350+ African American Black Girl Names

‘What’s in a name?’ – you shouldn’t keep that famous dialogue in your mind while naming your baby. Names neither define the failure and success of one’s life nor brings fortune or misfortune. But an appropriate title helps your child to shape her personality in that way. Therefore, it’s not unusual that people with the name ‘Melody’ love music a lot, and the word ‘Decent’ unconsciously grows subtle decency inside the child.

African Americans have a long-rooted tradition to name their children right after their birth. They highly appreciate meaningful words that also follow their ancestry or religion. Though they used to embrace some widespread names for their newborn girls, they have become selective in recent days and prefer unique words as names.
