Playing princess is as synonymous with growing up as tea parties and dollhouses. Maybe that’s why princess names for girls are always catching parents’ eyes. Cute, classy, and sometimes sassy, princess names may carry years of royal history to explore. With royal watching as old as the monarchies themselves, baby name popularity typically mirrors royal baby announcements. This may have led to the sudden rise of Charlotte, thanks to the adorable Princess of Cambridge. Let’s check out some princess name picks together.

The most obvious princess names for girls are those of real-life princesses, like Diana, Anne, and Margaret for the Brits, or Grace and Charlene from Monaco. Along with the UK’s Charlotte, The Netherlands’ princesses CatharinaAmalia, Alexia, and Ariane have inspired a royal baby name frenzy. Princess names frequently repeat throughout history, so you’ll likely find a name used several times in one monarchy over generations. While this repetition is easy to spot, princess names are also as diverse as their wearers, from Morocco’s Lalla to Japan’s Toshi. This makes finding a princess name that fits your style easy.

If you want a princess name that isn’t tied to any current monarchy, a great place to search is fiction. While they hail from the land of make-believe, fictional princess names are as usable as real-life princess names. Disney princess names are a gold mine of beauty, ranging from the common Jasmine to the rare Tiana and Mulan. Fictional princess names for girls may be connected to a character, but that doesn’t mean your little one can’t shape her name as she grows and make it her own. There’s also Mia and Amelia, from the Princess Diaries, and Rosette, from the French fairytale bearing the same name.

Of course, you could always go with a name meaning princess, like Sarah, Sabrina, or Soraya. At the end of the day, there are endless princess names for girls, as any name is that of a princess on your little girl.
