City girl names have a fashionable feel that put them in a league of their own. They manage to be worldly yet familiar, and parents can’t get enough. Some city girl names come from places, while others are inspired by the polished style of uptown. We love the urban vibes of city girl names and hope you enjoy our favorites too.

City baby girl names contain many place name cuties like southern sweethearts Savannah, Atlanta, and Charlotte. You could soar to the American southwest for Phoenix, or you head down under for the oh-so-adorable Sydney. City names for girls wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Europe as well, where London, Paris, and Vienna reign supreme. There’s no need to worry about being too different either, as place names are always in style if you study the charts. There are more unique choices among them, too, like Chicago and Berlin.

Many of today’s most popular girl names have a metropolitan flair. Olivia and Sophia are naturals in the city and the suburbs alike. Amelia and Ella are equally fitting and wouldn’t stand out at all downtown. For those interested in something a little less common, check out Whitney and Courtney for city-style without the popularity.

When we think of the city, we’re transported to a world of wonder and imagination, where the arts rule and anything goes. There’s less restraint in the city, and the taste in names reflects it. While Amethyst may stick out in the suburbs, she’s at home in a metro area. Like the places they call home, city girl names are full of energy. You can turn to television for inspiration with everyone’s favorite city girls Carrie, Miranda, Samantha, and Charlotte, or you can look to the city streets like Madison.

City girl names will always be in style. They’re exciting, artsy, and everything in between, perfect for your little one!
