What are your top 5 girls names?

Looking for some new inspiration! If you could only pick 5 names, what would they be? (You can do FN & MN or just FN).

What would they be if they were for 5 sisters? Is it different than your top 5 list?

I feel like my true top 5 is not cohesive, but these are names I’ve loved for years and never tire of: [name_f]Paloma[/name_f], [name_f]Corinne[/name_f], [name_u]Hilary[/name_u], [name_u]Sloane[/name_u], [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f].

If I were actually naming 5 sisters today, it would probably be similar to my signature but with more family names that my husband has vetoed for actual use: [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] [name_u]Steele[/name_u], [name_f]Daphne[/name_f] Riggs, [name_f]Corrine[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f], [name_f]Annabelle[/name_f] [name_u]Winter[/name_u], and (wildcard) [name_f]Lillian[/name_f] [name_f]Claire[/name_f] ([name_f]Lily[/name_f]-[name_f]Claire[/name_f]).

Top 5:
[name_f]Maeve[/name_f] [name_f]Alaska[/name_f]
[name_u]Rowan[/name_u] [name_f]Elodie[/name_f]
[name_f]Eleni[/name_f] [name_f]Sofia[/name_f]
[name_f]Cleo[/name_f] [name_f]Helena[/name_f]
[name_f]Iris[/name_f] [name_f]Michaela[/name_f]

I think I’d use these 5 as sisters!

Top 5: I think they could be sisters, I’m not having 5 kids though



In that order. I’m not sure what I’d name five actual daughters, though. I’d like to imagine that I’d use my top five, but some of them may be too similar.

List changes all. The. Time. Here’s what I’d pick as of right now, though if I posted again in six hours it might be a slightly different list, haha.

Solace (one of my all-time favorites)

[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] (consistent favorite)

[name_f]Mathilde[/name_f] (typically pretty high on my list)

[name_f]Lavender[/name_f] (always on my list but moves up and down usually as a middle but I love it as first or middle)

[name_f]Nimue[/name_f] (very new to my list, who knows where it’ll end up)

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this introduces some ideas!

(For sisters I have no idea, tbh, but I wouldn’t use all these names as a subset or at least all as first names in the set.)


[name_f]Sarai[/name_f] [name_f]Matilda[/name_f]
[name_f]Una[/name_f] [name_f]Adele[/name_f]
Mabli [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f]
[name_f]Cherith[/name_f] [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]
[name_f]Lois[/name_f] [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f]

Right now mine are:


Others that tend to swap into this list are [name_f]Edie[/name_f], [name_f]Margaux[/name_f], [name_f]Ivy[/name_f], [name_u]Frankie[/name_u] and [name_f]Matilda[/name_f].

My true top five, or names I’ve loved for years without wavering, are [name_f]Lily[/name_f], [name_f]Emmy[/name_f], [name_f]Cecelia[/name_f], Fliss & [name_f]Molly[/name_f]. I’m not sure I’d use any of those as a first name, though. I love them, but in a sort of nostalgic, safe way?

My more day-to-day top five are Eia, [name_m]Elika[/name_m], [name_f]Mieke[/name_f], Mabli & [name_f]Jola[/name_f]-- but when I say day-to-day, I really mean more hour-to-hour.

  • [name_f]Bonnie[/name_f]

  • [name_f]Clementine[/name_f]

  • [name_f]Ada[/name_f]

  • [name_u]Aubrey[/name_u]

  • [name_f]Claudia[/name_f]

It changes all the time for me, but I think that if I could knew I was only going to have five daughters, their names would be:

[name_f]Lucille[/name_f] [name_f]Charlotte[/name_f], sometimes called [name_f]Lucy[/name_f]
[name_f]Winnie[/name_f] [name_f]Rose[/name_f], who goes by her first and middle name
[name_f]Hazel[/name_f] [name_f]Cornelia[/name_f]
[name_f]Snow[/name_f] [name_f]Elizabeth[/name_f]
[name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Sunday[/name_f]

[name_f]Lucille[/name_f], [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Winnie[/name_f], [name_f]Stella[/name_f], and [name_f]Snow[/name_f]. :slight_smile:

My top 5 girl names:

I think my top five are:
[name_f]Estelle[/name_f], [name_f]Alexandra[/name_f] nn [name_u]Alex[/name_u] or [name_u]Lexi[/name_u], [name_f]Anais[/name_f], [name_f]Lucille[/name_f], and [name_u]Vivian[/name_u]

My top five are [name_f]Luna[/name_f] [name_f]Florence[/name_f], [name_f]Briar[/name_f] [name_f]Daveena[/name_f], [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] ([name_f]Fifi[/name_f]) [name_u]June[/name_u], [name_f]Willow[/name_f] [name_f]Katherine[/name_f] and [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] [name_f]Hermione[/name_f], but I wouldn’t necessarily use them all as sisters. [name_f]Luna[/name_f], [name_f]Briar[/name_f] and [name_f]Willow[/name_f] could work, but [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] have different vibes to me. [name_f]Ophelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] are probably too close for sisters as well.

My top 5:

Lets see…

My top two favorite girl names are what I named my cat & dog: [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] & [name_f]Fiona[/name_f]. Those weren’t even necessarily my favorite names, but they’re the names that fit when I met them. And now they’re my favorites, because I love the owners of the names.

Other than [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] & [name_f]Fiona[/name_f], my top five are:


[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] maybe nn [name_f]Nellie[/name_f]

[name_f]Gerty[/name_f]-I am trying to come to term w/loving this as a full name, because I just don’t love anything that it’s a nn for.


[name_f]Lilia[/name_f] maybe nn [name_f]Lili[/name_f]

And if I realistically had five daughters, that’s hard! Boys are way easier. I can’t use [name_f]Lilia[/name_f], because it’s my mom’s cat’s name. That may be weird. It would possibly drive me nuts if two kids had the same first initial, so I couldn’t use [name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] & [name_f]Gerty[/name_f]. That all being said, maybe…

[name_f]Guinevere[/name_f] [name_f]Daisy[/name_f] (An ‘D’ mn to honor my dad, [name_m]David[/name_m].)

[name_f]Eleanor[/name_f] [name_f]Aviva[/name_f] (An ‘A’ mn to honor grandpa, [name_m]Albert[/name_m].)

[name_f]Clementine[/name_f] [name_f]Beatrice[/name_f] ([name_f]Fiona[/name_f]'s mn is [name_f]Beatrix[/name_f], but it’s not the same & she’s a dog so maybe it’d be okay to use this to honor my Aunt [name_f]Berniece[/name_f]. :wink: )

[name_f]Stella[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] ([name_f]Pearl[/name_f] to honor my grandma [name_f]Pauline[/name_f], and also [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] is a great grandma’s name.)

[name_f]Daisy[/name_f] [name_f]Willa[/name_f] (Dh’s grandpa was [name_m]William[/name_m], so I guess we’ll throw an honor name in there for his family too!)

Sorry if that was way more information than you were looking for, but hopefully you got some nice new names to think about. :slight_smile:


If this little babe is a girl, our top five picks are:


[name_f]Madeleine[/name_f], [name_f]Amelie[/name_f], [name_f]Aurelia[/name_f], [name_f]Aurora[/name_f], [name_f]Alina[/name_f]

A name obsession :slight_smile:

[name_f]Wilhelmina[/name_f] ([name_f]Willa[/name_f])
[name_f]Rosemary[/name_f] ([name_u]Romy[/name_u])
[name_u]Juniper[/name_u] ([name_f]Junie[/name_f])
