16 Baby Girl Names For Triplets Because Naming 3 Kids At Once Is Hard
Naming one child is hard enough, but when you find out you’re having triplets (congratulations and godspeed) it can be almost impossible to decide on a trio of names you like (and it's even more complicated when you have to agree with a partner). Even after buying three of everything and finding a stroller that will still fit through your front door, deciding what to call your babies may seem like the most daunting baby-prep task. With this in mind, I’ve rounded up 16 trios of baby names for girl triplets, because you can donate a baby sling that you never end up using, but a name is pretty permanent.
If you and your partner are having trouble agreeing on three names (understandable) and want to have some fun, you could try the BabyName app, which is kind of like Tinder... but for baby names. The app shuffles through a huge amount of names from around the world which you can then swipe right or left on. If you each individually swipe right on the same name, you’ll get notified that you both like it, which is a lot more fun than suggesting a name and watching your husband or wife scrunch up their nose in disgust. Read on for 16 trios of baby names to consider if you're pregnant with triplet girls so you don't end up with Kourtney, Khloe, and Kim (unless that's your jam).
1. Abigail, Bella, Jolie
2. Poppy, Lily, & Iris
Perfect for nature-lovers, Poppy, Lily, and Iris are all beautiful girls names that also happen to be flowers. While these three definitely sound like they belong together and have a clear connection, they all stand on their own as strong, elegant names.
3. Eve, Sarah, & Esther
4. Sophia, Sage, & Ramona
These three names all mean 'wise' or 'wisdom' according to Baby Names. I like how the names call to each other, but are still unexpected and modern as a trio.
5. Olivia, Emma, & Calla
6. Elizabeth, Evelyn, & Alice
7. Grace, Hannah, & Annie
8. Indigo, Ruby, & Olive
If you're looking for a fun organizing principle for your triplet's names, you can try naming them each after a more obscure color. Indigo, Ruby, and Olive are all beautifully unique girls names, but they go together. Scarlet, Rose, or Jade can also fit nicely here.
9. Delta, Cordelia, & Isla
10. Charlotte, Emily, & Anne
Book-lovers will appreciate this trio named after three of the four Brontë sisters (the fourth was named Maria). The names are classic and simple with a sweet literary nod your kids can appreciate when they're older (and have to read Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights in high school).
11. Quinn, Avery, & Sawyer
Gender neutral names are more popular than ever, and these three are both cute and sophisticated. Avery means 'ruler of the elves,' Quinn means 'descendant of Conn,' and Sawyer means 'wood cutter,' per Nameberry. It's especially nice to have some gender neutral names picked out if you don't know what sex you're having and want to feel prepared either way.
12. Sedona, Odessa, & Sydney
It's getting more and more common to name babies after places (possibly thanks to Victoria and David Beckham naming their firstborn son Brooklyn). Sedona, Odessa, and Sydney are all gorgeous names and cities, but you can pick your own favorite travel spots too (like Savannah, Paris, or Alexandria).
13. Ruby, Opal, & Jade
14. Rosalie, Florence, & Mary
15. Wren, Lark, & Paloma
16. Madeline, Elle, & June
I love how these three names, Madeline, Elle, and June are strong and feminine, and they just so happen to be three of Reese Witherspoon's most notable characters (Madeline Mackenzie from Big Little Lies, Elle Woods, and June Carter). Most people won't recognize the fun thread that binds the three names, but it's a fun Easter egg about your kiddos. Madeline means 'high tower,' Elle means 'she,' and June means the month named for the goddess Juno, per Nameberry.
