Discover a world of soaring cliffs and deep blue seas with Scandinavian girl names. These beautiful picks vary from the soft and serene to the fierce and godlike. Check out a few highlights with us below.

Overall, Scandinavian girl names are not incredibly common in the U.S. Their most popular member, Mia, is a mega-hot name, however. This pint-sized princess soared to the top of the charts in recent years, and she seems like she’s pretty cozy up there. Following distantly on the charts are less common names that are recognizable but not seen in every classroom. This includes stunners like Freya, Kaia, and Dahlia. They fit in well with more popular names, and we definitely think they deserve more attention. We adore little Hallie and Karina, too, and hope to see them more often. These are names that exist in what we like to call sweet-spot territory. They’re known, but not popular, making them an attractive choice for avoiding the dreaded first name-last initial combo at school.

Some Scandinavian girl names farther down the baby name charts are on the rise. They aren’t exactly spiking in popularity, but there’s a definite uptick to pay attention to. This group includes Tova, a fun alternative to Nova. We absolutely love the styling of this cutie and can picture her as a charismatic little one with a unique fashion sense. Astrid is another precious pick on the rise, and we’re wild about this floral find. She’s the perfect name for a tiny artist that’s mastering the canvas, making her one of our favorites in this group. Rayne is also creeping higher on the charts along with Liv, a name that works just as well on her own as she does as a nickname for Olivia.

You also have many rare names to choose from among Scandinavian girl names. Linnea is one that we see eons of potential for. Her sound is simply stunning, and she works beautifully on a young girl and a woman alike. Kindra is another stunning yet overlooked name, and we’re shocked that she’s not more popular. We recommend looking beyond the charts for something unique if you’re a lover of all things rare. You won’t be disappointed with Scandinavian girl names. Other notable uncommon picks include Vivika, Brinda, and Norell.

Remember to keep your eye on meanings too, as Scandinavian girl names have gorgeous ones hidden amongst them. Kirsten means “follower of Christ” and Olga means “blessed” if you’re looking for a name with religious ties. There’s also Dagny, a unique pick meaning “new day,” which is the perfect meaning for a new life. We love Alva’s “elf,” too, for a spirited baby girl that’s petite. You can also feel “brave” with the adorable Ebba or honor how much of a “sweetheart” your baby is with the playful Tippi.

As you can see, Scandinavian girls come in many styles, and there are many more waiting for you in our collection.
