"Rare" N Girl Names



Nell

  • Meaning: Diminutive form of Ellen or Helen; bright, shining one
  • Origin: English 
  • Siblings: Evie and Theo

I enjoy the name Nell greatly. To me it is the cutest little girl nickname that can grow nicely with her. Some of my favorite full names for it are Penelope, Eleanor, and Cornelia. I would prefer it spelled Nelle, which is a less common spelling of the name. You could also use the name Nella, which I love even more than Nell.

Niamh (NEEV)

  • Meaning: Bright 
  • Origin: Irish 
  • Siblings: Aoife and Niall

Niamh is the Irish spelling of the name but you can also spell it Neve. I love this name but I'm too afraid that it would never be pronounced correctly in the United States. The meaning is very nice and cute. I always get happy when names have good meanings. If anyone is brave enough to use Niamh let me know!

Norma

  • Meaning: Rule 
  • Origin: Latin 
  • Siblings: Doris and Ralph

Norma is one of those vintage names that I just can't see coming back into popularity. It sounds very old lady to me. Plus with todays popular names it sounds extremely similar to Nora. I almost mistakes it for Nora at first. Now putting Norma in the middle name spot would be golden!

My Thoughts
I love the name Pearl so much and I used to have it in the middle name spot. Recently I have been thinking of using it again as a middle name and have it paired with Nicolette. Pearl is such a vintage name. Its so sweet and girly.

Reason It's Name of the Week 
I just recently joined a sorority and our jewel is the pearl. Since the sorority is a big part of my life now I was thinking of how I could honor it and the name Pearl came to mind.
