The most extreme posh baby names in the history of ever

These names are even posher than Posh Spice, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn combined.  Here are our top picks for chic, classy and ultra-cute posh baby names for your little lady or gentleman.

Some names are just designed to turn heads

We’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up the ultra-edgy, extra-charming, uber-graceful names of 2017. They are pretty much the epitome of elegance. These names all made Tatler’s annual Posh Baby Name list and are pretty much the epitome of over-the-top elegance. The high-end magazine believes that these 52 names, rich in history, mythology and culture, should return to the baby name charts.

What do you think of the selection? Would you be game to give any of these opulent names a go?

Grand and gorgeous girls’ names

In addition to the classic baby names that ooze with elegance (think Charlotte, Elizabeth, Grace, Audrey and Victoria), Tatler’s choice of posh baby names for this year include some interesting finds.

Some are certainly sweet (I adore Jori, Idabelle and Zenia), while others are a little too unique even for the most extreme baby namers out there (Koala and Hum, for example). But, hey, to each their own. Here are the 26 girl’s name that made the infamous list:
