The most popular girl names of 2019 are a diverse mix of monikers bursting with beauty. Parents are loving names of all origins, with many classic choices still popular and several new names gracing the charts. Pop culture has definitely influenced name popularity, with Arya and Ariana just some of the Hollywood-inspired picks making appearances. Whether you’re all about the rise of new-age names like Paisley and Nova, or more interested in timeless darlings like Victoria and Elizabeth, you’re sure to find something you adore among 2019’s most popular girl names.

Unsurprisingly, parents are still gaga over last year’s most well-loved names like Emma and Olivia. Soft names with a gentle sound continue to wow like Ella and Mia. V is still a standout as well, with many top picks containing the vivacious letter like Ava and Evelyn. Vowel names are also holding strong like Isabella and Abigail.

Vintage beauties remain beloved among popular girl names, with Hazel, Ivy, and Eleanor winning over parents with their grandma-chic appeal. Some of the most popular picks like Sophia and Amelia were once far less common, so don’t shy away from names like Margaret and Esther, who are slowly climbing the charts. We’d keep an eye on the old-school sweethearts, as this trend doesn’t seem to be slowing anytime soon.

Of course, it wouldn’t be 2019 without modern monikers swooping in. Among the trend, you’ll find alternative spellings like Adalyn, Ryleigh, and Aubree, as well as unisex picks like Parker and Avery. The modern name group is also home to super sweet names like Kinsley and Kennedy that parents can’t get enough of.

The most popular girl names of 2019 might be common, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider them. These tried and true beauties are popular for a reason. If you’re looking for something familiar that isn’t found in every classroom, we suggest avoiding names that have recently spiked on the top girl names list or those with several popular spelling variations. Time-tested names are a great place to look for options like Gabriella, Samantha, and Allison. Each is well-known but doesn’t suffer from overuse. Of course, some parents may choose to use this list to look for names to avoid, which is perfectly okay too.

While the popular girl names list generally holds true across the United States, there are some variations between states. An example would be Leah. Overall, she’s the 41st most popular girl name in the U.S, but in New York, she’s all the way up in 9th place! On the flip side, Harper is the 9th most popular girl name in the country, yet she ranks down in 21st place in New York. When considering popularity, you might want to check out what’s common in your area. You can do so here.

Popular girl names are as diverse as they are beautiful. What trends do you see on the playground? Any guesses of what next year’s list might contain?
