When choosing names, parents often don't know exactly what name they are looking for. But they may have a style or sound of name in mind. One of those sounds that they might be looking for are names ending with a. Sometimes there looking for a name to match a sibling name, and sometimes it's because they simply like the sound.

Popular Pattern in Girl Names

Names ending in the letter a are a common name pattern for girls. It is not as popular for boys (See Boy Names Ending in A), but there are options for boys as well. Using the 2011 Popular Baby Name Lists supplied by the Social Security administration, 395 of the top 1000 baby names for girls ended in the letter a. That's a pretty significant chunk.

For boys, there were only 8 (yes, 8) names that ending in the letter a. However, another 23 names ending in the -ah combo, which also provide the "a" sound (See link above for full list).
