42 Girl Names Starting With U

42 Girl Names Starting With U

What better way to find a unique name for your baby than to choose one that starts with an unusual letter: ‘U’. While the letter ‘U’ is not seen in names very often, there are some beautiful names for girls.

Some of the better-known girls’ names starting with ‘U’ are made famous by actresses like Uma Thurman, or Disney characters like Ursula. Using characters and actresses for inspiration is a great way to find a name you like while imagining a future for your daughter. She’ll also gain a special role model who shares her name.

Another popular source of girl’s names is flowers. Swapping the first letter with a U can give an old flower name a unique twist while keeping the imagery. For example, abelia, the name of a delicate, white, trumpet-shaped flower, can be changed to become Ubelia. You’ll have all the floral inspiration of older names like Rose and Violet, with a modern feeling of an unusual letter.

While U names are not seen very often in the United States, they are more popular in other parts of the world. Names like Ulrike are even popular in the Swedish royal family and other parts of Europe. So if you’re looking for interesting names for your baby, it’s worth considering imported names and names beginning with unique letters. You might find a whole world of names you would have never considered before.
