From classic Sarah to trending Stevie, there’s no shortage of appealing possibilities. After all, the letter S ranks fourth for girls’ names, behind A, E, and M.
Part of that popularity is the one-two punch of Sophia and Sofia, among the most popular names for girls around the world. Now Sophie has also joined the US Top 100, making it even more of a dominant sound.
But S names can be distinctive and different, too. This letter gives us everything from surnames Sutton and Sloane to vintage delights like Sadie and Susanna.
One S name to watch? Simone. Following the staggering achievements of Simone Biles in 2021 – she’s the most decorated American gymnast of all time – it could prove inspiring to parents.
