What are the top 10 prettiest girl names?
Linguists have been trying to find out for some time why some words just sound more beautiful to human ears.
It turns out we tend to like short vowel sounds, certain consonant sounds (like ‘L’ and ‘S’), and a first syllable emphasis. We’re also fans of words with three syllables.

And then, of course, the definition of “sweet girl’s name” differs from mama to mama.
It’s all a matter of personal taste. If a name has a special meaning to you, that can play a part in how pretty it sounds to your ears.
With all that in mind, let’s start with names that are popular right now:
- Olivia. The most popular baby girl name in 2020, Olivia means ‘olive tree’ in Latin. With its sweet sound, it’s not hard to see why so many people find it adorable.
- Ava. If you’re looking for short and sweet baby girl names, this one tops our list. Ava is a Latin origin name and means ‘bird’.
- Sophia or Sofia. This beautiful name is of Greek origin and means ‘wisdom.’
- Amelia. This name means ‘work,’ and comes packed with so many sweet diminutives — Amy, Emma and Emily, to name a few.
- Isabella. This lovely girl’s name means ‘God is my oath’ and has really grown in popularity over the years. It can also be shortened to Bella, which means ‘beautiful’ in Italian. Does it get any prettier than that?!
- Mia. Another short and sweet name, Mia means ‘mine’ in Italian. But that’s not all. From its Egyptian origins, it means ‘beloved’.
- Harper. Originally used as a surname, this fairly new first name is already pretty popular. It simply means ‘one who plays a harp’ — and may be a particular hit with those who are fans of the famous novelist, Ms. Lee.
- Luna. Short, sweet, and goddess-like? Check, check and check. Luna was the Roman moon goddess and it’s no surprise this celestial name is topping name lists right now.
- Ella. A simple, feminine name, Ella literally means ‘she’ or ‘her’ in Spanish.
