Doll Names

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

A Toy Doll Name 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 dolls true name. Could it be one of the following names?

  • 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 original names, 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!

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

Very cute! My dog is called Emmy Lou, incidentally :) My own doll was Angela/Angie. My daughter only ever liked two dolls, a twin boy and girl who she called Noah and Julian for some reason!

GoodLady profile image

GoodLady 3 years ago from Rome, Italy Author

How interesting. Which one was Julian - the boy or girl twin? So bizarre which name surfaces to the top. My grand daughter's doll is called Oscar! Should have made a longer list.

Many thanks for your comment. So appreciated.

This is something that I would never have thought of - both my children were boys and the closest they came to dolls were action figures like GI Joe. They didn't need names with soft vowels, LOL.

I'll have to take some of these to my youngest granddaughter and see what she thinks.

I'd really like to know what she thinks so come back to tell! Thank you.

So cute! When I was little, choosing the perfect name for every doll and stuffed animal was an important ceremony. My mom gave me an old baby name book and I would study if for hours until I found the "perfect" name. Today, I do the same when naming pets and cars. Really enjoyed this!

GoodLady profile image

GoodLady 3 years ago from Rome, Italy Author

Oh! I'd have loved it if you told us some of those names here. Choosing just the right name is so important and then when the little character becomes 'ours', well it's them, it's Shirley, or BenBold, or Froggles or whoever, and forever it's them, isn't it?

Come back and tell us just one of your names, please!!

Indeed! Even though those toys are long gone, I still associate them with their names whenever I hear them. This really brought back some memories. Here are some of the ones I that I used;

Dolls: Margot, Meaghan, Lida, Dexter, Christopher, Strawberry, Beth-Ann, Casey, Sukie, Gloria...

Plush animals: Kitty-Scarlett ( I read Gone With The Wind when I was nine and had a short obsession period), Pinkie, Colonel Pick, Jethro, Karen, Pixie, Gilly,...

All the little toys we had, like plastic dinosaurs and cowboys had names. Sometimes we named favorite crayons. I even named my pillow.

We had a farm, and every single animal was named as well. I guess we were weird, we had over two hundred animals and knew each one by name. It wasn't unusual for one of us to say " Have you seen Corky today? I think she may have had her pigs" or " Come help! Randolph is out of the pasture."

We have a beloved truck in the family that is named Ringo. We've had cars and trucks named Rosie, Bonnie, Betty, Mario, and Sonny.

I guess you could say that I love names, and they do seem to make things more real. Not just toys when we are children. I find that when we give the items a name, they also develop a personality. When items have personality, we tend to care for them more.

Thanks for telling us your toys names. I wonder if we don't all call our every toy and pet something cute? When we're little I mean. As grown ups lots of us lose the fantasy. Goldfish had some good names too. We had Flish Fish. Can't forget him! Oh what a wonderful world. We're always naming my granddaughter's dolls and plush toys now. Love it. Thanks again.

I love Flish Fish! That is so cute! Sometimes naming animals can be hard. We named a pig George...and he was one of the ones that we raised for meat. Now I can't hear the name George without thinking about Poor George the pig! Still good fun though!

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! :)

GoodLady 2 years ago from Rome, Italy Author

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!

Thanks for asking!

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

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.
