It’s the fourteenth letter of the alphabet, and the tenth most popular first letter for girls names in the US as of 2022. That puts it right in the middle of the pack, well behind the chart-topping letters like A (Ava and Amelia) and E (Evelyn and Emma), but well ahead of letters like F and W. It’s easy to think of N names for girls, but they’re not exactly everywhere – the most popular pick – Nora – stands at a modest #28 as of 2022.
Still N baby name choices for our daughters remain a diverse and intriguing pool.
Nancy has grown up from girl detective to pop singer to powerful woman; the sensational rise of Nevaeh remains one of the more polarizing name stories of the early twenty-first century; and names like Nora have become culture-spanning chameleons that fit just about anywhere.
Whether your tastes run to traditional favorites or unique girl names, the wildly unexpected or the oh-so buttoned-up, this list of girl names starting with N could satisfy.
