Our Favorite Baby Names For Southern Belles
One way to know you’re talking to a Southern woman is, of course, by her accent. But sometimes you can tell someone is Southern just from their name. If you meet a girl with a double name, she’s almost guaranteed to be from the South, and many of the names we've suggested have been combined to make double names. Southerners love to follow tradition, so it’s no surprise that many of these names are classics like Catherine, Elizabeth, and Mary. Southerners are also proud of where they’re from, so Southern belle names like Savannah and Georgia are used often, as well as Southern belle names inspired by Southern authors, singers, and characters, like Scarlett, Dolly, and Harper. Even if you don’t choose a Southern name off this list, the true mark of a Southern belle is in the way she carries herself, and if Mama is involved at all, you know she’ll be raised just right. Which of these Southern belle names is your favorite?
