Parents love three letter girl names. If you have any doubt, check out the top of the name charts where you’ll find Ava and Mia. These modern mavens remain popular, and with their styling, it’s obvious why. Let’s get to know more three letter girl names and see what other treasures we can uncover.

Our first stop in three letter girl names is with Eve. Short and stylish, she’s an excellent alternative to the mega-popular Ava yet feels more mature. She has a high-fashion air to her, and we can picture Eve rocking runways around the world. We also love her sister Eva. For a rhyming sister to Ava, see Ada. This German beauty isn’t too popular stateside, but we see plenty of room for her on the charts. Other modern chart-toppers include Zoe, Liv, and Ivy.

Three letter girl names have always been popular, as seen in yesteryear’s Amy, a sweet pick who once ruled the roost. Meaning “beloved one,” it’s no surprise that parents adore her. For a modern twist on her, see Ari and Avi. Ana and her sister Ann are also chart staples with classic roots. If you love a classic, check out Lia, a short sweetheart who sounds just like the biblical beauty Leah.

Rare name lovers are in for a three with 3 letter girl names, as many aren’t popular. Xia is one of our favorite rare three letter girl names. This Greek great means “guest” and has an exciting look we’d love to see more often. Aza also fits in this category. Meaning “comfort,” this Arabic name is just too cool. You might like Uma too, as in the actress Uma Thurman. See Zia, Eri, and Nya for more uncommon three letter baby girl names.

Check out the rest of our three letter girl names list and see what other petite picks you’ll find.
