Screen Shot 2017-11-20 at 10.18.33 PM

The letter ‘E’ provides us with some of the prettiest girls’ names imaginable.  I might be slightly biased because my name’s Elizabeth.  Anyway, while the top of the charts currently boast such lovelies as Emma and Evelyn, don’t forget the gems below the top 1000!  Emeraude, anyone?

Below is a selection of rare ‘E’ names given to baby girls in 2016.  As always, the data is from the Social Security Administration, which publishes all baby names in the U.S. down to 5 uses (with extremely few exceptions).  The rarest names will be towards the bottom of the page.

I’ve always loved the dusty Victorian ladies like Euphemia and Edwina, but I also appreciate many of the more modern options like Elowen and EvoletI’m still not sure how I should feel about Espn, though…it’s literally ESPN, the name!
