100 Stylish Baby Girl Names with Meanings

Now that the little one is on its way to announcing itself to the world, you must be eager to settle for that perfect name. Of course, you don’t want that typical name for your baby but one that will be easy to pronounce, spell and sound like music to the ears. Unique names that have meanings are quite popular with the millennial parents. But, also remember that a lot goes into choosing a name for your baby.

Family customs and religion have a powerful influence on how a baby’s name is chosen. Thankfully, Indian tradition and heritage provide a vast repertoire of names which are relevant in the modern world too. Since your little one will be carrying this name all her life, it is important to choose a name carefully. People often judge a person by his or her name and it is our name that travels ahead of us and hence should have a distinguished sound to it.

As parents, your children will hold you responsible for the name given to them, so it is wise to pay a good deal of attention to the name that you would be choosing for your little one. Ensure that you choose a name that stays true with time, has a personal meaning and essence for you, at the same time, suits the quirks of your little girl.
