Countless female monikers are making major moves on the charts. These hot girl names come in an assortment of styles, from old-school favorites to modern marvels. We’ve highlighted a few of these phenomenal finds for you.

The hottest girl names leaped over 300 spots on the charts in recent years. Raya is one to watch, as this Disney-themed cutie meaning “friend” was the biggest mover of 2021, and she’s showing no signs of slowing. Wrenley is another mega mover. She’s a beautiful name that combines the bird beauty Wren with the popular –Lee suffix. The last legendary leaper is Angelique, a variation of Angel with an ear-pleasing ending.

Plenty more hot girl names buzzed up over 200 spots on the charts like the surname sweetheart Murphy and word name winners Navy, Ocean, and Halo. There are vintage choices like Della and Flora, as well as contemporary cuties Jaylani and Emberlynn. If you’re after epic meanings, check out Arleth’s “lion of God” and Vida’s “life.” See Nyra, Zayla, and Elia for more of the hottest girl names that rose 200 spots or more.

Certain styles continue to shine, including old-fashioned finds. In the Top 10, you’ll find many, like Olivia, Emma, and Amelia. These were once deemed “old lady names,” but today, they’re seen as stylish and sweet. Further down the charts, Sylvia and her similar sister Cynthia are enjoying a resurgence in popularity. They’re excellent alternatives to the mega-popular Sophia. You might like Daphne, too, a Scoopy Doo darling meaning “laurel.” Vintage nicknames are trending too, like Ellie, Lucy, and Sadie toward the top of the charts and Birdie, Goldie, and Bonnie building momentum further below. Other hot girl names with old-school roots include Sandra, Theodora, and Opal.

Boy names on girls remain well-loved, too, with Noah, Drew, and Chandler rising for little girls. Fallon and Sutton are finding their footing, while the rough-and-tumble Ryder rode right in with her engines blazing. Check out Rory and Austyn for more masculine names that are hot for girls right now.

Some hot girl names are sneaky with their popularity, such as Oakleigh. She was given to 487 U.S. girls in 2021, while Oaklee was given to 641, and Oakley to 1,524. Together, these Oak girls are more popular than Liliana, who sits way up at #104 on the charts. This sneaky popularity is also found with Mylah/Myla, Tatum/Taytum, and Adeline/Adelyn/Adelynn/Addilyn/Addilynn.
