Super Strong yet Girly

What names do you consider very strong while maintaining their girlishness? Names along the lines of [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f].

I think you want to go for namesakes. What strong women do you admire?

[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_m]Roosevelt[/name_m]
[name_f]Margaret[/name_f] Sanger
[name_f]Rosa[/name_f] [name_m]Parks[/name_m]
[name_f]Marie[/name_f] Curie
[name_f]Sally[/name_f] Ride
[name_f]Alice[/name_f] [name_u]Walker[/name_u]
[name_f]Maya[/name_f] [name_f]Angelou[/name_f]
[name_f]Gloria[/name_f] Steinem

Names I find feminine but also very strong:

[name_f]Adelaide[/name_f]
[name_f]Bianca[/name_f]
[name_f]Bronwen[/name_f] (or [name_f]Bronwyn[/name_f], if you prefer, but I like the traditional spelling)
[name_f]Jane[/name_f]
[name_f]Jemima[/name_f]
[name_f]Maura[/name_f]
[name_u]Vivian[/name_u]

Those are just a few from the top of my head. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Arabella[/name_f]
[name_f]Jemima[/name_f]
[name_f]Marilla[/name_f]
[name_f]Petra[/name_f]
[name_f]Thalia[/name_f]

Almost any -a ending name.

Though I am not keen on the word girly.

This isn’t for me. It’s for my new little niece who is going to be born on the 27th! Mom likes pricessy, ultra feminine names, but at the same time she feels like this new princess falls more in the [name_f]Leia[/name_f] category if you catch my drift. She feels like this baby is going to be a very determined individual and she wants a princessy name to match that feeling. She likes [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] and [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f], but isn’t 100% sold on either. Any more suggestions?

[name_f]Eliana[/name_f]
[name_f]Anna[/name_f]
[name_f]Lenore[/name_f]
[name_f]Alana[/name_f]
[name_f]Alaina[/name_f]
[name_f]Bethany[/name_f]
[name_f]Lizbeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Monica[/name_f]
[name_f]Amanda[/name_f]
[name_f]Zoey[/name_f]
[name_f]Mia[/name_f]
[name_f]Leandra[/name_f]
[name_f]Leona[/name_f]
[name_f]Mary[/name_f]
[name_f]Bella[/name_f]
[name_f]Mira[/name_f]
[name_f]Erica[/name_f]
[name_f]Acacia[/name_f]
[name_u]Lindsey[/name_u]
[name_f]Vanessa[/name_f]
[name_f]Veronica[/name_f]
[name_f]Victoria[/name_f]
[name_f]Penelope[/name_f]
[name_f]Noa[/name_f]

Alright, another try at a “badass princess” name. :slight_smile:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] (the one on [name_m]Doctor[/name_m] Who is definitely the determined type!)
[name_f]Aviva[/name_f]
[name_f]Bettina[/name_f] (it’s my elder daughter’s name; I’m biased)
[name_f]Carmella[/name_f]
[name_f]Cecily[/name_f]
[name_f]Helena[/name_f]
[name_f]Marina[/name_f]
[name_f]Natasha[/name_f]
[name_f]Renata[/name_f]
[name_f]Rhiannon[/name_f] (it means “divine queen” AND it’s a rock song!)
[name_f]Selena[/name_f]
[name_f]Susannah[/name_f]
[name_f]Yvaine[/name_f] (if she’s seen or read Stardust, especially)

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] that helped at least a little. [name_f]Alexandria[/name_f] and [name_f]Olivia[/name_f] are both a bit mainstream for me; I tried to tone it down. :stuck_out_tongue:

Thank you so much everyone!!! I’ll pass these along! And I giggled at “badass princess” :slight_smile: I was struggling to describe what she wants, but I think you hit the nail on the head with that description.

[name_f]Anastasia[/name_f]
[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] - my top pick for baby #1
[name_f]Annora[/name_f]
[name_f]Althea[/name_f]
[name_f]Annicka[/name_f]
[name_f]Madora[/name_f] (means ruler)
[name_f]Phaedra[/name_f]
[name_f]Anwen[/name_f]/[name_u]Arden[/name_u]
[name_f]Deirdre[/name_f]
Eimyrja
Ephyra -ee-FEER-ah
[name_f]Evadne[/name_f]
[name_m]Kerrigan[/name_m]
[name_u]Vesper[/name_u]

I adore [name_f]Lorelei[/name_f] and [name_f]Adelaide[/name_f] but they don’t strike me as strong, more like cutsey and old.

whoever suggested [name_f]Linnea[/name_f] is on to something.

[name_f]Brunhilde[/name_f] is probably the strongest name for a girl ever invented. Warrior queen of Iceland in das Neibelungen. She throws herself on her lover’s burning corpse/viking boat to die with him. nn [name_f]Hildi[/name_f], [name_f]Heidi[/name_f]

[name_f]Matilda[/name_f], [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] and [name_f]Bridget[/name_f]

[name_f]Helena[/name_f]
[name_f]Rowena[/name_f]
[name_f]Josephine[/name_f]
[name_f]Raya[/name_f]
[name_f]Vivienne[/name_f]/[name_u]Vivian[/name_u]
[name_f]Cecile[/name_f]/[name_f]Cecilia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cressida[/name_f]
[name_f]Sarai[/name_f]
