Baddie names for girls are some of our favorites. “Baddie” is a modern term for a “bad girl” or “badass.” This isn’t a bad thing, either, as a baddie is a strong chickadee who does things her way. She’s not going to sit back and listen to bossiness. She’s confident, cute, and fiercely fashionable, too. We’ve grabbed some top-notch baddie girl names from our extended list to give a sample of this cool name niche. Let’s meet them.

Character-linked baddie names for girls have strong connections to badass females in film or media, giving them built-in toughness. Harley and her friend Quinn are modern marvels in this respect, as they’re associated with DC Comics’ antiheroine Harley Quinn. Her fellow DC Comics friend Ivy is another fabulous find. Linked to Batman’s rival Poison Ivy, she’s a nature name with an edgy side. She’s enjoying a recent spike in popularity, climbing the highest she’s ever been on the charts as of 2021’s name rankings. She’s also somewhat vintage, nabbing another in-demand style of today. See Bellatrix,  Miranda, and Gemma for more character-based baddies.

Vibes are important with baddie names for girls, and some picks nail the fierce feel. Cleo is one of our favorites, as this confident queen’s “the celebrated one” meaning is next-level awesome. Often thought of as a short form of Cleopatra, this zesty moniker stands just fine on her own. Giselle is also steeped in self-confidence. Meaning “pledge,” this French phenom is the perfect fit for a little one ready to take the world by storm. Other monikers with baddie vibes include Drew, Aviana, and Zadie.

Another key point of names is their meaning. No-nonsense meanings are treasures amid baddie names for girls. These bold beauties don’t shy away from declaring their strength. Nyla is a perfect example with her “one who achieves” meaning. This Arabic stunner is soft in sound, but her meaning says loud and clear that she’s ready to rock through life with success. Rieka‘s “power of the wolf” is another great find. A German gem, she’s super rare, but that doesn’t make her any less mighty. Zoe is a more common choice if you prefer something well-known. Her meaning of “life” suits a little girl determined to live every moment to its fullest potential. Check out Veda, Zariah, and Adira for more tough meanings.
