Cutting Edge Hipster Girl Names for 2020

Are you looking for an effortlessly cool name for your baby girl? This list of hipster girl names for 2020 will help you find the perfect unique and hip baby name!

What Makes a Hipster Name?

So what exactly makes a hipster name? Well, it’s a name that is new, fresh, or old enough to feel fresh again. Hipsters often set trends in everything for food, to music, to clothing. Now that hipsters are becoming parents, they’re also setting trends in baby names!

Many hipsters love the trend of using vintage names for babies. But not any vintage name will do. Lily and Sophie are far too common for a true hipster. They are looking for a unique vintage name that will help their baby stand out from the crowd.

Hipsters also love special baby names with unique, but not weird, spellings. Again, a name that will set their baby apart is key for hipsters.

Finally, hipsters love to use gender neutral names, or boys names for girls. Adding a unique spelling, like Emersyn instead of Emerson, is a common trend hipsters love.

Hipster Girl Names for 2020
