10 Great Baby Girl Names Inspired By Children's Stories
Okay, this is one of my favourites. Roald Dahl created a character that used her amazing abilities to help people, how admirable is that? I love this name because it can be shortened to Tilly (adorable!).
Charlotte’s Web by EB White tells the story of a little pig called Wilbur and how his unlikely friend Charlotte, a spider, could help to make a difference even though she is only small. Definitely a tale for those who want to inspire their children to reach for the stars no matter how small they are, not to mention the fact that Charlotte can be shortened to Charlie which is super cute for a girl.
Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is an amazing story of imagination, discovery, and nonsense which sums up the early childhood years perfectly. Who doesn’t remember the white rabbit and of course the mad hatter and his wonderfully weird tea party!
This classic series by Johanna Spyri is a favourite of many growing up. Heidi lives with her grandfather in the mountains, where she meets Clara and Peter who help her to read, write and have adventures. A feel good story with a gorgeous name!
This name from The Borrowers by Mary Norton is so cute! A story of little people who beat the odds and achieve greatness in spite of their size and reputation!
Abi Elphinstone's character Eska in Sky Song is a little girl who saves her kingdom from the wicked Ice Queen with the help of her friend Flint and eagle Balapan. Magical!
The Far Away Tree by Enid Blyton is a tale of adventure, friendship, and possibilities. Totally feel good storyline and Bessie is a gorgeous name don’t you think?
The heroine of His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, Lyra is a sparky girl who goes on all sorts of adventures, to rescue children who have been snatched by 'the gobblers' and taken to the arctic for experimentation. Definitely a modern heroine.
I love this one from Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh. The female version of Harry/Harold and has always been popular in the UK but it’s definitely about time it made its way over the pond!
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans follows the adventures of the youngest and smallest of 12 orphan girls in the care of Ms. Clavel. Wouldn’t it be an adorable name and even cuter when it's shortened to Maddie.
