300+ Southern and Country Baby Names for Boys and Girls

I like to write about celebrities, music, TV, movies, leisure, baby names, and American pop culture.

Southerners love their sweet tea, hush puppies, and fried okra, but even more importantly, they grow up with a love for their history and their strong family bonds. Southern names often bring to mind cotillions, derbies, and well-worn battlefields.

These Southern baby names for boys and girls will reflect your pride of living south of the Mason-Dixon line. The girls' names reflect the femininity and heritage of the South, and the boys' names are rugged and distinguished.

Next to having a healthy baby, there is almost nothing more important than a name that a child can proudly carry throughout their life. This list of uniquely Southern baby names gives you hundreds of great choices for naming your baby with a nod to your great culture and history.

Baby Name Poll

What Are Southern Boy Names Inspired By?

Southern baby boy names tend to have one of the following traits:

  • They sound tough or macho, such as Blade or Ryker. They make you think of cowboys and 4x4s.
  • They're inspired by Southern capitals or states like Montgomery, Tex, or Houston. These names make you think about history.
  • They're inspired by the first or last names of Civil War figures, such as Lee or Marshall. These names feel historical.
  • They have Anglo Saxon origins, like Albion (which is literally the original namesake of England), George, or Frederick.
  • They're inspired by nature, such as Ridge, Colt, Hunter, or Wade.

Some of the famous people that have had these names are: Montgomery Gentry, Tex Ritter, Robert E. Lee, and Hunter Hayes.

What Are Southern Girl Names Inspired By?

Southern girl names tend to have the following traits:

  • They come from nature, like Willow, Clementine, or Daisy. These names are delicate and feminine.
  • They are named after Civil War battles or battlefields, like Harper or Chantilly. These names are both a nod to history, yet are still girly.
  • They are inspired by Southern states and towns, like Dallas, Virginia, or Georgia.
  • They originate from old-fashioned women's names of the 1800s, like Olivia, Clarabelle, or Victoria.

Some of the famous women that have had these names are Adelaide Clemens, Harper Lee, and Virginia Dare.

The Importance of a Name

When having a baby, there is a lot of pressure on the parents to name their child appropriately. In extended families where grandparents, uncles, and aunts are close, the expectation that you would name your child after them is high.

This is especially so in Southern families where tradition is highly regarded. If you are under this kind of baby-naming pressure, pick a name that NO ONE in your family has. This way there is no jealousy or awkwardness involved!

400+ American Baby Names for Girls and Boys

It is said that children grow into their name. And you can often observe this in people that you know. So if you name a boy Tex, he might grow up to have a big personality. And if you name a girl Clementine, she might grow up to love long skirts, ribbons, and makeup.

With this list you can ensure you christen your child with a legacy of Southern, country pride!

Southern Belle Names For Your Baby Girl

Looking for some sweet Southern girl names for babies? I can totally understand why. These beautiful names from the south are classic and timeless so they’re perfect for your southern belle.

When I think of the south I conjure up images of rustic country living, a fondness for history and tradition, and beautiful southern belles and chivalrous old-fashioned gentlemen. It really is a way of life and almost a subculture of America.

It’s no wonder that Southern baby names have become popular nationwide, not just in the south.

For instance, 4 out of the top 10 baby girl names of 2019 as determined by US Social Security Statistics are Southern girl names: Olivia, Charlotte, Ava, and Harper.

It’s not just about geography either. The south has its own customs, traditions, cuisine, and musical styles that are rooted in its history and cultural development which is why Southern baby names are so unique and popular everywhere.

WHY DO SOUTHERNERS HAVE DOUBLE NAMES?


One naming tradition that’s super popular in the deep south is double names. You can almost always be sure you’re talking to a southern as it’s become a custom that’s deeply associated with folks from that area.

It’s no secret that traditional values like the importance of family are paramount in southern communities. Many southern wanted to incorporate their family names into current baby names so they would often use double names to add in a nod to their family lines. If you want to learn more about how and why the south loves its double names check out this article from southern living.

Nowadays, the most common double names for southern girls include Mary, Jane, Anne/Anna, Mae, Jean, and Rae.

I personally love this tradition and think it’s super cute. Your little one has so many name options!
