Some Insanely Cute Baby Girl Names

I love names. After I did some heavy research for my dorm, I discovered many names from the early 1900s that I hadn’t heard before.  A lot of vintage baby names are also coming back in style, so keep your ears peeled.

Anyway, here goes!

Adelaide 

A short from of this name could by Addy/Addie but I love the diminutive Della.

Adella

Agatha

A short form of this name could be Aggie.

Alma

Amelia

Amelie

Anastasia

While this name is mostly shortened to Ana/Anna, diminutives like Tasia or Stacia could be used.

Anne

An interesting diminutive of this name is Nannie.

Birdie

Upon my research, I found that Birdie is a diminutive of Bertha or Bridget.

Caroline

Catherine/Katherine

A diminutive of this name could be Wren.

Charlotte

The diminutives of this name are some of my favorites: Lottie or Lotta.

Clara

Dell

Effie/Effy

Eleanor

A short form of this name could be Elea and a diminutive could be Nell.

Elizabeth

Elizabeth has a lot of short forms and diminutives. We all know Eliza, Beth and even Lizzie. But some other diminutives are Busy, Bessie, Elsie, Elspeth and Elspet.

Ellery

Ellie

Also a diminutive of Elizabeth, Ellie is also a common diminutive of other El- names such as Eleanor.

Elma

Esme

Essie/Essie

This name is a diminutive of Estelle and Esther.

Esther

A diminutive of this could be Esta.

Euphemia

Fannie/Fanny

I have seen Fay/Faye used as a diminutive for this name.

Fern

Flannery

Flora

Florence

Diminutives of this name include other favorites of mine: Florrie/Florry and Flossie.

Gemma/Jemma

Georgia, Georgie and Georgiana

A cute diminutive of this name that I definitely did not hear from Gilmore Girls 😉 is GiGi.

Gertrude

A common diminutive of this name is Gertie.

Hattie

Hazel

Heidi

Heidi is actually a German diminutive of the name Adelheid.

Henrietta/Henriette

Shortened forms like Etta and Ettie are equally cute as the diminutive Hettie. If you like the idea of boy names for girls one could use the nickname Henry/Henri.

Hilda

While this name screams old fashioned, the diminutive Hilde/Hildie is not.

Hillie

Honoria

Pronounced Honor-ria, I first heard this name on the Vampire Diaries. Three points if you can name the reference Nina Dobrev needed to pronounce it (as was evident in the season 1 blooper reel.)

This is a Hungarian name I stumbled upon by accident.

Iola

Ione

A diminutive of this unique name is Nonie.
