American Baby Names Get Sexier

Next Valentine’s Day, you may be sending greetings to your little Amour, your Venus or your Bliss. Romantic, sultry names that have long been favorites for exotic dancers are climbing the girl baby name charts. Today’s parents want names that make an impact and help their kids feel special. That has sent names from Valentina and Delilah to Heaven and Miracle mainstream.


Look beyond the most common names, and you’ll find there’s almost no limit to romantic baby names. See for yourself — all of these names were given to at least five newborn America girls in a recent year.

What do you think of these “hot” names?  Are there any that you think will rise to be mainstream hits like Arianna and Destiny?
