Brand Baby Names for Girls
Curious why this popular name is on our list? Well, it’s for Ashley Furniture HomeStore™, an established family-owned American company that’s been selling wooden home furnishings since 1945.
It’s a suitable name for the company since this moniker means ‘ash wood’ in Old English. Ash wood is a lightweight and shock-resistant kind of wood that’s a fitting option for exquisite furniture.
Interestingly, in some parts of Europe, people burn ash trees or twigs during Christmas season believing it would bring in a prosperous year. This Nordic tradition is called the ‘Yule Log.’
While Avis can be considered a warrior-themed name since it means ‘fighter, warrior’ in German, this unique name is on our list for Avis™ Car Rental.
Avis™ Car Rental is a well-known American rental car provider that caters to business and leisure travelers. While it started in the US, it now operates internationally under the Avis Budget Group.
If you’re into health and fitness, you might recognize Calia™ as country music icon Carrie Underwood’s line of active lifestyle apparel and accessories for women. This sweet-sounding name means ‘a known beauty’ in the English language.
By the way, calia is also the name of the fragrant purple shrub that blossoms in spring.
For the chic parent-to-be, Chanel could be a top contender. Chanel™ is a French company that’s known for haute couture, luxury goods, perfume, and fashion accessories. It was founded by Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel in 1909. The House of Chanel brings to mind ‘the little black dress,’ Chanel Suit, and the perfume number 5 de Chanel.
While the name itself means ‘channel’ in Old French, this name just has that touch of indulgence you might find attractive.
Another French brand making our list is Chantelle™, a prominent lingerie company established in 1876 by François Auguste Gamichon. Its best-known innovations include lightweight Spacer bras and Memory Foam bras.
While Chantelle may be a bit uncommon, we think it’s as fashionable and delicate as the brand it’s associated with.
In Chinese, this gender-neutral name means ‘tender-hearted.’ But we included it here for CHI® Hair Care and Styling Tools. This is a company started by Farouk Shami, a Palestinian-American hairdresser who invented the first ammonia-free hair color.
Interestingly, Chi can also be a nature-inspired name since it means ‘tree branch’ in Vietnamese. Moreover, in Chinese tradition, chi is also the life force that flows through every living entity.
This biblical name translates to ‘pious, godly, honorable’ in Latin. However, in this list, it’s for Piaget™, a Swiss luxury watch and jewelry company founded by Georges Piaget in 1874.
This name means ‘blossoming flower’ in Arabic. Zara™ is also a Spanish line of apparel established in 1975 that’s known for fast fashion. Fast fashion is affordable clothing inspired by catwalk or celebrity culture that’s mass-produced and sold in stores.
