Female Hipster Baby Names with meanings and origin

Delilah: it’s not uncommon to find biblical references among hipster baby names and Delilah is not an exception. A baby name of Hebrew origin, Delilah describes the seductive girl, the femme fatale. According to the bible, Delilah “trolled” Samson into revealing his fearsome secret: the source of his amazing strength, ie. his long hair. Delilah after making him drink too much and dancing a very sensual dance, he made Samson go to sleep and cut his hair. When Samson woke up, he was tight with strong ropes and blinded. He became so angry that he teared apart the entire building and found tragic death. Be ware of Delilah!

Edna: a baby name of Hebrew origin that means delight. It has a hipster connection because of Irish novelist Edna O’Brien (born 1930) and lyrical poet Edna St. Vincent Millay (born 1892).

Fifi: okay, maybe you wouldn’t name your baby girl Yolo, but how about Fifi? Let’s break down the meaning of this name that belongs to the acronym hipster baby names.

Flannery: it used to be a boy’s name (Flann), but this variation is more for baby girls mainly because of writer and essayist Flannery O’Connor (1925-1964). Hipsters love her because she has the most amazing quotes out there. For example, conviction without experience makes for harshness. Flannery is an Irish baby name that means red-haired.

Hazel: among the Hipster baby names inspired by reality shows, thanks to Big Brother’s  Hazel O’Sullivan (catch the latest news from Hazel at her official Twitter account). Hazel O’Sullivan grabbed viewers attention nationwide with her sassy pranks with fellow house mate Daley Ojuederie. This earned her a near-hero status among hipsters. Julia Roberts daughter is named Hazel and in Hunger Games we can find a Hazelle in the characters list. Also, just to link with Flannery O’Connor discussed above, in her 1952 novel titles Wise Blood, the protagonist was named Hazel Motes. Apart from her hipster status because the obvious celebrity link, Hazel is a beautiful baby name associated with nature, so it’s a perfect fit for the eco-conscious parents.

Iris: a Greek baby name that derives from the flower Iris and its meaning is rainbow. Clearly one of the coolest hipster baby names due to its appeal in celebrities. Leslie Mann, Renee O’Connor and Jude Law (see exclusive photos) all named their baby girls Iris. According to ancients Greek myths, Iris was the messenger for Hera and Zeus. She used to ride rainbows and people of her time imagined this amazing optical illusion as the 7-colored bridge that connected heaven to earth. Iris often reflected majesty and power. Don’t forget that the colored part of the eye is also called Iris, so you can understand that it can be found pretty much everywhere!

Isla: you can find Isla on the list of Hipster baby names because of the hot wife of SachaBaron Cohen, Isla Fisher. The young red-haired actress was born to Scottish parents in Oman. Isla is a scottish river after all. The meaning of Isla is island (Isla-nd). We can also find this hipster name as on of the Harry Potter fictional characters, Isla Black Hitchens.

Lulu: a diminutive form of Lucy or Louise. Lulu means pearl and it was one of the hottest names when the SSA list of popular baby names was born in 1880. It’s now coming back with a vengeance!

Maisie: all hipsters are fans of Game of Thrones, so 16-year-old English actress Maisie Williams who plays Arya in the popular TV series is a clear connection. That’s why the name is so popular in Britain! The origin of Maisie is from Margaret and its meaning is pearl. And as most hipster baby names, Maisie can be found on Harry Potter as a half-blood character.

Matilda: a vintage baby name that is now cool again thanks to Gordon Ramsey’s daughter in 2002 and more recently due to Heath Ledger naming his baby girl Matilda. A baby name of German origin which means battle-might. Matilda also had appearance in Charles Dickens’s Nicholas Nickleby.

Neva: a hipster baby name of Spanish origin which means white snow. Neva sounds a bit exotic and has an element of purity and clean aura that makes it popular among hipsters.

Pandora: I must admit, we struggled with this one. Pandora was heading to the burdensome baby names list as Pandora’s box was known to contain all evils of the world. Then, we thought that Pandora means gifted and it’s really rare and unique name, so it goes well with the hipster mentality of non-mainstream attitude.

Romy: a dimunative form of Rosemary which is a herb and a combination of Rose and Mary. It seems that celebrities love any name that start with Rom, for example Romeo and Rowan, so it’s only natural that Romy became popular among hipsters.

Ruby: a baby name of Latin origin that represents the deep red precious stone ruby. Despite the fact that other gem names like Crystal or Pearl are considerd too old-fashioned, Ruby is considered a cool choice from hipster parents.  Hollywood star Tobey Maguire daughter’s name is Ruby.

Savannah: it sounds Hebrew but it’s actually Spanish. It became popular among hipsters after making an appearance in the er “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil” best seller. The meaning of Savannah is a flat tropical grassland and Desperate Housewives’ Marcia Cross chose this hipster baby name for her twin daughter.

  1. […] Octavienne: the French variation of Octavien, it adds a bit more European flavor into the mix and qualifies as a hipster baby name. […]

  2. Jordan says:

    “Scout” is probably popular from ”To Kill A Mockingbird’ rather than Demi and Bruce’s daughter.

  3. Mel says:

    I would strongly encourage you to check your facts for the story of Delilah. I suppose that is a conglomeration of what happened but…rather inaccurate.

    • BabyNames says:

      Hi Mel, this is just a short summary of the story, maybe it doesn’t have all the details but I wouldn’t say it is inaccurate. Let me know if you have specific questions. Thanks !

    Octavienne: the French variety of Octavien, it includes a bit more European flavor into the mix and qualifies as a trendy person child name.

  5. Nancy says:

    My 3 year old is called “Scout” and she is the coolest kid out there. But she certainly wasn’t named after Bruce Willis’ daughter but after the main character from ” To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. To insinuate that anyone would name their child after a celebrity offspring is a bit odd and surely against a hipsters being.

    • BabyNames says:

      Hi Nancy, thanks for stopping by. Scout is indeed a great hipster name. Parents find inspiration from all kinds of different sources, so we are just providing some examples, it’s not possible to cover everything! Hope it helps.

  6. Rachel says:

    Demi and Bruce named their daughter after the character in To Kill a Mockingbird.

  7. Blanca says:

    Hey, I’m Blanca and I’m from Spain. I have to said something about Neva’s name, It’s not a spanish name. Nieve is the name that you are talking about and I have to say I know girls named Nieves, for a Virgin, but not Neva, Will be a italian name, because in italian it’s Neve.

  8. Ethan says:

    I think all these names are good!
