Sweet & Quirky Girl Names

Hello, I am looking for sweet but slightly quirky girl names to add to our list.  What's your favorite quirky girl name? For inspiration think of a little girl w/ two older brothers, Land of Nod catalog,  Loves Birds, Loves Outdoors, Little Miss Sunshine movie, Hello Kitty, pom pom flowers etc!  Current faves in alphabetical order: 

Emma
Elizabeth (NN Birdie or Betty)
Kate (NN Katie, Kat or Kit)
Lucy
Olive
Phoebe
Violet
Wren

And go!

    Why does Kate need a nickname??
    Because she wants it to be quirky?

    I love Alice as a simple and quirky name.

  • I don't see your names as quirky at all. They are all nice, albeit popular.

    Other suggestions:

    Rebecca nn Becky (Rebecca is tame, but Becky has a spunkier feel IMO)
    Kelsey
    Ruth
    Tessa
    Mila
    Penelope nn Penny
    Rachel nn Ray

    Good luck!

    Hmmm, I don't know..

    Daisy
    Valentina
    Margot
    Theodora
    Dorothea
    Wilhelmina

    I'm not sure what constitutes as quirky to other people.  I think that can be loosely interpreted.  

    Also, a second vote for the previously mentioned Clementine.

    I just think it's weird that you've already decided what your daughter will like in life.

    Is it going to be a problem if Kat is a tomboy who only wants to play with transformers?

    Yea, our criteria for a girl name was that it had to work if she either wanted to be a ballerina or a softball player.

    Huh? I just think it's weird that you're assuming things. I like "old lady" names (Carolyn, Margaret, Evelyn)....doesn't mean I think a potential daughter is going to act like an elderly person. It's just a naming style I like. Same with OP, she likes names that are quirky.

    There's a pretty big difference between "I like old people names" (so do I, my girl's Elena Ida) or "I like quirky names" and suggest names for a girl who likes birds, pom poms and Hello Kitty.

    How would one know that one's kid would like birds, pom poms and Hello Kitty? And if that's a naming criteria, what happens when the kid does NOT like birds, pom poms and Hello Kitty? The name suddenly doesn't fit?

    Which is to say, I think it's pretty ridiculous to tailor your kid's name to the kid's potential personality. Pick a name you like, not a name that you think will work for a girly girl.

    Settle down!! Quirky is a style! You are over thinking this.....breathe. Hello kitty, tomboy, birds are just to help spark ideas ( that is how I understand it) . As the mom, she can choose any style she wants.

  • I hope little Kat likes Transformers since she would have 2 older brothers! I think someone didn't read the phrase 'for inspiration' very clearly in my original post! Be curious not judgmental.

    Lucy Elizabeth is our top name - nn Lucy Bird.
    My first thought at Lucy Bird is "She's seriously naming her child after one of LBJ's kids???"  Then I remember that LBJ's girls were Linda Bird and Luci Baines.  Either way, it still makes me think of presidential families.
