Top 10 Baby Names for Girls
Those looking for something more romantic than Emily (#7) can opt for Emma. Ultrafeminine and with royal roots (think Queen Emma of the turn of the 11th century), it received a nice boost in popularity in 2002 after Friends’ Rachel and Ross chose it for their baby’s name.
Alternatives include Amelia, Amelie, Emilia, Emmeline, and Ella.
