Learning you're having a baby can be such a wonderfully special and joyful time, but trying to pick out the perfect name for your soon-to-be new addition can be challenging. It's not easy to choose what this little human is going to be called for the rest of their life — which is why we're here to hopefully help you figure it out.

While these days we recognize what could be considered a "girl name" can easily be up for debate, as more parents are leaning toward gender-neutral names, at the end of the day, every parent should feel free to name their child whatever feels best for them and their family. You might even decide that you'd prefer to give your new daughter a more traditional boy name. But if you're specifically looking for a more traditional girl name that honors your Latinx roots or a Spanish girl name for your little one, we've got you covered. From Aracely to Xiomara, these 100 names are some of the prettiest Hispanic girl names out there with some meaningful definitions that make them even more special. We've included meanings for each name from Nameberry — who knows, a specific meaning may catch your eye, and you may just find your baby's new name. So scroll through, and see if you can land on a unique one (or maybe a combination of two or three). They all roll right off the tongue and have a beautiful ring to them.
