Oddity, like beauty, is all the eye of the beholder, but odd girl names are plentiful if you mean unique. These out-there picks might not rule the charts, but they still rule our hearts with beautiful sounds and meanings. From surprising word names to forgotten classics, let’s meet some of these odd girl names and meanings together.

Odd can have a bit of a connotation, but we see it as synonymous with unique and think these names wear it like a badge of honor. These unusual female names may not be super popular, but they’re still worthy of love and may be your dream style. After all, not everyone wants a chart-topping name. Basma is one we adore. Meaning “smile,” this Arabic name is more than sweet. Kiva is another uncommon cutie, meaning “protect, shelter.” See Kindall, Naja, and Vesta for more.

Word-inspired choices are plentiful among odd baby girl names. Some are natural, like Apricot, Berry, and Lilac, while others are occupational, like Navy, Poet, and Sailor. Blessing is perfect for describing your daughter, as is Kismet. Lovers of virtue names are in luck, too, with Valor, Fortune, and Sincerity just some amazing options hiding among unusual and odd baby girl names. See Serene, Sonnet, and Treasure for more word-based odd names for girls.

Some of the coolest odd girl names are inspired by real-life places. Place name picks have a leg up over the competition because of their ability to evoke images of beautiful scenery or happy memories. You’ll find London, Paris, and India higher on the charts, but Holland is just as beautiful. With the adorable Holly nickname, Holland has a polished feel that’s always in style. Her friend Ireland mirrors this and is relatively nickname-proof. If you’re a fan of the ancients, you might like Palmyra, while stateside travelers might adore the sing-song Southern sweetheart Louisiana and the speedy sweetie, Daytona.

Browse the rest of our odd girl names list and see what rare treasures you’ll uncover.
