So now, let’s take a closer look at these girls’ names beginning with S. 

Samantha is of Aramaic origin and means “listens well” and also Hebrew origin and means “as told by God”.

In Greek, the name Stevie is a derivative of the name Steven, and means, “crown” or “victorious”. It’s also a popular nickname for little girls called Stephanie and is the nickname of the lead singer from Fleetwood Mac. Cool or what?

For the music fans out there, the name Sia is a Swedish name derived from the Old Norse sigr, meaning “victory.” It also has connections to ancient Egypt and the God Sia, who was the god of wisdom and knowledge, residing in the heart.

While most people might associate the name Salem with the city in Massachusetts, the name itself is actually of Hebrew origin and means Peace.

For those who’d like a name inspired by nature. How about Sidney? It’s a gender neutral name of English origin meaning “wide meadow”.

Looking for a traditionally Irish name? The name Saoirse is a girl’s name of Irish origin meaning “liberty”. Saoirse originated as a baby name in 1920s Ireland as an applied use of saoirse, the Gaelic word for “freedom.”
