Soar through the cosmos or capture the beauty of scripture’s heaven with celestial girl names. These stunning names can have the power of the brightest stars or the mystery of the smallest dwarf planet. Ready your rocketship and meet some amazing celestial girl names with us.

Greek mythology is home to many lovely celestial names for girls. Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of fertility, while Artemis is the goddess of hunting. Athena is the goddess of war, and her sweet friend Hera is the goddess of marriage and queen of the Olympian gods. You can also find celestial standouts in Roman mythology. Juno is the Roman queen of goddesses, and Minerva is the goddess of wisdom. Luna is the Roman embodiment of the moon and glows with celestial beauty. This moon goddess is quite popular today and shows no signs of slowing down. She’s also a Harry Potter name.

Other celestial baby girl names get their names from celestial bodies. Venus is the most well-known of these planetary picks. Worn by tennis superstar Venus Williams, Venus means “love.” Surprisingly she’s not very common, though we’d love to see her more often. You can also opt for a dwarf planet name, like Ceres or Eris. These are much rarer but just as beautiful. Planets and other celestial bodies are fascinating namesakes, as they give your little one something to research later in life.

For a taste of the brightest stars, see Astra. This Latin lady means “star.” Astrea is a slightly longer form of her if you’re looking for an extra syllable. Danica means “morning star,” while Vesper is her opposite, meaning “evening star.” You can opt for constellations like Lyra, Andromeda, and Gemini, or individual named stars like Adhara, Azha, and Bellatrix. See Stella, Seren, and Esther for more star-themed celestial girl names.

Heavenly names are common among celestial baby names. These names are tied to religious paradises, including Heaven itself. Heaven is a steady fixture on the charts, along with her reverse form, Nevaeh. Araceli means “altar of heaven,” while Angel is a well-known “messenger of God.” Celesia means “heavenly,” as does Celeste. You might love the Polynesian princess Kalani, meaning “the heavens,” or her friend Kehlani, meaning “sea heavens.” These names offer exceptional beauty and spiritual significance.

Our favorite part of celestial girl names is their amazing meanings. Cielo is a Spanish sweetheart meaning “sky,” and Chandra means “moon shining.” If you’d like a name from Arabic roots, see Bader and Iamar. For Latin origins, you have Celina, meaning “moon,” and among celestial girl names with Hebrew roots, you can find Talia‘s “heaven’s dew.”
