Mermaid names for girls offer a splash of the sea with infinite beauty. These ocean-dwelling creatures sprinkle mythology around the world, making them treasures across many cultures. Before you sail through our collection, dive into some of our highlights to get to know these beauties better.

Since girl mermaid names come from the sea, many of their names are ocean-themed. Oceane is an obvious pick, as she gives you an ocean association with a touch of something more. You could also use Shell, a simple yet stunning moniker who has obvious ocean ties. If you’d prefer something a touch more subtle in her sea vibes, Maritza means “of the sea,” and Naia means “water nymph.” You always have Sirena, too, since siren is another word for mermaid.

Usually mermaid legends center on the sea creature’s beautiful song, so it’s not a surprise that many mermaid names for girls are also musical in nature. Melody is right at home on a singing sea nymph, but so is her longer variant, Melodia. Harmony also suits a musical maiden. For a hidden music meaning, check out Serenada, an Italian beauty meaning “a song in the night.” Shira, a Hebrew pick, is a touch more personal with her stunning meaning of “my song.” How fitting for your baby girl!

Mermaid names for girls may also be associated with precious gems. Mermaids are deep sea treasures, after all. Jewel and Gem are the most straightforward picks, and both fit a tail-toting princess perfectly. Rubinia and Emeraldina offer a touch more drama if you’d like something with fashionista flair behind her. There are plenty of other sparkling sweethearts waiting with the rest of our deep-sea stunners.

Whether you’re looking for something as recognizable as Ariel or a surprise, you’ll find it with mermaid names for girls.
