100 Hispanic Baby Girl Names That Are Popular and Unique

Welcome, Alana, Abril and Amalia!

There are lots of factors that go into choosing the "right" baby name. Do you want something trendy or unusual? Do you want to find something new, or go with an old family name?

One way that some parents choose to honor their heritage is by picking a a name that comes from their culture. If you're in that mode and are looking for Hispanic girl names, there's good news: It's not hard to come up with a long list of beautiful choices.

Some are already popular, climbing the lists of the most popular names in the United States. Others are gaining steam with Spanish-speaking parents in the U.S., but haven't become so common that they're rising to the top of the most-popular lists. Still other names are popular in different Spanish-speaking countries, but haven't found their way to the U.S yet, so you'll snag them before they're listed on every daycare cubby in every school across the country. No matter which one you pick, you'll have a beautiful name for your baby girl.

These are already some of the most popular baby girl names in the country.

When it comes to anything baby-name related, the foremost authority is the Social Security Administration, which keeps track of the use of baby names in the United States.

  2. Ava
  3. Isabella
  4. Camila
  5. Luna
  6. Emily
