More and more, parents are seeking something outside of the box, and edgy baby girl names deliver. These stylish picks have heaps of personality, whether they’re long and luxurious like Antoinette or short and sassy like Kipp. They tend to walk on the wild side and fit a spirited youngster brilliantly.

Being edgy doesn’t necessarily mean being totally out there, either. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course!) Edgy girl names contain many of today’s most popular trends, like place names, including Phoenix, Chicago, and Milan. They aren’t that different than Brooklyn or London, yet have an added oomph of style to put them over the top. You’ll also find the ever-popular surname style that’s full of favorites like Fallon, Quinn, and Brinkley. These names are polished to the ear, yet have a wild streak, making them naturals on the edgy girl names list.

If you want to go even bolder, you could turn to music for inspiration, where you’ll find Marley, Stevie, and Miley, to name a few. Word name picks are also especially edgy, as seen with Ever and Sonnet. If you find literal words a touch too much, turn to meanings for inspiration. There’s the fashionable Vida, meaning “life,” and the tough girl Sloane, meaning “raid.”

Edgy girl names aren’t just contemporary—they are an eclectic mix of new and old. Modern monikers like Haisley, Skyla, and Bexley are winning over parents. But if you’re a lover of classics, you might prefer edgy girl names like Millie and Matilda. For a happy medium, try out Jovie, a spunky pick that works for both camps.

What makes a name edgy varies by person. Some find a certain suffix fits the ticket, like the long -O ending found in Margo and Cleo, while others love the excitement of an unexpected letter like X as seen in Xenia. Whatever your definition, give an edgy girl name a chance to win you over.
