12 Baby Girl Names Inspired by Heat Wave

As I said earlier on Heat-Wave Inspired Baby Boy Names, this has been one brutal summer. And it isn’t even August! This year’s heat wave is wreaking havoc coast to coast, but one red-hot and unexpected outcome of these outrageous temperatures is this fiery list of baby girl names that are perfect for any new little lass born before this heat breaks.

After the jump, check out these 12 Hot Summer Baby Girl Names Inspired by the Heat Wave!


  • Adena 1 of 12
    Adena

  • Calinda 2 of 12
    Calinda
    Origin: Hindi

  • Clytie 3 of 12
    Clytie
    Origin: Greek
    Meaning: Bright
    Here's another name that's not tipping the most-popular charts. It has a really sweet sound and is a nice alternative to the ever-popular Chloe.

  • Eliana 4 of 12
    Eliana
    Origin: Hebrew, Greek
    Greek Meaning: Daughter of the sun

  • Idalia 6 of 12
    Idalia
    Origin: Greek
    Meaning: Behold the sun
    Idalia has such a beautiful sound and trumps the harder-sounding female I names, like Ingrid and Irene. It's also a nice break from the popular Isabelle.

  • Kyra 7 of 12
    Kyra
    Origin: Persian, Egyptian
    Meaning: Like Ra, the sun
    This popular quick-sounding name packs a hot punch and will suit summer-born girls wonderfully.

  • Marisol 8 of 12
    Marisol
    Origin: Spanish
    Meaning: Maria of the sun
    Some like to translate this name to mean "of the sea (mar) and sun (sol), but its actual meaning seems to vary from source to source. But either way, it is one pretty name for a girl.

  • Nina 9 of 12
    Nina
    Origin: Incan

  • Selena 10 of 12
    Selena
    Origin: Greek Mythology
    Meaning: Sister of the sun
    Since the sister of the sun is the moon, this sultry summer name nods to the cooler and more exciting nights.

  • Solange 11 of 12
    Solange
    Origin: French
    Meaning: Angel of the sun
    There seems to be different pronunciation keys for this name, but the Solange I know pronounces her name so-LON-jha. What could be warmer than a name that means "angel of the sun?"
    Name Source: Think Baby Names
  • Thea 12 of 12
    Thea
    Origin: Greek
    Meaning: Goddess of light; Mother of the sun
    This name is actually on my list of potential girl names. It's softness is balanced nicely with its undeniably strong meaning.
