My Five Favorite 4-Letter Baby Girl Names

Before we jump into our list of 200, let’s take a deep dive into my 5 favorites!


Origin: Greek

Meaning: Glory

This name just screams main character energy to me. After all, it is a version of Kleopatra (Queen of Egypt) and Clio (the Greek goddess) giving it some pretty powerful history.

I love that it’s short, sweet, and still packs a punch!


Origin: French

Meaning: To Love or Emerald

Twilight fans are already familiar with this name as the matriarch of the beloved vampire family is named Esme. I do not happen to be a big Twilight fan, but I am a BIG fan of French names. They make me swoon and have a certain romance to them.


Origin: Greek

Meaning: The Moon

If you love the extremely popular Luna but want something different, Sena is a beautiful choice!

When I first heard this name a few years ago, I didn’t love it but somehow it has grown on me immensely. Now it’s one of my absolute favorites! I think it’s so beautiful and unique while still being easy to recognize/pronounce.


Origin: English

Meaning: Small Bird

If you are looking for a short gender-neutral name, I absolutely love Wren. It’s a name with a lot of history going back to the middle ages of England and Irish folklore. It’s such a strong name and I love that I can picture a baby, child, and adult as Wren.

It has been steadily gaining popularity but isn’t so popular that your little one will end up in class with 3 other Wrens, which is also important to me.


Origin: Latin

Meaning: Little Star, often short for Estrella or Esther

While this isn’t a name you hear too often right now, it does have the potential to skyrocket in popularity as Chrissy Teigen and John Legend recently named their youngest daughter Esti Maxine. And Swifties are probably familiar with the name from the HAIM-inspired Evermore track, “No Body, No Crime”.

All that being said, it is one of my absolute favorites. It has that grandma-name-made-cool vibe and pairs beautifully with so many middle names.
