Finding the perfect name to fit your adorable little baby can be daunting, for sure — but it can also be a lot of fun. What's sweeter than parsing through baby-name lists and dreaming about your future child? Will they be a Juniper, an Alice, or a Noa? Which name will best fit their personality — as a new baby, a little kid, and eventually an adult? Is there a special loved one your baby's name can honor? What will it be like to call out this name on the playground — to identify yourself as so-and-so's parent? Sure, there's a lot of pressure. But there's also a lot of joy.
Of course, it can be overwhelming. If you google "baby girl names," for instance, you'll be confronted with thousands of results. So if you've been struggling to find that perfect baby name, look no further. We've put together the best possible starting place: an extensive list of some of our favorite names that are as cute and special as your cute-as-a-button baby girl is sure to be. Whether you're looking for a unique name, an aesthetic name, a name with a meaning or origin that resonates with you, or all of the above, there's definitely a cute name or two on this list that you are going to love. (Most of these names are unisex, and if you're looking for a more traditionally masculine name, we put together a similar list here.)
