Whether the names themselves inspire joy or the women that have held them, funny girl names are a great place to look for your next favorite. Humor and happiness go hand in hand, making funny girl names a gift from the heavens. What’s better for the soul than a good laugh, after all?

Some funny girl names are obvious, with picks like Joy and Charisma fit for a little comedienne. Other names feel natural on an entertainer like Lola and Sunny. For something more subtle, check out Risa, a Latin name meaning “laughter.” Funny girl names don’t have to be tied to humor, either. Light and airy picks are plentiful in the genre, with Ruthie, Essie, and Lula working wonders.

Classic comediennes are a wonderful source of funny girl names. Lucille Ball was America’s darling, as no one could get enough of her on I Love Lucy. Similarly, Carol Burnett broke comedy barriers of her own as the star of the Carol Burnett Show,¬†while Betty White shines as a national treasure. As vintage names continue to reign supreme, these picks are on-trend. Modern comediennes offer up lovely funny girl names as well like Tina, Ellen, and Amy. Comedic actresses are great associations too, with Zooey, Aubrey, and Maya just some of our favorites.

Funny baby girl names come from awesome characters too. You can turn to classic television shows like the Golden Girls where Sophia, Dorothy, Blanche, and Rose won over audiences. In recent years, Modern Family brought Gloria and Haley back into the spotlight, while the Big Bang Theory featured Penny, a vintage find with loads of spunk. On the silver screen, Bridesmaids had Annie, Lillian, and Brynn stirring up laughs.

A little bit of laughter goes a long way, and funny girl names promise plenty of it. We love the lighter feel of these names and hope you do too.
