With the nature name trend in full swing, bird names for girls are more stylish than ever. Don’t believe us? Check out the most popular girl names of today, and you’ll see Ava and Evelyn, two picks with feathered roots. They’re only the tip of the iceberg with these feathered finds, as there are more hidden gems just waiting to be found. Let’s swoop into bird names for girls together.

You can use literal bird names for your baby girl, with each packing their own vibe. For instance, Dove is a sweet pick with gentle connotations, while Falcon is a strong choice that implies a powerful being with a fighting spirit. Robin was a long-time favorite among literal bird names for girls, though Raven flew onto parents’ radars in recent years and has replaced her. Current rising stars in this group include Wren, a super-stylish one-syllable sweetie that feels like she belongs on the red carpet, and Sparrow, an ultra-modern pick reminiscent of Harlow.

If the obvious route isn’t for you, you can always turn to meanings for that feathered feel. Palila is a beautiful Polynesian name meaning “bird,” while our Paloma‘s name means “dove.” If you want something with hidden strength, try Daya, a Hebrew name with recent celebrity ties and the fierce meaning “bird of prey.” A little Daya is one who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to work for it.

One of the hottest celebrity baby names right now happens to be a vintage bird name choice: Birdie. She’s just as delicate as Minnie or Betty, but her feathered flair makes her a standout. Other bird names for girls fly between styles, with Aderyn and Jaylah having modern vibes that work wonderfully with today’s top names despite a long history of use.

Bird names for girls may seem a little out there, but as nature names continue to shine, it’s their time to soar too.
