Fairy names for girls have the ultimate “It” Factor — magic! As sweet as they are mysterious (and sometimes mischievous,) girl fairy names come in many styles. Whether you prefer something popular or a diamond in the rough, you can find a fairy girl name that fits your parameters.

Most fairy names for girls have a sweet, peppy sound. Fairies themselves are typically upbeat in folklore, so it’s not a surprise that their names usually are too. Pixie is an obvious pick, as pixies are also small mythical beings. Similarly, there’s Pippy, a joyful name that makes everyone smile at her mentioning. Her sister Pippa is equally happy, and she also has added royal associations thanks to a certain duchess’s sister. Posy is another name fit for a fairy, and we’re surprised she hasn’t caught on more along with her friend, Poppy, another fairy-friendly pick.

Fairy names for girls also trend towards shorter options, perhaps because of a fairy’s petite size. Mia is the most popular choice, and this tiny trendsetter doesn’t show any signs of slowing on the charts. If you like her sound but not the popularity, check out Tia, an equally adorable pick, or Zia, an energetic rhyming friend that feels at home on a zippy fairy. There’s also Joy, a sunny standout with a small size but enormous spirit.

If you prefer girl fairy names with a hidden magical meaning, check out Shayleigh. A Celtic cutie, she means “fairy princess,” which is more than precious. Chepi is a Native American moniker meaning “fairy,” while Dela is a Latin lady that means “small winged one.” For something a little longer, there’s Aubrette, meaning “magical being,” and Adelina, who means “small winged one.”
