For those who are expecting or thinking about having a baby, the thought of baby names has mostly likely crossed your mind.
Choosing baby names is not an easy process, all parents want to make sure they are giving their child a name that is fitting and proper to that child.
Girls names can be overwhelming to choose from but a selection of baby names every year prove to be the most popular. Looking at trends from last year and moving into 2009, the following baby girl names will most likely prove to be popular girl names.
The origin of the name is Italian and the meaning is a devotion to God. The name has gained popularity in part due to famous celebrities naming their daughters with this lovely name.
This origin of the name is Latin and the meaning is like a bird. I am particularly fond of this name because it is not only a quick spell with only 3 letters but I also think it is quite beautiful.
The origin of the name is Hebrew and the meaning is woman from Magdala. Every time I see this name, it brings back fond childhood memories for me and time spent reading the Madeline books.
