Next up on our list is Rachelle. There are a few different ways to spell this name with an “R,” too—Rebecca, Rebekah, Reina..the variety of spelling can depend on which country you’re from or what language it’s spelled in!

Below are 101 different variations on “R” girl names-some traditional favorites as well as less common choices. If one of these doesn’t suit your needs, there may be another spelling or variation listed right below it.

No matter what language you speak-or even if you don’t!-you’re sure to find the perfect name for your little girl.
