Last Names as First Names? | 10 Darling Baby Girl Names

1. Madison

A cute English name meaning “Strong/Fighter”, could be shortened to Maddie which is even cuter!

2. Cassidy

A beautiful Irish name meaning “Clever”.

3. McKenzie

I like this because it is so unusual but probably needs careful consideration if you have a surname that starts with Mc. It has Scottish origins and means “Child of the wild leader”.

4. Everly

How cute is this? Perfect for most surnames and would also work double-barrelled (i.e. Everly-Jane). An Old English name meaning “From the boar meadow”.

5. Kelly

A very Irish name meaning “Bright headed”.

6. Cameron

Obviously best known for Hollywood’s Cameron Diaz, this is a Scottish name meaning “Crooked River”.

7. Elliott

Made popular for girls after Scrubs came out, it is a Greek form of the Hebrew name Elijah meaning “Jehovah is God”.

8. Ellis

This is super-cute but you might not want to pair it with a surname like Ireland (for obvious reasons). A short and sweet medieval name meaning “Kind and Benevolent”.

9. Lennox

My absolute favourite of the girl names, inspired by the legend that is Annie Lennox. Meaning “Elm Field”, Lennox is a Scottish name.

10. Harper

The youngest Beckham, Harper is an English name meaning “Minstrel”. I think it goes really well with Irish surnames…can’t you just picture little Harper Doyle or Harper McDonald?
