Double Letter Names - 2012 Girls


Have you ever considered naming your children with the theme of "double letter names"? Well, there would be a very wide pool for you to choose from if you did so desire. Looking at the Top 1000 for 2012, and assuming I counted correctly, there are 240 girl names with double letters. Out of those, quite a few are different spellings of the same name (there are 184 names after the spellings are combined) and there are quite a few -lynn, -ee, and -elle names. Among those and not, there are some great finds to consider! Here is a list of those that jumped out at me:

Aimee
Anna

Annika
Arabella
Brenna

Millie
Molly
Noelle
Priscilla
Quinn
Rebecca
Reese
Savannah
Scarlett
Shannon
Sienna
Sierra
Stella

I'm sure there are a TON of great double letter names in between the Top 1000 and the bottom of what's beyond the Top 1000. Maybe I will peruse them from time to time. In the meantime, what is your favorite double letter name for a girl?

I will post about the boy double letter names next week!
