If you’ve got a Southern belle on the way, or if you just want to infuse a little country charm into your daughter’s name- this list of Southern baby girl names is for you!
True, I’m from New England. But having lived in the south for four years during college, I’ve met my fair share of country girls. One thing they had in common is their regional pride. Whether they were glitzy pageant girls or rough-and-tough cowgirls, they all identified as Southern girls first.
If you’ve got Southern pride, you’ll love these name choices for your little girl.
Southern Place Names
Directly inspired by the South, these girl names come from U.S. cities and states and pay homage to that unique region of the country.
Timeless/Vintage Country Names
Think old school cowgirl names for this category of vintage country names. Different from old fashioned baby names, these have a distinct Southern flair. They could be your grandma’s name, but they are more likely to be that cute cowgirl character on a TV show or movie.
Rustic preppy names
Looking for that upscale Southern charm? These names have an upper class, preppy edge to them. These are the names that look like they should be monogrammed onto Pottery Barn everything.
(And if you like those upper class names, check out the list of preppy names for boys that would be make great sibling pairs with these names.)
