The Meaning Of Girls Names

As you can see we have the meaning of girls names to the right of the page on this website, and we think this is very important as many people love to know what their name, or a name they wish to choose for their new baby girl means. You may wish to pick a name that has strong connotations to something close to your heart for instance, or you may wish to find a girls name that has a link to your culture or some sort of link to your family history.

As an example, Acacia is a symbol of immortality, which you may think is cool for your babies name to be attached to such a meaning. Another example is Ursula, which means Little Bear and is a kind of cute meaning to have for a name I am sure you will agree.

You may want to choose a girls name that has a soothing quality to it, and so maybe you could choose Safa, a lovely name which means Pure and Serene. Or you may wish to have a super intelligent girl, in which case you could call your child Persephone, which means dazzlingly bright. This is quite an unusual name and this could also be a positive for you if you want a name for your baby girl that stands out form the crowd.

What about Dionne, which means Daughter Of Heaven And Earth ? The meaning of your girls name is probably not as important to you as you liking the actual sound of the name, but all the same it is nice to have this knowledge which you can use in the conversation from time to time. Each girls name probably gives each individual a different image in their mind depending on their history, who they have met previously who has had that particular name, and the fact that we all have minds that work slightly differently to each others. But that is what makes life interesting, we all see things and view things differently, which is why one person may love a certain girls name, and another thinks it is awful!!

Enjoy the website and I hope you find a girls name that fits for you and your partner.

Unisex Names

There are quite a lot of girls names now that are suitable as boys names too. In many cases they are probably more common to one gender than the other but not always. Some names become more popular with one sex or the other over time and get dropped by one gender.

It can also be the case that a name that is common to boys in one country may be more popular for girls in another country. As more and more people are moving around the world this blurs the boundaries with regard to names and we probably find now that girls and boys names have become more interchangeable than they ever have been before.

Let us look at a few examples of unisex names:

Jordan is not really favoured by any sex over the other.

Cameron has traditionally been known more as a boys name, but since the film star Cameron Diaz has been around it is becoming popular for girls.

Adrian is a unisex name, although girls sometimes spell it as Adrienne.

Alex is a very popular name at present with both sexes and of course can be short for either Alexandra or Alexander.

Morgan is again pretty interchangeable between the sexes, two famous examples being Morgan Freeman and Morgan Fairchild.

Jesse has been used for both sexes down the ages and still is a very popular first name.

Taylor I predict wll become more and more prevalent particularly for girls as Taylor Swifts star rises and rises, but it is still a popular boys name too.

Ashley is a common name for both sexes and has been for many many years.

Bailey has recently become a popular name and is used for both girls and boys without favour.

Leslie is used more for girls than boys now I would guess but it is still firmly in the unisex category.

These are just 10 examples of unisex names, of course there are many more, but it is interesting to see how names become adopted from one sex to another over time.
