Preppy girl names have polish and poise, managing to hold the maturity and sophistication of adulthood while retaining a youthful glow. With all that going for them, it’s no surprise that parents adore them. Let’s meet some preppy names for girls and see why they’re so special.

Many of today’s most popular monikers are preppy baby girl names. If you check the top of the charts, you’ll find Olivia, Ava, Charlotte, and Emma. These picks certainly have a tailored nature, perfectly fitting the preppy mold. Unisex preppy names like Avery, Harper, Addison, and Madison also sit high on the charts for a less frilly feel.

At the same time, there are many rare preppy girl names to choose from, such as Fallon, Greer, and Bristol. These monikers may not be as common, but they’re the perfect pick if you’re looking for something unique.

Some of the best preppy girl names are surnames. These names feel mature beyond their years with an upscale air to them. Collins and Campbell are contemporary favorites among them, while Lexington has a historical charm. See Austen for a splash of literary sparkle, as in beloved author Jane Austen. Berkeley is seeing a rise in popularity recently, along with Sutton, a sweet choice that’s relatively nickname-proof.

The preppiest girl names often fall into the trendy category, like Brynlee and Adley. Trendy names usually see a meteoric rise in popularity and follow an in-demand sound that may fade as quickly as it arrives on the scene. This makes them feel super modern and stylish. Preppy baby names that lean trendy include Hartley, Henley, and Whitley. As you can see, that -lee suffix is everywhere at the moment and remains well-loved. At the same time, classic choices are also common among preppy baby girl names, like Elizabeth, Abigail, and Alexandra. These names float around the names chart over the years but don’t disappear entirely, giving them a timeless feel.

Browse the rest of our preppy girl names collection and see which cutie ends up on your favorites list.
