See the top 1,000 popular baby girl names for 2023

Parents looking for the perfect baby girl name are not alone. According to the most recent data from Social Security Administration, 1,779,487 baby girls were born in 2021 — a figure more than 17,000 higher than the previous year.

One of the first things expecting parents might want to establish is the perfect name for their baby girl. Parents researching baby girl names might already have their mind made up, or are seeking out fresh names that are new to them.

These days, parents are opting for a wide range of name selections. Baby naming experts say girl names pulled from both history and headlines are at the top of the list.

According to their most recent data, the SSA reports that Raya, Wrenley, Angelique, Vida and Emberlynn have seen the greatest change in popularity among girl names.

Popular Baby Girl Names

Baby naming expert Sherri Suzanne tells TODAY.com that a top baby name is one that is trending upward, but also has “staying power."

"Popular culture is by far the most common way new names are introduced and spread nowadays," she says. "Celebrities, sports figures or just a person in the news can start a trend overnight.”

For 2023, Suzanne predicts parents of girls will continue to show interest in grandma names with strong sounds like Ruth, Josephine, Eleanor and Eloise.

She says historically underused feminine classics like Lydia, Natalia and Cecilia will also be popular, including “very feminine” choices like Eliana, Alina and Athena.

“River, Blake, Parker and Sloane are attractive gender-neutral names that are growing more popular for girls,” Suzanne says. “And Isla, Nova and Eden are short, modern names that parents continue to favor.”

Suzanne says "familiar, but off-the-radar" names will also be popular for girl babies this year, like Claudia, Astrid and Simone.

“Timeless-but-underused classics are what you may call an ‘anti-trend,’ but represent the most requested name style in my practice,” Suzanne says. “Familiar names that are somewhat ‘off the radar’ excite many parents who seek my assistance.”
