To get you started on the search for your perfect baby-girl name, we've looked to see which Hispanic girl names are trending in 2022. Some are already popular, topping the list of the most-used baby names in the United States. Others are coming up in other Spanish-speaking parts of the world, but haven't hit full saturation in stateside yet. And still others are the names that are just starting to show up on lists here and there, so they'd be good ones to choose if you're looking for a more unusual, unique baby girl name. Take a look, and get inspired by the variety of pretty Hispanic girl names out there.

These are already some of the most popular baby girl names in the country.

One important factor when choosing a baby name is how popular that name is already. Some parents look for a common name that everyone knows and can spell, others would prefer to have their kid be the only one in the class with that name.

To check the popularity of the name, it's best to visit the website of the Social Security Administration (SSA), which keeps track of the use of baby names in the United States and puts out a list of the most popular baby names for girls each year. This year, these are the names that broke into the top spots that are either Spanish or Latin in origin:

  1. Olivia
  2. Ava
  3. Isabella
  4. Luna
  5. Camila
  6. Emily/Emilia
  7. Nova
  8. Isla
  9. Aurora
  10. Stella

For an interesting comparison, the SSA also keeps a separate list of the most-popular names in Puerto Rico. There, the top 10 names are Valentina, Emma, Victoria, Amaia, Luna, Isabella, Gianna, Mia, Catalina and Milena. Of those, Gianna, Catalina and Milena are new to the top 10, showing that the trend of girl names ending in "a" will remain popular.


BabyCenter tracks the use of names from its Spanish-speaking audience.

If you're in the baby-name search, you're probably already familiar with BabyCenter, which keeps track of baby names chosen by its users. But you might not know that BabyCenter also has a Spanish-language site, BabyCenter en Español, which, according to the site, is used by Hispanic parents in the United States and in 22 Spanish-speaking countries. It also keeps track of interest in baby names. These were the most popular baby girl names on BabyCenter en Español in 2021 that don't already appear on the SSA most popular list for the United States or Puerto Rico.

Looking over these lists, you can see certain trends: Many of the names are similar to the ones on the top of the SSA list, but some have been given a slight twist to make them stand out a little more. Names that start with "Al-" are trending up, like Alma, Alana and Alba. And celestially-inspired names also seem to be on the rise, like Nova, Aurora and Luna. But whether you go with these trends or find something uniquely your own, you're sure to pick the perfect moniker.
