Pretty Girl Names Inspired by Nature
Encompassing from everything from flowers and herbs to gemstones and seasons, the natural world is a huge source of inspiration for pretty girl names. Beautiful plant-inspired names include Violet, Lily, Willow, Jasmine, Flora, Olivia, Ivy, Holly, Hyacinth, Daisy, Saffron, and Rosemary. Stones and gems have also lent their names to monikers including Amber, Ruby, Pearl, Ivory, and Jade. Other pretty nature-based girls names to consider are Brooke, Rayne, Aurora, Dawn, Savannah, and Luna or seasonal names like Summer, Autumn, Winter, January, April, May, and June.
Pretty Middle Names For Girls
Have your daughter's first name picked out but can't decide on a middle name? Rose, Grace, Louise and Marie are all popular pretty middles names. If those don't strike a chord, other middle names mums recommend include Paige, Elizabeth, Emma, Lynn, and Rae.
Pretty Girl Names Starting With "A"
Sometimes parents are drawn to a specific letter. If you're hunting for the perfect "A" name for your daughter, here are some pretty picks other moms love: Arianna, Abigail, Angelina, Amelia, Avery, Ava, Aubrey, Aria, Ashlynn, and Athena.

Glamorous Pretty Girl Names
Trying to find a name that's a little glamorous? Names like Scarlett, Audrey, Bridgette, Penelope, Ava, and Marilyn have all belonged to Hollywood screen sirens. "V" names just have a glamorous ring to them — think Victoria, Vivian, or Valentina.
Ending With "La"
There's something so soft and pretty about girls names that end in a "la" sound. Isabella is particularly popular right now, but we also love Layla, Willa, Isla, Lila, Arabella, Jayla, and Delilah.
Pretty Girl Names Ending with "Ee" Sounds
Everyone's ears are different, however — if you're not partial to names with the -la ending, a bright "ee" sound is another pretty way to go. Some of the "ee"-ending names moms recommended are Hayley, MacKenzie, Leilani, Bree, and Zoe.
