Final thoughts on girl names that start with O

Before you make your daughter’s name o-fficial, here are a few questions worth asking yourself:

    1. How often will others assume the wrong spelling of the name? If you go with Oaklee, for example, most people will default to the spelling of Oakley until corrected. Think about whether this may bother your daughter one day.
    2. Will young kids be able to pronounce the name? It’s really common for little ones to have trouble pronouncing letters and sounds such as “R”, “S”, “L”, “Th”, and “Z”. Names like Orly and Odessa might be hard for your daughter and her friends to say for a few years. Again, think about whether this matters to you—it may not.
    3. Do her initials spell anything undesirable? The first initial O is relatively safe (compared to other letters), but you should do a Google search of your baby’s initials before finalizing them.
    4. Is the name going to prompt repeated questions? If you name your daughter October, for example, it’s a safe bet that she will regularly be asked whether she was born in that month.
    5. Is the name too similar to other living family members? You might want to skip the O name Olivia if your daughter’s cousin is named Oliver.

Ultimately, you and your partner should choose whichever girl name that starts with O that makes you the happiest. It’s a very personal decision that only you can make!

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