Final thoughts on girls’ names that start with F

There you have it: a whole bunch of fashionable F names to choose from!

As you can see, there aren’t a lot of super popular names that start with F, but don’t let that keep you from choosing one for your daughter.

In case you want a stranger’s opinion… here’s mine:

  • I’d skip the following “F” names: Felicia (bye Felicia!), Frida (reminds me of the brand Frida Baby), and Fannie (reminds me of Fannie Mae for mortgage financing and also means ‘rear end’).
  • My favorites on this list are Finley and Farrah.

Before you make any final decisions, make sure you’re comfortable with the name’s meaning and double check that your baby’s initials don’t spell anything undesirable. Be realllly careful if you choose a middle name starting with a vowel.

Congratulations and good luck choosing the perfect F name for your baby girl!
