Baby Girl Names Starting with C

There are two trends that jumped out at me as I was putting together this list of baby girl names starting with C.

First, there are a whole lot of C names that, in my opinion, are past their prime. Interestingly, some of these are actually quite popular right now—Caroline, Cecilia, and Celeste, for example.

The second thing I noticed is that there are some C names that were traditionally given to boys that are shockingly popular for girls. Seeing that Carter for a girl is more popular than Carly, for example, really surprised me.
