50 of the most unusual and cool girls names you may not have heard before

When we’re looking at lists of baby names, too often, we see the same ones cropping up again and again. You can just tell which ones are the popular ones, the ones that there will be ten of in one classroom in about five years’ time. They’re pretty, they’re cutesy, they’re classic – but they’re just not quite what you’re looking for.

Too often, little girl’s name lists are filled with undeniably beautiful names, but they’re the same names over and over. When you’re a parent-to-be wo wants something a little different, a little more edgy or unusual for your little girl, they can be hard to find.

The diversity in boy’s names is staggering, so it seems unfair when girls can’t get as wide an array of choices for strong and cool names. We’ve put together a list of our edgiest and coolest choices of girl’s names so you can have your pick, from Anais to Xanthe!
