Rhea
The name Rhea, pronounced “Ray-ah” is another wonderful option for a shorter baby name for your little girl. The name Rhea has two different origins: it is of Greek origin and means "flowing river or stream" and also of Latin origin where it means "poppy flower". I love the name Rhea because it is associated with Greek and Roman mythology and the imagery of flowers and water. Rhea was called 'the mother of gods' in Greek mythology. She was a Titaness and the mother of the Olympian gods. She was also mentioned in Roman mythology, as the mother of Romulus and Remus. It is also the name of a flightless bird in South America.

Emryn
Emryn is of English origin and means "Baby of Shai”. When looking for inspiration, it can be fun to reach back into history and reclaim a name that has fallen out of favor. Emryn is one of those monikers that held it’s place in the early 1900’s and has just been waiting to make a comeback. It would be classified under a “new to you” title. A little girl named Emryn will come with an extra dose of sassiness, for sure.

Irina
Irena is a Czech variant of Irene. Irene originates in Greek language and means "woman of peace". In Greek mythology, Irene was the daughter of Zeus and the personification of peace. It is also the name of several saints, as well as the name of several places in the United States. As a feminine given name it has always been more popular in Europe than the United States. Although some might argue that Irina is a Greek name, it's more predominantly a Russia name. Meaning "peace", Irina is usually shortened to just "Ira", but any other variations can also be used such as Rina or Ina (however these nicknames aren't usually used in Russia for Irina).

Taylor
Taylor originates in Middle English language and means "cloth cutter". It is derived from a surname and ultimately is of Latin origin. Lately, it has been more popular as a feminine name than a masculine one and it still functions as a surname as well. Taylor is quickly rising in popularity as a girl name. Someone once said Taylor stands for True, Amiable, Youthful, Lovely, Open-minded, Radiant. Now that person as you might have already guessed is a Taylor but she couldn't be too far from the truth, Taylor Swift the pop singer is proving.
22
Skylar
Skylar originates in Dutch language and means "scholar". Ultimately it is derived from a Dutch masculine name Schuyler. Skylar can be used as both feminine and masculine given names and functions as a surname as well. It is also the name of a British band. The spelling Skylar came into fashion as a feminine given name in the United States during the 1980s. As of 2007, the spelling Skylar was the 171st most common name for girls.
21
Jade
Jade originates in Spanish language and is taken from the word for an ornamental stone. It is considered to be efficient curing ailments of the kidneys and loins and is used in artwork and jewelry making. It can be used as both masculine and feminine given names, currently it is more popular for girls. It functions as a surname as well. Jade speaks of beauty and elegance and a little bit of naivety, it's like the most beautiful woman in the room who doesn't know she's beautiful. And it's just that innocence that makes Jade so attractive.
20
Bella
Bella is a diminutive of Isabella. Isabella is a variant of Isabel. Isabel originates in Latin language and means "promise of God". Ultimately, it is derived from Elizabeth, originating in Hebrew. Some sources suggest that Isabel is simply a Spanish and Portuguese form of Elizabeth. Most recently, the name Isabella was popularized by the character Isabella Swan in Twilight series written by Stephenie Meyer. Currently, it is a number one in the chart of popular feminine given names in the United States. Short form of Isabella (a beautiful name on it's own) and other names ending in bella, it is also associated with the Italian word bella meaning "beautiful". But I've got to warn you, a name like that means almost everyone's daughter, niece (and maybe nephew) will be bearing it. You knew there was a catch.
19
Kendra
Kendra most likely originates in Welsh language and means "supreme champion". It is a feminine form of Kendrick, or possibly Ken. Some sources also suggest it might originate in Old English language. As a feminine given name it is fairly popular in the United States nowadays.

Alexandria
Alexandria, a Greek name that means “defending men,” is a tasteful and elegant name. The identical twin Alexandra has a strong historic pedigree and was made famous by the Danish princess who married Edward VII King of England in 1863. If, like me, you think the name a little too big and one that needs to be grown into with nicknames then Alex, Allie, and Alexa, and Alexis are all great options.

Kennedy
Kennedy originates in Gaelic languages and means "protected with helmet". It was derived from an old Irish surname and as a surname it functions until today, the famous bearer being the 35th President of the United States. Kennedy is the name of one of our country’s most beloved political families. We all know and remember the family for the charisma, charm, and poised presentation to the country. The Irish surname holds a lot of esteem because of its connection to President John F. Kennedy.
16
Lydia
Lydia is the archetypal girl’s name in some ways. It means ‘beautiful or noble one’ in Greek, and was probably a surname given to women who came from the region of Lydia. It is so ancient that it appears as the name of a businesswoman and a seller of purple in the New Testament. It was also used as a family name from England, and it applied to a family that owned a village called Lydiate. They were listed in the Domesday Book in 1086 AD. A host of fictional characters bear the name, from the character in Pride and Prejudice to the protagonist in Hotel Transylvania, and it has graced women from every walk of life. This includes a spy, a patent medicine vendor, and a bunch of singers.
15
Jasmine
You have likely seen Jasmine flowers. They smell like summer and look like bright white lace. It isn’t a wonder that the Persians named it their word for ‘Gift from God’. The flower is frequently associated with love, beauty, and purity. Traditionally, they are used in garlands in Pakistani weddings. In Indonesia and in the Philippines, jasmine is often used in religious ceremonies. Of all the flowers that you could name your daughter after, it is the most empowering. It isn’t a surprise that it remained common throughout the last 2 centuries.
14
Leilani
As a feminine given name, Leilani has been fairly popular in the United States lately. Many popular names come from ancient Rome, ancient Greece, or the Bible. However, ours is a world that is increasingly interconnected, and that interconnection brings with it some amazing names. One of these names is Leilani, which comes from Hawaii. It means ‘heavenly flower’, as Hawaii is full of beautiful tropical flowers that could definitely be called ‘heavenly’. Naturally, with such a source, the name comes with many spellings such as Lilyana and Meilani.
13
Camila
This name has an interesting background. It ultimately comes from the Latin word for a youth that serves as an acolyte in Roman religion, and may refer to a huntress who could run so fast that she wouldn’t bend a blade of grass. The French and Spanish picked up the word as a girl’s name from the Latin surname. The English started using it as a girl name in the 16th century, perhaps because there is a Camilla in Virgil’s Aeneid. The name spread through the literary world, showing up as a name for the heroine as early as 1796 and continuing to today. I mean, there is a Muppet named Camilla. This name is already fairly popular, but should rise rapidly beacuse of the Solo X Factor Singer Camila Cabello who made it big in the girl band Fifth Harmony.
12
Layla
Layla originates in Arabic language and means "woman of the night". It has always been a very popular given name in the Arabic world but lately it has become fairly popular in the United States too. It was popularized by the song Layla, written by Eric Clapton and Jim Gordon. According to the writers, the song was inspired by a Persian story about a young man named Majnun who falls madly in love with a beautiful girl named Layla, but isn’t allowed to marry her and so he goes crazy. It was made into a beautiful 12th century poem, too. ‘Layla’ was a good name for a heroine of this poem and song.

Evelyn
It means ‘life’ and ‘light,’ and comes from Ireland. The name was spelled Aibhilín and Eidhleann, and might come from the Old Irish word for ‘radiance’ or ‘beauty’. The British eventually got a hold of the name and changed the spelling. Alternatively, there is an Evelyn from German, meaning little bird, and it could also be from the Hebrew words meaning ‘life-bringer.’ Pick whichever meaning you want for your little Evelyn. Classy and easy to spell, people love it for the timeless sound. Believe it or not, it was traditionally a surname. It then became a boy’s first name, gracing people like Evelyn Baring, the Consul-General of Egypt from 1880 to 1907. But it became more popular as a girl’s name by the 1900s.

Emma
The name comes from the German word ‘erman,’ which means ‘universal’ or ‘whole,’ and it goes back a long way. The first Emma to get her names in the history books was a Viking queen from Normandy who was ruling in 1002 AD. It remained a common name in Europe for centuries, and it was consistently one of the 10 most popular names between the 1880s and the 1910s. The name plummeted in popularity after that, bottoming out at #458 in 1976. It’s been crawling back to its accustomed place ever since then. Whether the name makes you think of the spunky heroine in Jane Austen’s novel, the actress Emma Thompson, or the actress Emma Watson, you have to admit, it’s a catchy name.

Miranda
The name Miranda is derived from the Latin Mirandus which means 'admirable' or 'wonderful.' It was actually created by Shakespeare for the heroine in his 1611 play 'The Tempest.' It didn't, however, become a common English given name until the 20th Century. It's a name which is graceful yet simultaneously mysterious and strong. The majority of us will know Miranda Kerr as Orlando Bloom's ex-wife. But the Australian model has a long history in the modeling industry and holds many accolades to her name. She began modeling when she was just 13, and since 2008 has been consistently ranked as one of the highest-earning models.

Claudia
The name Claudia is the feminine form of Claudius, and it was very rarely used until the 16th Century. It isn't massively common but it is timeless, elegant and strong. I love the German pronunciation of KLOW-dee-a, though the English pronunciation of KLAW-dee-a is definitely favorable too. Claudia originates in Latin language and means "feeble woman". In Romamythology, Claudia was one of the Vestal Virgins, priestess of Vesta, Roman goddess of the hearth. More recently, the name was popularized by Claudia Cardinale, a famous Italian actress, as well as Claudia Schiffer, a German supermodel.

Scarlet
The meaning of the name Scarlett is Red. The origin of the name Scarlett is English. The name/word scarlett is most associated with the deep red color. Common spelling variations include Scarlet and Scarlette. Actress Scarlett Johnsson may be a reason for the popularity boom of this name. In the 1930's, another Scarlett likely affected naming trends: Scarlett O'Hara from the novel and movie Gone With the Wind. Scarlett O'Connor is a popular television character on the show Nashville. The Daughter of Sylvester Stallone is named Scarlett.

Naomi
Naomi is of Hebrew origin and means 'me delight' as well as 'pleasant.' You have to admit, it has a beautiful gentleness to it. In the Bible, Naomi was the mother-in-law of Ruth. The name itself used to be popular in Jewish community, and it wasn't until the Protestant Reformation that it came into more general use. Most likely it was popularized by the fashion model Naomi Campbell. Some common nicknames which I love, include Nay and Nomes (yes, you pronounce it the same as 'gnomes.') There's also Nay, Nao or Nomi.

Madison
Madison originates in English language and means "Matthew's child". It was derived from an English surname, the famous bearer being James Madison, the fourth President of the United States, and as a surname it is used until today. It can also be used as both feminine and masculine given names, currently it is one of the most popular names given to girls. Very probably it was popularized in the 1984 film Splash, where Daryl Hannah plays a mermaid that decides to call herself Madison after seeing the sign of Madison Garden in New York.

Gabriella
Gabriella is the Italian spelling of the Hebrew name Gabrielle, which means ‘God’s bravest woman’ (or something to that effect, at least, being the feminine version of the name of an archangel). The famous people who sport this name probably help its continued climb. For instance, Coco Chanel’s first name was actually Gabrielle, and there is the actress Gabrielle Anwar, who played Fiona Glenanne in Burn Notice. Another boost would be that you can nickname your baby girl ‘Gabby’ if you give her this name.

Serenity
Well, ultimately it comes from the Latin word serenitatem, which meant ‘clearness’ as well as what we think of as peacefulness. A similar word was used as a title for Roman emperors and popes. The French changed it to sérénité and used it to describe peaceful weather in the 1530s. They started applying the word to people in the 1590s and the English picked it up as a name for a girl. Now you, too, can join the tradition if you give this name to your baby girl. Serenity is the name of the spaceship from the show, Firefly, and the movie made from that show. Also, it’s the feeling of being at peace with the world: There is nothing to fight, and the universe is sending its love to you.
