I’m sorry to bid adieu to Milla, Wren, Lorelei, and Clementine, but as with the boys’ semi-finals, it is easy to appreciate the charms of the names that won. I have a hunch about which name will come out on top … but shhhh … I’m not saying.
Speaking of hunches, usually I can look at the matches and guess which name will win. I’m not always right – but this time, I can’t even guess how either of the semi-final matches will turn out.
The big story for the girls’ Quarter Finals? Cora has proved herself quite the formidable name contender. Even though she came in as the #8 seed, Cora has tidily dispatched Aya in the opening round, and now Milla in the quarter finals, 75% to 25%.

This could be the biggest match-up of the season so far! Graceful, vintage Cora, a name fit for a fictional duchess, takes on Beatrix, a name worn by a former queen of the Netherlands. They’re both such elegant possibilities, and yet neither is overwhelming on a child. Vote for your favorite name – if you can!
I was surprised when Margot bested Elodie in the opening round. Now she’s managed to carry the day over the avian Wren, winning her match 55% to 45%. That’s not a resounding victory, but winning two matches in a row marks Margot as a contender. In the semi-finals she faces the colorful, floral, goddess name Iris. Iris faced off against Lorelei in the Quarter Finals – a tough match. If Iris can win out over Lorelei, she’s definitely able to take on Margot. The only question is whether or not you can choose a favorite!
