We know popularity is a big make or break factor for many parents. You may prefer the mystery of unique baby girl names. Or perhaps you can’t resist this year’s trendiest and most popular girl names. We've solved that conundrum by listing each name's popularity along with it, giving you a peek at the charts without needing to navigate additional sites.

When looking at popular girl names, there are few things to consider:

  • Are there other spellings of the name that are also popular? This could lead to the name being more common than you thought like Sophia/Sofia.
  • Is the name you’re considering a popular nickname for a more common name? Bella may feel less common, but the chart-topper Isabella has populated playgrounds with it for years.
  • Is your favorite name on the rise? Vintage dolls like Amelia and Evelyn have been spiking in recent years, rising from relative rarity to the top of the charts.
