This may be the case especially if your little one came into this world facing difficulty. Powerful girl names are a badge of honor for these precious wee ones, paying homage to their strength and resilience.

There’s the popular pick of Audrey with her meaning “noble strength” as well as Victoria meaning “victory.” With girl names that mean strong, your little one will have a hidden nugget of power in her back pocket at all times.

Strong baby girl names may get their power by association like the mighty Aphrodite, Athena, and Artemis.

These strong female names are a great way to claim your little one’s independence and determination from the start.

Powerful girl names are a great way to tap into fierce feminity.
