From the melodic to the mighty, musical names for girls have something for every naming style. There are the obvious and the understated, along with celebrity-inspired picks. Let’s run through a few standouts together.

Our first stop in musical girl names is word names. Melody and Harmony are the most obvious musical baby girl names to enthusiasts and casual listeners alike. Both are easy to say and spell, making them quite popular with parents. If you’d like something a little edgier, check out Jazz. She’s a one-syllable sweetheart with loads of energy. On a similar note is Blue, an adorable choice for lovers of blues music. Other word wonders among musical names for girls are Lyric, Cadence, and Viola.

If you’re more interested in subtle musical girl names, you can turn to meanings. Rinna is a gorgeous Hebrew name meaning “joyous song,” and Shira means “my song.” The Sanskrit sweetheart Rania is perfect for a vocal baby with her meaning, “she is singing.” Candena’s “with rhythm” is fitting for a singer or dancer. The Greek Philyra means “lover of music,” which is a definite standout in this group.

Musical performers are a good source of namespiration too. Surnames are a fun place to start your search, with Presley (as in Elvis) and Dylan (as in Bob) great unisex picks. There are also the Beatle beauties Starr and Lennon. Starr is flashy word name find, but we think she’s super cool. Lennon is an Irish name meaning “dear one.” Rock lovers will adore Stevie (Stevie Nicks/Stevie Ray Vaughan), while jazz and modern music lovers might cherish Billie. Other performer picks are Aretha, Etta, and Cher.

Don’t forget about song titles in your search for musical names for girls, either. Rhiannon spiked in popularity after Fleetwood Mac’s song, as did Roxanne after The Police’s tune. Eric Clapton’s Layla is an option, as is Lucy from the Beatles’ “Lucy In the Sky In Diamonds.”

We hope you find the music-inspired name of your dreams on our list. Happy naming!
