Elven Baby Names

Some beautiful names with an Elven vibe!

Ariadne
A Greek name meaning most holy, Ariadne currently ranks at Number 773. Mythological names lend themselves to the Elven sound as does the spunky nickname Ari.

Eirlys
Eirlys, like many Welsh names, has a mystical fairy-like sound. Eirlys even means snowdrop, which would make for a great Elven surname.

Eirwen
Eirwen is another gorgeous Welsh name, this one is a form of Welsh coinage. Eira, which made my video list could be a charming nickname for Eirwen.

Fauna
Fauna was the name of one of the fairies in Sleeping Beauty, perhaps that’s why this Latin name gives my a mystical vibe. Fauna refers to the animals in a specific area, perfect for a woodland Elf.

Gaia
If Fauna had a sister, she’d probably be Gaia. Gaia is a Greek name meaning mother earth that brings about imagery of lush green lands.

Orlaith
The Irish Orlaith (pronounced Orla) is relatively undiscovered in the United States. Orlaith means golden princess, the perfect fit for Elven royalty.

Sylvie
There is something so sweet about the French Sylvie, and much more youthful than the Latin Sylvia which she stems from. Sylvie means from the forest, perhaps the best fitting meaning to name match up on this list. Sylvie ranks at Number 993.

Twila
I’ve met a cat or two named Twila, and indeed it seems equally suited for a furry friend of pointy eared elf. Twila is of English origins and means woven with double thread.

Rue
Rue has a very whimsical feel, though it means regret. English from a Greek name, Rue was the lovable character in The Hunger Games.

Zinnia
A rarely used flower name, Zinnia gets extra credit for starting with the zesty initial Z. Many flower and nature names could easily fit this category!
