However, sweet baby girl names are so fun. Maybe because I have two sweet girls of my own and enjoyed naming them so much. But I think my favorite part was understanding those sweet baby names can also have strong meanings too!

This list shares the most popular baby girl names that have been trending for over a decade with no signs of slowing down. I’ve included their name meanings just for fun!

Top 10 Popular Girl Names and Meanings

Emma – An English name derived from the Old German for “whole” or “universal,” popular since the 19th century.

This name seems to have replaced in popularity the name Emily which was trending in the decade prior!

Olivia – It’s a feminine form of Oliver, meaning “olive tree.”

Isabella – A variation of Isabel, itself a variation of Elizabeth, meaning “devoted to God” in Hebrew. 

This is such a sweet and romantic baby girl name which is probably good reason for its continued popularity.

Sophia – From the Greek for “wisdom.” The name was used by European royalty in the Middle Ages

This is one of my favorite girl names because I love the idea of calling my daughter “wisdom.”

Ava – A variation of Eve. May be from the Latin “avis,” meaning “bird.”

This name was actually voted as the #1 baby girl name expected to trend in 2019 by Baby Center.

Madison – From Madde, a medieval girls’ name short for Madeleine or Maud.

This name is perfect if you love calling your child by sweet nicknames like Maddie.

Amelia – A blend of the medieval names Emilia and Amalia. In Latin, it means “industrious” and “striving.” Its Teutonic meaning is “defender.”

Here’s another girl name with a strong meaning!

Mia –  Its Latin origins mean “mine” or “wished-for child.” 

What a beautiful meaning this name has.

Evelyn – May be a combination of the names Eve (connected with the Hebrew for “life” or “living”)

This is a great name that can work great for both girls and boys.
