It’s hard to be a girl sometimes. Girls often need to balance their appearance, personality, and interests with the messages they receive about what girls are “supposed” to do. G names for girls can be a struggle too- there have been so many great girl names that start with G that have fallen out of favor over time. For this blog post, we’ll take a look at 12 hard truths about g names for girls and how you can face them!
Truth #12: G Names for Girls are an American Trend
Although there have been plenty of popular girls names that start with the letter “G” in other languages, they’re mostly from English-speaking countries. And while it’s not unusual to see a name like Gabrielle or Glenda used on occasion by people outside the United States, general consensus is that these gnames for girls should be distinctly American first and foremost. We’ve included some helpful tips below to help you find your perfect G name!

Tip #12: Start with the letter G and go from there!
The first step in finding a good name is to make sure you’re starting at the right place. This means that if your favorite girl’s name starts with “G” then it should be easy for you to find more names that start this way- just think of words like Georgia, Gabriella, Gemma or Graciella as some examples. If your favorite girls’ name does not have one of these letters nearby its initial position than continuing on might be difficult because many different cultures use the alphabetical order as an indication of popularity (e.g., A being the most common). It’s still worth checking out further but don’t get discouraged when you encounter a name you don’t like as much.
Tip #13: Be open to different spellings of the same name!
Just because your favorite girls’ name might not be spelled correctly in English does not mean that it is no longer considered a possibility for you and your little one. For example, take Olivia- Ruth seems more popular with this spelling but both versions are still great choices since they come from Latin roots (Olivia comes from “oliva” or olive). This is also true when considering names that have been translated into other languages because often times their phonetic pronunciations will differ slightly from how we know them in America. As long as the meaning remains unchanged, then feel free to adopt any spelling you find!
Tip #14: Study the meaning of a name!
One of the most important things to do when considering names is researching their meanings. By doing this, not only will you know whether or not they are right for your little one (or what qualities that might represent) but also be able to talk about why you chose it in front of others without hesitation. You never want someone else talking about your child and getting incorrect information- so being informed can spare all parties from embarrassing mixups on either end. For example, if people ask how Lola came into existence as an Americanized version of Lolita, then we have some explaining to do since she comes from Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland by Lewis Carroll and has a decidedly different meaning than the original (more innocent).
Or, if we want to name our daughter after my late grandmother, then it’s important that we understand her full name is Gladys Mildred and she means “spear of joy”. This will help us in talking about why such an unusual but meaningful name was chosen.
So without further ado..here are 12 hard truths about G names for girls- including what they mean! It might be some fresh perspective or just more fuel for your own research fire. Either way let’s do this:
