Saint names for girls are an amazing way to honor your faith. Sainthood is a sacred honor, and these names are touched by divinity and beauty alike. They are strong yet gentle and bless your daughter with a great association for life. Saint names for girls are definitely a great place to look for a name for your little one.

Some of our favorite finds among saint names for girls are those that are similar to the top names of today but unique. Emiliana is a step away from Emilia but just as beautiful, and her namesake was one who lived a life of love and serenity. Alodia is another gorgeous name we hope to see more often. She fits in two of today’s hottest styles with her vowel start and trendy -ia ending. Two other picks that have our attention are Rosalia and Marina. Both aren’t unheard of and enjoy modest popularity today.

You’ll find plenty of classics among saint names for girls like Catherine and Elisabeth. Today’s most popular girl names are also plentiful, with Ava, Emma, and Emily making an appearance on the list. Not surprisingly, virtue names are also common in saint names for girls like Felicity and Faith. You might be surprised that some of your favorite names also double as saint names!

If you’re a fan of unique names, you’re in luck with saint names for girls. Since these names date back hundreds of years, there are many stunning names awaiting rediscovery. Theodosia and Vincentia are two standouts that can work well among grander names that are in style today like Valentina and Arabella. We’re also loving Belina and Cinnia for gentle names with heart. For vintage name lovers, check out Barbara and Paula. These are right on trend with names like Evelyn and Eleanor.
