There are many reasons why parents love 5 letter girl names. For one, numerology fascinates people far and wide, often leading parents to seek out names containing a certain number of letters. The number five represents curiosity and adventure–two things we want in spades for our little ones. Other parents select 5 letter names because they seek to match their other children’s names or a set pattern elsewhere in their family tree. Let’s explore some of our favorite 5 letter names for girls together. 

First up in five letter girl names are vintage darlings. Here you’ll find the peppy Penny, a shortened form of Penelope that shines just as brightly on her own. You’ll also find Josie, a diminutive of Josephine and Josepha. Tomboyish yet sweet, she fits in well with modern girl names. Molly and Alice are popular old-fashioned picks with parents today, while Sally and Flora are less common options for lovers of rare names.

Many 5 letter girl names lean modern if that’s your style. Kenna is one of our favorites. Meaning “greatest champion,” this Welsh cutie is super contemporary. There’s also Aylin, a Turkish beauty we’d love to see more often stateside. Other modern 5 letter names are Ariah, Jayla, and Mylah.

Many of today’s most popular monikers are 5 letter girl names, including Sofia, Emily, and Avery. Layla continues to wow parents with her mysterious meaning “night,” while Chloe’s “green sprout” is perfect for a blossoming new life. Other popular five-letter girl names are Ellie, Hazel, and Riley.

Five letter names for girls contain many word name wows too. Ember and her sister Amber are top contenders. While Amber has sparkled for years on the charts, Ember is relatively new, and we can’t wait to see how high she climbs in ranking. There are natural options, like River and Daisy, as well as virtue names, including Grace and Faith

Hopefully, you find some new stars for your list among 5 letter girl names.
