Nordic names for girls capture the beauty of the north with ease. As powerful as they are pretty, these names are some of our favorites.

Most people can’t list off many Nordic girl names if put on the spot, but it may surprise you to know many popular names throughout history are Nordic. There’s Mia, the pint-sized princess that’s recently rocketed in popularity, and Kaia, another cutie enjoying modern fame. Brenda and Kiersten are also Nordic picks that were once very common.

While most Nordic girl names aren’t very common, these beauties are merely waiting to be discovered. Many fit today’s top naming trends, and we see so much potential throughout them. Britt is our top standout, especially as one-syllable girl names continue to rock the name scene. She feels like an updated form of Brittany, and her petite style gives off a mix of sweet and sassy. Similarly, there’s Brenn, another short pick. We love her double N ending, which adds a slightly edgy vibe. For unisex name lovers, check out Davin. She’s a no-frills name with a soft sound, and we can picture her rocking the baby name scene.

If you’re a fan of rare girl names, you’re in luck. Lilja is a sweet variant of Lily that can honor your heritage without the popularity. Eirny is another cutie that has a playful nature that’s right at home on a baby girl. We love the simplicity Malin, and the boldness of Valkyrie will earn fans.

Our favorite side of Nordic names for girls are meanings, of course. Idonia’s “loving one” is off-the-charts with cuteness, as is Astri’s “star.” The “goddess” Ase is amazing for your little girl, as is Aina’s “forever,” which captures your endless love.
