101 Creative Long Names for Girls That Are Worth Every Syllable

From the very popular to the totally unique, and everything in-between

When it comes to the most popular baby names, for a while, the trend was to make them shorter. Quartz published a story about the "rise of the four-letter baby name," and the popularity of names like Cora and Luna seemed to prove the right.

But as with all things, baby name trends are cyclical, and it's looking more and more like that trend is reversing. Name lists are being filled with seven-letter-and-up, multi-syllable names that trip off the tongue like a song. If you're looking for long baby names for girls, we've dived into the data to find out which names are popular, which are up-and-coming and which ones are totally unique.
