With countless alternative spellings and trends on the Social Security Administration’s top baby names chart, it can be challenging to find unique girl names. Some parents are looking for standout first names, while others seek unique middle names with an exotic flair. Luckily there are many hidden treasures ready to shine. Let’s meet some of these cool baby girl names together.

Unique baby girl names may come from the past, like Ariadne. This stunning moniker from Greek mythology means “most holy.” She’s never been a top ten pick on the Social Security Administration’s charts, but her sister Ariana sees a lot of contemporary use. Other unique vintage monikers used to be popular names but have fallen out of the spotlight, making them awesome girl names to consider. Belinda is one of these treasures that we love to recommend. Meaning “beautiful river,” she’s certainly worthy of consideration for your beautiful baby girl. See Mabel, Rosemary, and Vera for more unique vintage options.

Other unusual girl names are considered modern baby girl names because of their contemporary flair. This includes word name options like Breezy and Bliss. They’re similar to popular baby girl names like Grace and Hazel yet aren’t found in nearly every school. In fact, within unique baby girl names, many options mirror the trends seen atop the charts. If you’re a lover of the surname style, check out Lennon and Monroe for something edgier than Madison or Harper. You might also like Ever, Kainda, and Inari, whose sounds play well with chart-topping choices.

There is a world of options for parents seeking unique middle names with a splash of style. These rare monikers can zest up a well-known family name or add some adventure to a classic. You might like cute middle names for girls with a spunky side, like word name finds Jewel and Story. You may also enjoy colorful picks like Rainbow and Violet‘s lighter sister Lavender. If you’re seeking something totally unexpected, try names like Feliz and Nixie. It feels like there are endless unique middle names for girls with all the possibilities!

It’s important to keep your mind open to letters you might not normally consider when browsing unique baby girl names. Xarissa and Zamira are just some of the exciting finds waiting for the right little one. They have energy that leaps off the page and would wear well on a little girl ready to take on tomorrow. Consider new origins from around the world, too, like Indian baby girl names. Taja, meaning “crown,” is one of our favorites.

Explore the rest of our unique girl names list for more amazing options.
