What Makes A Cute Name?
There’s no hard and fast rule as to what really makes a name cute. It can be the way it rolls off the tongue (names that end with -ie or -y, or -elle for example!), or what it means. Usually, names that are considered cute are traditionally associated with little girls.
However, while it’s tempting to choose super cutesy names, remember that your little girl will eventually grow up! Keep in mind that she might be a CEO, lawyer, or doctor someday, so don’t go overboard! If you really want a cutesy name, use it as a middle name instead and pair it with a more traditional name.
Cute Baby Girl Names
Without further ado, here’s our A to Z list of pretty baby girl names and their meanings!
