Popular female names

This random name wheel contains 150 popular female names in English (US). The names were particularly popular during the 2010s (from 2010 to 2019) but are still popular today.

Baby girl names

Choosing a baby name you (and your partner, if any) like can feel both thrilling and daunting at the same time. You might go to the library to check out baby name books, or you might scour the 4 corners of the internet for various lists of names. It's exhausting! That's why we believe a "wheel of names" is a good alternative.

Instead of reading a lot of names at once, you can use the name generator wheel to see one name at a time. You can think about how the name sounds, how you feel when you hear the name, and you can take your time to really soak it in. When you're done, you can spin the wheel again to see the next name. It's definitely more time consuming than quickly going over a long lis of names, but it's an important decision. Naming your unborn baby girl is one of the most important tasks during pregnancy, so you should take your time without being overwhelmed. We hope this random wheel of names helps pick the right name for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most popular female name?

"Mary" was the most common first name between 1922 and 2021 in the US, according to the United States Social Security Administration. "Patricia" and "Jennifer" are the runner ups for that same period.

Is the spinner wheel truly random?

In practice: yes. In theory: no. That sounds confusing, but let us explain! In computer programs, nothing is truly random, but it is pseudo-random because a number generated by a program (algorithm) is by definition not random. That said, for 99% of use cases, pseudo-random numbers are considered random enough.

In short: yes the random spinning wheel is truly random and unbiased. Moreover, it can't be rigged! There is no way you can influence the chances of landing on a segment sooner. Changing the timing settings on the wheel will not influence the randomness in any way.

Is it possible to cheat

No! The wheel result is completely randomized. We do not run any pre-processing steps or other decision-making algorithms. The result the wheel lands on is chosen completely random and can not be rigged.
