Inside: Looking for baby girl names that start with B? Here are lots of modern ideas that you’ll love from Bella to Brylee!

When it comes to B names for girls, they aren’t quite as popular as the other letters with only Bella and Brooklyn making the top 100 most popular names for 2021.

However, they are still worth noting and who knows. You may find a new favorite from my list!

All of these names in this list came from the other baby name lists I have on this website, and most were sourced from real moms.

So they are names that are actually being used and they are completely modern!

Some of these names aren’t found on any other baby name lists out there!
