Names for Dolls
Names for Dolls | Source

A doll is a gorgeous, cute character friend to a little girl. Her name is so beautiful that it describes everything about her. She's feminine, she's pretty, she's everything a little girl wants of a friend and her toy companion. The little doll is going to be a year old when her little friend is one as well. She'll be 10 when her friend is 10, and she'll be 21 when her friend is grown up. She listens to all her woes. She knows who's to blame, what's unfair, and where the fairies live. She'll listen to all dreams. She's in the dreams. She'll be a part of the plan. She'll go everywhere and listen to everything, have exactly the same opinions her friend has (advice too) and like her, she hates to be left out. She's a constant companion, and keeps the secrets. She's a doll!

Constant friends and companions like these have to have the prettiest, most endearing, most flattering names little girls can get their mouths round. Here are lists of 50 doll names for different kinds of doll friends. I hope you find them as beautiful as your doll. You'll find the following in this article:

  • Cute names that are musical and full of warm vowels for small children
  • Names for dolls with personality
  • Important names for very important characters
  • Friendly names
  • Rag doll and plush toy names

Name Ideas for a Personality Doll

Some dolls have got great personalities too. You can see straight away, either by her smile, her dress, or her hair. There's an aura about them, much like there is about a person. You can't help but to think that they need a certain sort of name that goes with that certain something about them.

They remind you of someone in a fairy story perhaps, or there is a name that's always sounded beautiful. I loved the name Philomena when I was little. So, I named my doll Philomena and thought she was the most beautiful Philomena of all time. Below is a list of names that might spark a memory of a name you've always heard and loved, or just suddenly love now. Whatever it is, that's just the right name for your doll.

Nobody knows why this name is so special, except the doll and her owner-friend and when they hear that name (or see it written), that's it! That's the doll's true name. Could it be one of the following names?

Important Names

Important names, of course, are for regal, sophisticated, and important dolls. I think the following are very important-sounding names:

  • Prudence
  • Clarita
  • Gwendolyn
  • Corey Lee
  • Angharad
  • Philomena
  • Në Në Nia

Cute Dolls with Friendly Names

This last list is for names that are not very often heard around the nursery or playground. These are originals, for unique dolls that are friendly, good, and devoted. These names are for dolls that like a bit of mischief and fun from time to time!

  • Pippina
  • Nina
  • Madge
  • Pia Piu
  • Sherri
  • Bellina
  • Carrie
  • Bella
  • Ju ju
  • Cass Lassie

Rag Dolls and Plush Toy Names

The softness of a rag doll's face, surrounded by her thick hair with those long sausage legs, and her pretty dress make her so endearing and cuddly-lovable that her name needs to be cuddly too. How about a name like one of these?

  • Pru
  • Pudding
  • Pandy
  • Pollyanna
  • Henrietta

      Let's hope that happens then, if this is what you want! My granddaughters are so cute. They love their toys and we just love naming them. My biggest granddaughter has a white bear with long legs which she named Oscar. The funny thing is that she had difficulty saying the S, so he was O-car.

      Thanks for comment.

      Hmmm... I can't seem to remember what names I have named on my dolls but I agree with Miss GoodLady, classic names are good because they sounds elegant and so lady-like. I like the name Elise, Anne, Anna, Maurice, Lauren, Lily, any names with Belle on it like Annabelle, Lizbelle, Mariebelle etc. Thanks for sharing the 50 cute doll names. I am a grown up now and I don't play dolls anymore but who knows I might get married someday and have a daughter. I'll be sharing the cute doll names you suggested... :D

      I'd call them by very classic names such as Victoria or Vicky, Eleonora, Suzanne, or Suzanna, Ingrid, Christina. They are such life like dolls!

      Fun stuff :) Exploring names with little girls is fun stuff, too. When my daughter was tiny I made her tiny doll, just right for her little hands. Embroidering golden curls using french knots to copy her own little curls is a memory I still carry. We named this little doll Arabella and I love the name for dolls to this day. Thanks for reminding me of this today! :)
