50 Beautiful Danish Girl Names

Deciding on a name is likely one of the first things that crossed your mind when you found out a bundle of joy was coming into your life. You may have thought about your heritage and decided that you wanted to honor it. What better way to do so than with your daughter’s name?

Whether you or your family is from Denmark, or you just really love the culture, there are a lot of beautiful Danish names your daughter can have with pride. If you’re looking for a name that can transcend more than one place, Emma (meaning “whole”) is a Danish name that’s extremely popular in the United States.

More traditional names like Ida or Freja aren’t as common outside of Scandinavia, which means that they’ll be unique choices that are still beautiful. Ida means “labor” or “work,” which may give your daughter aspirations of a strong work ethic.

If you’re looking to highlight a completely different feature, Freja means “noblewoman,” which will conjure images of royalty whenever someone hears her name.

A more modern name like Sofia (meaning “wisdom”) is one that will mesh well with cultures outside of Denmark while still retaining a bit of flair. It’s one of the most popular names in Italy, the United States, Chile, Spain, and of course Denmark!

There are so many beautiful Danish girl names that have just about any meaning that you desire. For more ideas, check out the list below.
