Everyone loves magic, don’t they? Haven’t they wandered through the valleys of imaginary lands accompanied by fairies and angels? Haven’t they wondered about short built, long-nosed, big-eared elves, giant gnomes, goblins, dragons and trolls? I’m sure we all had fancied about unicorns, griffins, mermaids, talking animals and witches.
Fairy tales are the ones which became our best friends through bedtime stories. They had given us wings to fly to far off lands in wild imagination to be with our favorite characters. Our childhood is entwined with these magical creatures which have been passed on through generations and generations.
However big or matured we are, even now we love to watch a fairy tale with our kids, don’t we? Walt Disney had proved it right that, whenever they roll out a big budget fairy tale movie, it would surely be a sure-shot massive hit in the box office. I don’t think that only children enjoyed Harry Potter or Game of Thrones for that matter.
Fairy tales have encouraged and inspired us to name our kids with the most melodious and soothing names. Fairy tale names are not only a fashion but also a passion among parents. Here we present you a list of twenty most magical girl names for mommy’s little princess.
What a mellifluous name! It is an unusual and a unique name. Do you know its meaning? It is ‘heavenly’. It is a French name and is also a musical instrument. This instrument was first used to represent the sugar plum fairy in the ‘Nutcracker’ ballet.
The sound of Celeste is heavenly and it became synonymous with the sugar plum fairy, the ruler of the land of sweets. She is the one who receives the Nutcracker and his lady love Clara to her land and orders the festivities. Celeste stands for beauty and intelligence. What else would a parent want in their girl child?
Whom does this name reminds you? Yes, ‘The Little mermaid’! The naughty beautiful daughter of the Sea King Triton! The name itself has a fairy feeling. She was the one who longed to live as a true human on land. With her bestie, she had found enough time to surface the sea and fell in love with the prince Eric.
The fairy tale becomes a wonder when the mermaid who is deeply in love with prince Eric surrenders her human form and sweet voice to the sea witch Ursula to protect Eric from harm. She is the epitome of pure love and this is truly a beautiful name for your little princess. Shakespeare’s Ariel in ‘The Tempest’ is also a fairy!
Asteria is also referred to as the crying fairy. She is the mother of the little fairy princess ‘Sherbet’. Sherbet went missing and from then on Asteria and her husband were wandering to find their lost child. In the fairy tale Asteria is seen weeping or crying throughout thinking her lost child.
This is an Italian name. People with this name are believed to be leaders rather than followers. They are people with powerful personalities. They are courageous at the same time aggressive and unique. This beautiful sounding name is a hit among parents who want their babies to be called with fair fairy tale names.
Isn’t this name gives you an unusual feeling? Giselle is the peasant girl who dies of a grief stricken heart when she realised that her true love was already betrothed to another woman. During the middle ages, it was believed that if a girl dies without joining her love or before her wedding bell chimes, she would turn to be a wili. Wilis are sylph like characters who are cursed to dance from midnight till the dawn breaks.
Wilis could trap any deserted young man and force him to dance till his physical strength is drained and he is dead. Giselle though turned out to be a wili, saved her love from death. This fairy tale of Giselle reminds us that pure love is truly magical and it can do wonders.
In Greek and Roman mythology, Aurora is the goddess of dawn. Dawn is the beginning of a fresh start for everything. But for us, Aurora is the sleeping beauty. Don’t you know the sleeping beauty, the one who can wakes up only by the kiss of her true love? But Disney has brought the twist in the tale of sleeping beauty, too.
In the tale that we had heard in our childhood, Aurora’s charming prince’s kiss is what saves her from the long slumber! But our kids will be remembering Maleficent (enacted by Angelina Jolie) as the true love of Aurora! Whatever, sleeping beauty and her tale of the victory of true love is still afresh in our minds, isn’t it?
How can we forget Eliza the swan princess, who is known for her kindness, sincerity courage and love for people? Eliza had proved that goodness will prevail and win over bad. It was Eliza’s courage and fortitude of her big heart saved her father and brothers from her wicked step mother.
She faced the loneliness, insults and sufferings with a bold heart and smile on her face and came out triumphantly at the end of the fairy tale. Well, any parents would love to name their little girl this name as the name beholds the finest qualities a woman can have in its true sense.
Fiona, the ogre princess, the lady love of Shrek! Fiona is the lead female character of Dreamwork’s Shrek series. In each series, we see a different Fiona. Fiona was originally a princess, but due to a curse, turn out to be an ogress every night.

This name comes straight from the ‘Game of Thrones’ series. Daenerys is the sister of Viserys, wife of Drogo and mother of three dragons. She is characterized as a very strong female character in the show. It is her quest, dreams and aspiration that is depicted in the show.
Daen is actually a Hebrew word which means 'God is my judge' . Erys is derived from the Greek word 'Eris' which means ‘Goddess of discourse and destruction’. Therefore the words together can mean 'God is the judge of my destruction'. If the spelling is tweaked to Daenarys, then ‘Arys’ is also derived from the Greek 'Aris' which means excellent purpose.
