It’s hard to top the built-in glamor of Hollywood names for girls. Drenched in silver screen history and style, these starlets have enduring beauty. Some carry instant recognition thanks to Hollywood stars, while others are more subtle in their famous ties. New, old, and everything in between, we’ve got a walk of fame lined with Hollywood girl names for you to explore.

When it comes to Hollywood names, most think of famous Hollywood actress names, like the icons Marilyn Monroe or Elizabeth Taylor. There’s also everyone’s favorite style queen Audrey, as in Audrey Hepburn, or the timeless elegance seen in Grace, coming from actress turned princess, Grace Kelly. While these beauties have undeniable Hollywood lineage, they still allow your little one room to shine.

Some of our favorite monikers are Old Hollywood girl names, like Judy and Bette. These darlings of yesteryear are loaded with retro charm, wearing well on any little girl. In this realm, we adore the simplicity of one-syllable picks Mae and Jean, and the spunkiness of Rita and Betty. Best of all, Old Hollywood names like these fit in great with today’s vintage naming trend.

In the modern world of Hollywood girl names, you’ll find Aubrey, hailing from deadpan darling Aubrey Plaza and Emma, a name held by many of today’s top actresses. There’s also Helen, for Dame Helen Mirren, and her close friend, Helena, as in Helena Bonham Carter. Taraji is a rising star since we can totally see her rocketing up the charts alongside Taraji P. Henson’s fame. Octavia is another to watch, as her wearer, Octavia Spencer, is an award-winning wonder woman. 

Many Hollywood names for girls work well with today’s top trends, including surname stunners Harlow and Loren. Others are popular in their own right in recent years but still have deep silver-screen ties, like Ava and Sophia. You can always opt for timeless classics, including Anna, Vivien, and Katharine, or you can opt for a rare choice, such as Vivica, Cicely, or Yvonne. With Hollywood girl names, there’s something for every style.
