If you love all things fantasy — from books and movies to video games and beyond, you may have considered a fantasy-inspired girl name for your baby. Thanks to the emerging popularity of this genre, fantasy names are becoming more and more common. Consider names like Arya, which took off after the premiere of Game of Thrones, or Arwen, which was popularized by J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings series. Names from fantasy books and movies can be an endless list to choose from.

If you’ve been thinking of a fantasy girl name for your little one, you have a lot of choices. We’ve compiled a list of nine beautiful fantasy girl names for your baby that are out of this world and that can help you narrow down your options.

Aurora

Meaning “dawn,” Aurora is well known for being Sleeping Beauty’s given name. It is also the name of the mystical aurora borealis, otherwise known as the Northern Lights, which much of the U.S. was able to witness recently.

Guinevere

The name alone evokes images of fair maidens and fantastical settings and was also the name of King Arthur’s Queen. The name was often translated into Jennifer, but we think Guinevere is a beautiful option for someone looking for a fantasy-inspired name.

Juno

From Latin meaning “youthful” or “queen of the gods,” this name would be ideal for any little girl. Despite the name being around for centuries, it has grown in popularity over the last two decades or so.

Seraphine

A fantastical take on the traditional Sarah, Seraphine is less common than Seraphina, which is also a stunning name option, making it a great name choice for those who want something unique but not unheard of.

Eowyn

Another name popularized in The Lord of the Rings books, Eowyn, pronounced “ay-oh-wyn” is a nontraditional name rooted in the fantasy genre.

Melisande

Another name that gained attention is Melisandre, which is of Old German and Old French origin and means strong in work and brave strength. The fantasy series Game of Thrones featured a character named Melisandre.

Sorsha

Fans of the 1988 movie Willow will recognize the name Sorsha as the name of the princess in the film. Meaning “bright” or “freedom,” this is a beautiful fantasy name for a girl.

Dauphine

Evoking images of royalty, Dauphine is the name you’re looking for if you want a fantasy name with some French flavor.

Luna

Give your little girl the moon with the name Luna, the choice of Chrissy Teigen and John Legend for their eldest daughter.

If traditional names aren’t for you, there are so many fantasy names to choose from. Search through your favorite books and movies to find the perfect name, or use our list for inspiration.

Unisex baby names are gaining in popularity as parents realize they have more options than ever when it comes to naming their baby. Some parents choose a unisex baby name because they love the name regardless of the gender of their baby, while others choose a unisex name because they are looking to distance themselves from those traditional "boy" or "girl" naming conventions.
Why we love unisex names

Although gender reveals are still incredibly popular, choosing a unisex baby name allows parents to give their baby a name they love, regardless of their sex. Many unisex baby names fall into the less traditional category, which is perfect for parents looking for something a little more unique for their child. If you're making a list of potential names for your baby, here are our favorite unisex baby names for consideration.
Atlas
Atlas is the ideal name for any parent who wants their child to travel the world! This name of Greek origin has swiftly begun to climb the ranks of popularity in the U.S. since 2015. Celebrities like Edward Norton and Shay Mitchell have used this unisex name for their children.
Blair
Although Blair originated as a Scottish surname, it has grown popular as a unisex name in North America.
Chase
This name was more popular among boy names, but now Chase is often used by parents looking for a cool, unique unisex name for their daughters. Chase is giving us those athletic vibes.
Dylan
Like Chase, Dylan was once primarily used as a boy name but has grown in popularity in recent years as a common choice for girls. The Welsh name means "son of the sea," but we can all agree that this is the perfect unisex name for any water baby.

Kai, often seen as a form of Kaia, is a name of Hawaiian origin dominating unisex name charts. It's simplistic but far from basic and is a beautiful choice for any parent looking for a dreamy unisex name.

Mackenzie is another name of Scottish origin that has been adopted from the surname and is almost equally popular as a name for both boys and girls.
