Lovely and unique names for dolls and plush toys.

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:

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 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?

Question: I wanted to know your opinion on a name for my American girl doll. Can you help me name my American girl doll?

Answer: That’s a big question, as big as America! You mean USA don’t you? I’ll presume that. There are very many ethnicities in the USA with names from the origins and cultures of all of them, so where to begin? I think I’d look at the names of early movie stars and famous movie stars like Marilyn (Monroe), or Jayne (Mansfield), Theresa (Harris) and recent female movie stars like Scarlett (Johansson), Halle (Berry), or Natalie Portman. They all have incredible names.

Question: What is a good name for a Chinese doll?

Answer: Probably a name that’s particularly Chinese sounding, at least to Western ears. Even the name ‘China’ is lovely I think. Camelia is a Chinese flower, so that’s an appropriate name. Lily in Chinese sounds like Bai Hé so that’s nice too.

Question: What name should I give to my dolly?

Answer: I’m not at all sure because I don’t know your dolly but sweet names like Luisa, Daisy, Lucy, and even Ava if you want a slightly more sophisticated name.

Question: What should I name by Barbie in India ?

Answer: I’d suggest one of the names that I’ve already mentioned in my article. Why not try reading them out loud to your doll, one at a time? Perhaps one name will pop out as just the right one. It’s the sound of a name that goes with the personality of the doll.

Question: What is a good antique doll name?

Answer: A name from 100 years ago! Victoria, Emma, Helena, Caroline; a name that sounds lovely through time and hasn’t really become ‘old fashioned’.

Question: What name would you give a doll that is one of a kind?

Answer: I think lots of dolls are ‘one of a kind’ dolls, just as their owners are ‘one of a kind’, but that’s just my opinion. Your doll obviously needs a very original name, a name nobody has heard of before so why not take all the letters of the alphabet and without looking, put your finger on a letter? That’s the first letter. Then do that again, and again until you have done that 10 times. Someone can help you. Once you have your letters I think you will see an idea. I got Morgana, then, Zaviera, Xara, Plume.

You don’t need to use all the letters, just the ones that create a name.

Question: What is a good name for a gymnast doll?

Question: What is a great name for a baby Alive?

Answer: A baby name like Babà or Tiny or Ninna, I think. She’s so little and endearing. Not sure she wants a ‘great’ name unless the name she has is just ‘Great’ for her. Would Greta be a ‘Great’ name I wonder?

Answer: Your Elsa doll might have an Italian name like Francesca, or Serena, or Enrica or even Ginevra?

Question: Can I name my baby doll Liliana?

Answer: A beautiful name, I agree.

Question: What is a good name for my baker Barbie?

Answer: I’m trying to imagine a medium-size teddy and I see a comfortable sort of size, so then I see a teddy called Chadwick, or is he Kensington? If you prefer a shorter version of those comfortable sounding names, your teddy could be Chad or Kenny.

Question: Need a cute and simple name to call a doll?
