117 awesome American baby names

Having a baby and undecided on what to call your newborn? Why not head across the pond and choose an American baby name? Here are our favourite baby boys’ names and baby girls’ names from the US of A. 

A lot of American baby names aren’t conventional names - rather they are made-up words, place names, or often surnames used as first names, so there are a lot of unique baby names to choose from. Many of these are relatively rare in the UK, so your little one could be a trend setter with one of these monikers.
