Top 50 Most Popular and Luckiest Names For Girls, According To Astrology

1. Bedisa

Bedisa is derived from the Georgian word ‘bedi’, which means ‘fate or destiny’. This gentle and distinctive name, heard widely in several cultures, falls into the category of names that are too popular and too unusual at the same time. Naming the daughters Bedisa is a lovely way for mommies and daddies to place their hopes and dreams for their children.

2. Dalia

In Lithuanian language, Dalia is the name of the goddess of fate, childbirth, and weaving, and her name means ‘fate or luck’. Goddess Dalia’s primary concern was material wealth and its proper distribution. She had the power to take and give the properties and material goods as deemed fit. The name was further popularized by the Spanish character Dalia played by Mexican actress Yolanda Andrade. And it’s an excellent alternative to Dahlia as well.

3. Destiny

The straightforward vocabulary name Destiny, meaning ‘fate or luck’, comes from the Latin word ‘destinare’ meaning ‘to determine’. This is a derivative of ‘stare’, which means ‘to stand’. The moniker has been used as a given name for girls since the 20th century. In fact, in 2010, Destiny was the 9th most popular name in the African-American community, along with Alyssa.

4. Evangeline

Evangeline, meaning ‘bearer of good news’, is also a way of saying luck. This fanciful derivation of the Latin word ‘evangelium’ has had its own streak of luck in the recent years. The name came into life via American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his poem “Evangeline, A Tale of Acadie”. But it fell out of favor in the 20th century and stayed in hibernation for 40 years. But the name returned triumphantly in 2006, when actress Evangeline Lilly came into the spotlight.

Evangeline is a romantic old name enjoying a major comeback, thanks to its religious overtones, Eva's popularity, and the star of the TV megahit Lost, Evangeline Lilly. Evangelia and Evangelina — two variants of Evangeline — are sure to tag along for the ride.

Evangeline was introduced to the English-speaking world by Longfellow in his hugely popular eponymous narrative poem, and can also be found in Uncle Tom's Cabin (it was Little Eva's full name), as well as two novels by Evelyn Waugh. More recently, there were Evangelines in the films Nanny McPhee and Disney's The Princess and the Frog.

5. Fausta

Fausta, meaning ‘fortunate’, until now heard in the Italian and Hispanic communities, has begun to make an impact in America as well. The name has been slipping down the charts, probably because of its putting off association and even increased competition with other ‘a’ ending names, but there’s no denying that as a name Fausta is fanciful, exotic, and original.

6. Faustina

Faustina, meaning ‘good luck’, is one of the most uncommon names we’ve heard in the recent times. A name with old roots, Faustina was initially given to boys who enjoyed favorable conditions in their lives, simply put, someone who has been lucky. The trend of using Faustina for girls began from the Latin speaking countries.

7. Fayola

If you’re looking for a name with style and history and is non-existent in the US? Then look no further than Fayola, an African-Yoruba name, meaning ‘lucky or good fortune’. The favorable etymology of this name has given it over 2000 years of usage.

8. Felice

Pronounced as ‘fa-Leech-ay’, sounds appealing even after years of usage. Felice is one of the Italian names meaning lucky. It’s a name with several interests; it’s literary, poetic, and utterly pretty. The moniker is so beautiful that we can’t help but picture a beautiful woman in it. But the best part is that Felice is exotic underused and unpretentious.

9. Felicia

Felicia, an accessible, lacy, and delicate virtue name, hugely popular in the Hispanic community, would spread cheer and warmth in your daughter’s life. The name has been climbing the popularity charts for a few decades, but got further notice via Felicia Day, the American actress. It also has a badass touch, considering it’s the real name of Black Cat, a famous Marvel Comics character.

10. Clover

Felicity, meaning ‘good fortune’, reached the peak of its popularity in 1999 when it featured in a television show. Yes, it was used before that as well, but not with enough frequency to feature in the top 1000 list. The name is still underused, considering it is positioned #666 in the Social Security Administration list.

Clover is a girl’s name of British origin, meaning “meadow flower.” Inspired by nature, this name could be perfect for a baby who blossoms to life in the spring, just on time for St. Patrick's day. A symbol of good luck, the verdant flower is often associated with the luck of the Irish and may bring just that to this little girl’s life. This modern take on the classic floral names of times gone by might also present an ideal way to pay homage to the past while embracing the promise of the future.

11. Fortunata

Fortunata, meaning ‘fortune or luck’, is a name brimming with good vibes. It’s sure to make the wearer feel good. There are a couple of real and pop cultural bearers of this name, for instance, St. Fortunata, the 4th-century martyr, and Maria Fortunata Viti, the beatified Italian nun. It’s also the name of Trimalchio’s wife in the 1st-century novel, “The Satyricon”.

12. Fortune

Not every parent is drawn to vocabulary name, but there’s certainly a market for them as fun and whimsical ways to name a child. So this contemporary sounding word name, based on the goddess of good luck and fertility, is best used in the middle spot.

13. Halona

Halona is an unusual and resonant baby name, meaning ‘happy fortune’. It is still unclear what spurred the sudden usage of Halona. We guess it has something to do with the trend favoring Native American names. Its namesake is Halona King, the American Indie singer. Lona would be a chic nickname for Halona.

14. Kiaria

Kiara, a Japanese name meaning ‘fortunate’, sounds exquisite, but can be confused with Kiara or Kiera. Also, it has the beautiful three-syllable sound, which we cannot get enough of.

15. Lakshmi

Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of beauty, charm, grace, and prosperity. No wonder her name means ‘lucky omen’. Lakshmi, as a moniker is an embodiment of charm and grace and would suit well on girl of any ethnicity, not just Indian. It’s simple, crisp, fancy, but not overstated.

16. Machiko

If you want a cross-cultural name for your daughter, pick, Machiko, which means ‘fortunate child’. With such a beautiful meaning, we don’t think any parent would decline this name. And it’s clearly not in danger of being overused anytime soon. So Machiko might be the one if you like original, yet traditional names.

17. Moira

Moira, the anglicized form of Maire coincides with Greek word Moira, which means ‘fate or destiny’. It’s the name of one of the three female personifications of destiny in the Greek Mythology. Older generation might remember this name as the beautiful red-haired ballerina Moira Shearer in the film “The Red Shoes”.

18. Ottilie

Ottilie, meaning ‘fortunate in battle’, is an elegant name heard mostly amongst upper crust British family. Even though the name has German roots, Ottilie looks and feels French, primarily because of its delicate sound. This unique name also has several references. It’s the name of a principal character in “Elective Affinities”. It’s also the name of the protagonist in John Wyndham’s “Random Quest”. Tillie and Lottie would make funky nicknames for Ottilie.

19. Phylicia

Phylicia, the updated version of Felicia, meaning ‘luck’, is a multifaceted name choice. It’s interesting, off-beat, magical, and has an international appeal. It’s a shame that Phylicia is ignored by a large number of parents today. Besides, it’s hard to know where this name will go from here as it hasn’t been around long enough for the experts to determine its staying power. Its famous bearer is Phylicia Allen Rashad, the American actress.

20. Sadiya

Sadiya, meaning ‘lucky or fortunate’, is one of the eminently used Arabic names in Muslim countries. It hasn’t reached the top 100 American baby name list, probably because the ending ‘iya’ is becoming too trendy and overused. But we think Sadiya is cute, unpretentious, simple, and energetic. It has undeniable sassy appeal as well.

21. Serendipity

The word Serendipity, meaning ‘luck or chance’, was coined by Horace Walpole in his fairytale, “The Three Princes Of Serendip”. There’s even a character named Serendipity in “Finding Serendipity”. The name did descend the charts at the turn of last century, but the charmer that it is, it never really went completely out of style. Serendipity sounds stylish, and demands not to be shortened, but if you want, you can shorten it to Serene.

22. Seven

Seven is considered one of the luckiest numbers. Hinduism talks of seven powers, the Jewish religion has seven blessings, Islam has seven heavens, and Christianity has seven churches. David Beckham and Erykah Badu picked this name for their children. Seven is also the middle name of the son of Blackhawks hockey player, Brent Seabrook. You can say Seven is in its full swing right now!

There is a strong connection between the number seven and many religions around the globe. Lucky number 7 is even the basis for many myths and folklore. Ancient beliefs from around the world believed that the seventh son of the seventh son would be gifted with magical powers (both good and evil). In the Bible, scholars claim that God created the world in six days and used the seventh day to rest. Because of this, the number seven is used to illustrate an idea of completeness throughout the Bible.

In both Islam and Judaism, there are seven heavens. Muslim people walk around the Kaaba seven times while making the pilgrimage to Mecca. Seven represents harmony encompassed by yin, yang, and the five elements in Confucianism. There are seven higher worlds and seven underworlds in Hinduism. In Buddhism, the newborn Buddha takes seven steps.

23. Shreya

Shreya sounds happy and cheerful, without the unicorns and rainbows. This favorite Indian name has several positive meanings, one of them being ‘fortunate’. And it’s also tied to Goddess Lakshmi. This name was on the Social Security Administration popularity list for the years 2002 to 2005, probably because of the rise of Indian singer Shreya Ghoshal.

24. Syntyche

Syntyche is an ancient Greek name, meaning ‘fate or fortunate’ mentioned in Paul’s epistle in the New Testament. Syntyche, along with Euodia, was a female member of the Philippi church. She and Euodia had a quarrel or difference of opinion and were besought separately by Paul. Syntyche is one of the least used and distinctive Biblical names, making it a perfect option for parents looking for a unique name for their daughter.

25. Taaliyah

While Taaliyah (with a double a) in Hebrew means ‘gentle dew of heaven’, in Arabic it means ‘fortunate’ or ‘lucky’. Both ways, the name sounds positive and beautiful. It’s different, exotic and isn’t overused. We give it a thumbs up!

26. Urd

In the Norse mythology, Urd was the name of one of the three Norns, or the goddesses of destiny. Urd, along with the other two Norns, decides the fate of the people. They spin the threads of life, make marks in the pole figures and then measure a person’s destiny. We love this name for its hippie-like, counterculture flavor. The name Urd means ‘fate’.

27. Ventura

Ventura began as a short form for Bonaventura, but now stands on its own. This stylish ‘V’ ending and pleasant sound make it even more beautiful. It’s also associated with the Ventura Boulevard, the thoroughfare in San Fernando Valley. Others can tie it with Jesse Ventura, the American wrestler. Ventura means ‘good fortune’.

28. Yuki

Hailing from thousands and thousands of miles away, this appealing Japanese name, with a nickname like feel, means ‘snow’ in one dialect and ‘lucky’ in the other. No wonder it’s hugely popular amongst the Japanese population in America. The beauty of this name is so hard to ignore that even Americans have started bestowing this name on their children.

29. Zaida

Zaida, an Arabic name pronounced as ‘zah-EE-Dah’, is an exotic and attractive option for the child of any religion or background. You can witness its popularity, especially in Syria. It means ‘prosperous or fortunate’.
