Founder Juliette Gordon Low organized the first Girl Scout troop on March 12, 1912. Juliette is a French name meaning youthful. Juliette is currently 255 in popularity, just a smidge more common than Juliet at 258. There are many actresses named Juliette, including Juliette Binoche and Juliette Lewis.
Gordon is another way to honor Juliette Gordon Low. A Scottish surname meaning great hill, Gordon peaked in the 1930s and is currently ranked at Number 935. Perhaps the popularity of Jordan has affected the popularity of Gordon. Gordon may remind you of restaurateur Gordon Ramsay or Lizzie’s sidekick, David “Gordo” Gordon, on the show Lizzie McGuire.

Scout is a spunky word name that many associate with the lovable character in Harper Lee’s iconic novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Scout also brings to mind images of camping and exploring, perfect for a little Girl or Boy Scout. Last year 205 girls and 54 boys were named Scout.
Daisies are the youngest level of Girl Scouts. Daisies get their name from founder Juliette Gordon Low, who went by the nickname Daisy. A cheery flower name, Daisy is currently Number 180. Actor Meg Ryan and Chef Jamie Oliver each have daughters named Daisy.
