Sharing is caring!


When I was pregnant, I was sure I was going to have a little girl so I started searching far and wide for baby girl names with cute nicknames since I was wondering what is the cutest name for a girl (with a good nickname of course)?

Turns out, I had a boy! But, I did end up with quite a nice list of girl baby names (with super cute nicknames) so I figured I would share with all the mama’s to be that are searching for the perfect baby girl name.

I think it could be kind of fun to have a sophisticated girl name (for when they get older) but still have a cute nickname that they love too!

It’s always a great thing to have options for when they get older and maybe want to use a more formal names for their resumes or something like that.

I know, I know, I’m getting ahead of myself. What can I say? I’m a planner.

Tips For Choosing A Baby Girl Name With A Cute Nickname

I think picking a baby name is one of the most fun but also most difficult parts in the beginning with baby.

A name has to be just right! It really does tell a lot about a person.


Don’t be swayed by passing trends- this is the name your little one has to live with for the rest of their life- something that’s trendy now could die hard sooner or later- so unless the name really speaks to you- I would avoid trendy names that probably wont’ stick around long

Find something meaningful– one surefire way to know you’ll love the name you choose is if its already associated with something you love or something that has a special meaning for you.

It could be something like your culture or heritage. It could be something that reminds you of a loved one or a fond memory.

Think about the meaning- sometimes you just fall in love with what a name means and then it just fits. Think about the origins and meanings of the name. Keep in mind there are often multiple meanings depending on origin so if you don’t like one- there’s probably another.

Think about nicknames– the whole point of this post was to make you really think about nicknames. More often than not, kids get called by their nicknames more than their formal names so it’s important to love the nicknames associated with the name you’ve picked.

Consider the spelling– sometimes we want something unique but maybe not too unique (or weird) so consider alternate spellings. A classic baby name doesn’t always have to be boring. You can spice things up with a unique spelling that could give rise to a lovable nickname.

Uncommon Baby Girl Names With Cute Nicknames


Hopefully, you found some great baby name inspiration for girl names with equally cute nicknames. Whether you go with one of the classics or something more unique- just make sure it feels right!

Say it out loud a few times and see how it feels.

We had the hardest time coming up with names for our guy. We came up with 1 option early on that was based on my husband’s grandpa’s name and figured we’d add to the list as we went.

But nothing else felt right.

When you know, you know.

Trust your gut!

    I have several family members and friends who are pregnant and we don’t know the gender as yet. I’ll share this with them. Hopefully, I’ll have my own Keegan or Aria one day too.

    Such a great list. I don’t really have a nickname. Neither do my girls.
    I kinda wish we did sometimes.
