There are some names that make you a better person. They are that established (posh). Old-fashioned girl’s names can make you taller, prettier, more successful and even speed up your metabolism.
Which probably explains why she is walking like this:
Oh, oh my goodness. Her name certainly wasn’t very blue-blood. She’s probably named Sienna, and it’s probably spelled with a “y”, as in Syenna.

I’ve always believed that girls are more invested in their names than boys, which is why you need to think carefully about what you want to name your precious little daughter because if you choose one she doesn’t like, you’ll hear about it when she’s a teenager, of that you can be sure.
The 20th most popular baby name in Australia, Matilda is just an adorable traditional name for baby girls. It’s originally German in origin however Banjo Patterson gave us permission to call it our own. Possible nicknames include Mattie, Tilda and Tillie. Uber-cool actress/writer/singer Molly Ringwald named her daughter Matilda with an “h” as in Mathilda.
Meaning “clear” and “bright”, Clara just managed to finally crack a Top 100 in any baby names list in 2015 at 98. Clara continues to be a popular choice, described as a “sweet and soft” choice for baby girls. Moulin Rouge! actor Ewan McGregor chose the name for his daughter, showing once again how on-trend he always is.
The name Dorothy is notoriously difficult to shorten and why would you. It’s eternally beautiful and no longer associated only with Wizard of Oz retellings. The name means “Gift of God” which explains why parents who, in the age of Google, have started choosing it for their babies.
Sadie began as a nickname for anyone called Sarah, it has since become an independent given name. My dog is named Sadie, which makes it much, much cooler than it ever was. Aussie singer John Farnham made it ours when he sang Sadie, the Cleaning Lady. These days Sadie can do whatever she likes. She can run the cleaning company if she wishes!
There’s something about Mary…which is why it never quite leaves most popular baby name lists around the world. It has several meanings, the most flattering of which is “wished-for child”. The least flattering description is “bitter”. And who can forget little Mary from Three Men and a Baby and Three Men and a Little Lady. Retro movie night time!
