Rare Classy Girls Names

RareClassyheader

Emma, Charlotte, Amelia, Ava.. there are so many beautiful and classy names taking over in popularity. I love this trend and so today I think we should look at some equally lovely and classy options that aren’t currently in the U.S. Top 1,000.

Audra
The perfect alternative to the ladylike Audrey is Audra, and English name meaning noble strength. The lovely songstress Audra McDonald is a great namesake.

Beatrix
Much less popular than Beatrice, Beatrix is a Latin name with the gorgeous meaning she who brings happiness. It also has the great Beatrix Potter association.

Cordelia
A strong name and personal favorite, Cordelia is rich in history. It may be Latin or Celtic meaning heart or daughter of the sea. Classy nickname options include Cora and Delia.

Flora
Sister to more popular Cora and Nora, the Latin Flora has a darling vintage vibe and means flower. Flora was the name of one of the little fairies in Sleeping Beauty.

Moira
An Irish form of the classic Mary, meaning bitter, Moira has a charm and silent strength on her own. Moira always reminds me of the character Wendy Moira Angela Darling from Peter Pan.

Odette
Ette names just scream classy to me and how fun is that O initial? French from a German name Odette means wealthy. Jared and Genevieve Padalecki named their daughter Odette Elliott last year.

Tabitha
I’m always perplexed by how low Tabitha ranks. An Aramaic name meaning gazelle, it’s time to bring back Tabitha. You could use the classic nickname Beth or the quirky cute Tibby!

Theodora
Theodore has gained attention but his sister Theodora, the feminine form of the Greek name meaning gift or God, is still quite underused. Thea and Teddy sure do make for charming nicknames.
