Girl Names related to Saint

Saint names for baby girls, with 170 entries. Names of saints are evergreen choices, and there is a huge variety of names to choose from as saint names do not have to strictly be found in the bible. List lengths vary, but according to one source, the US Catholic magazine, more than 10,000 saints are venerated. Saint names are classic favorites. Today they are still very popular as baby girl names, but not as much as they were in the past, and they are also regarded as trendy. Their usage peaked in 1917 with 26.086% of baby girls being given Saint names. Within the top 1000 baby names then, there were 72 Saint names. The names have slipped in popularity since then. In 2015, their total usage was 7.381% with 52 Saint names listed among the top 1000, appearing with somewhat increasing regularity in the recent decade. Among all Saint names, Olivia (English, German, and Italian) was the most widely used, with a ranking of #2 and a usage of 1.0104%.
