely!
  7. [name_f]Norah[/name_f] - I like this name without the -h ending, but it’s so lovely
  8. [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] - This name is definitely a classic
  9. [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] - gorgeous!!!
  10. [name_f]Eloise[/name_f] - absolutely gorgeous

My top 10:

  1. [name_f]Olive[/name_f]
  2. [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]

  8. [name_u]Romy[/name_u]
  9. [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]
  10. [name_f]Violet[/name_f]

Not in particular order, but:

  1. [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
  2. [name_f]Liliana[/name_f]
  3. [name_f]Emma[/name_f]
  4. [name_f]Alexia[/name_f]

  8. [name_f]Esmeralda[/name_f]
  9. [name_f]Helene[/name_f]
  10. [name_f]Isabella[/name_f]

My top 6 doesn’t change that much. [name_f]Grace[/name_f] the last to hit the list. 7, 8, 9 and 10 change all the time!

I love [name_f]Delta[/name_f] a lot! When I was a young child, [name_f]Delta[/name_f] Goodrem’s music was my favourite so I will always have a soft spot for it. I don’t care for [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] (it’s strictly a boy name in UK) and [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] (just reminds me of the [name_u]London[/name_u] borough and mutton), but the rest are nice.

I don’t have a top 10, but some of my favourites are:


Hello [name_u]Courtney[/name_u], welcome to Nameberry! I am also a [name_u]Courtney[/name_u] now, judging by my avatar. :wink:
I absolutely adore [name_f]Georgia[/name_f] from your list. Such a stylish, gorgeous name and I like nickname [name_m]Geordie[/name_m] a lot.
My top names are in my signature.

Hello, and welcome, Courtney! I am trying to explore more girls’ names, so here goes. I like a lot of everyone’s picks, especially Beatrix.

  1. Elizabeth
  2. Caroline
  3. Grace
  4. Bryony
  5. Rachel
  6. Maggie (Margaret)
  7. Molly
  8. Verity
  9. Violet
  10. Faith

[name_f]Welcome[/name_f] to NameBerry! Have a great time! By the way from your list I think [name_f]Delta[/name_f], [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] and [name_f]Norah[/name_f] are lovely names.

I actually don’t have a Top 10! But here are my current favorite girl names:



Of your list, I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] [name_f]Norah[/name_f] and [name_f]Georgia[/name_f]; I quite like [name_u]Rowan[/name_u], [name_f]Willa[/name_f] and [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]; and the rest aren’t my style. I do have somewhat of a weakness for [name_u]Sutton[/name_u] (I say that because in theory it has nothing in common with my usual style and preferences but for whatever reason it makes me smile).

You may also like [name_f]Tessa[/name_f] ([name_f]Willa[/name_f] often reminds me of [name_f]Tessa[/name_f]).

I don’t have a formal top 10, but these days I’m especially fond of [name_f]Lila[/name_f], [name_f]Maria[/name_f], [name_f]Talia[/name_f], [name_f]Georgia[/name_f], [name_f]Ramona[/name_f], [name_f]Helena[/name_f], [name_f]Cecily[/name_f] and [name_f]Cleo[/name_f] (if I’m thinking about names I’d potentially actually use as first names).

My more guilty pleasure names (names I adore but that I’d save for the middle name spot because I think they’d be hard to wear) include [name_f]Ismene[/name_f] (from the play “[name_f]Antigone[/name_f]”), Psamathe (Greek “goddess of sandy beaches”), [name_f]Pomeline[/name_f], and [name_f]Araminta[/name_f] (just because it’s pretty).

Somewhere in between the really realistic ones and the really tricky ones are [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], [name_f]Amadea[/name_f], [name_f]Niamh[/name_f], [name_f]Cosima[/name_f] and [name_f]Mireille[/name_f].

Hmm…girls’ names are hard for me but let me try to think of my current Top Ten…

  1. [name_f]Caroline[/name_f]
  2. [name_f]Anna[/name_f]
  3. [name_u]Jamie[/name_u]
  4. [name_f]Alessia[/name_f]
  5. [name_f]Emma[/name_f]
  6. [name_f]Georgia[/name_f]
  7. [name_f]Liah[/name_f]
  8. [name_f]Audrey[/name_f]
  9. [name_f]Nora[/name_f]
  10. [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
