When looking for baby names many parents take inspiration from what they binged on TV. 

Bridgerton has been a huge hit for Netflix since it was launched onto the streaming platform in December. 

And now Bridgerton baby names are set to inspire parents looking for beautiful baby name ideas. 

This blog post will bring the names of Bridgerton characters together in one list and give you the meanings of the names so you can pick your favourite!

The names from the hit show are very traditional as the show is based in Regency era London and follows the romantic entanglements of high society families. 

Bridgerton baby name trend

In the hit TV show the Bridgerton children are named in alphabetical order. 

However the Featherington children’s names all begin with the same letter, P. 

Some parents may want to take inspiration from that, without using specific names from the show. 

But the actual names from the show are brilliant! They suit parents who love the vintage or traditional baby name trends. 

Some of the characters names form Bridgerton such as Rose, Oliver, Henry and Charlotte are already featuring in popular baby name charts.

However other names such as Daphne haven’t been popular choices for some time. The popularity of Bridgerton could well help this name experience a surge in popularity!

Georgina’s character does not feature in the hit TV show but author Julia Quinn has featured her in the Bridgerton book First Comes Scandal.

Violet is the Bridgerton children’s mother in the show. 

Bridgerton boy names 

Baby boy

Benedict

An unusual and masculine name that means blessed.

Benedict is the second of the Bridgerton men.

Duke 

This name means “leader”.

The name Duke takes inspiration from the lead character Simon who is the Duke of Hastings.

Sir Henry Granville is an artist in the show who becomes friends with Benedict.

Lord

If you are looking for an unusual name that stands out then this is a great choice! The name means “loaf-keeper”.

The TV show Bridgerton focuses on high society in London and so there are a lot of Lords in the series.

Quinn

This is a great unusual choice for a boy and can also be used as a girl’s name. It means “counsel”.

There is no character called Quinn in the Bridgerton series but the original book’s author is called Julia Quinn.

Simon 

Meaning “hearing” or “listen”, this has not been in the top charts for baby names for a while so it’s not a top choice in terms of modern names.

In Bridgerton Simon is the lead male character who romances Daphne.

William 

This name means “strong-willed warrior”.

Will is a friend of Simon, the Duke of Hastings, and also a boxer in the Netflix show.

Taking inspiration from the Bridgerton characters names is a great idea. 

But you can also look to the names of the cast if you are a huge fan of the show. 

Here are some baby names inspired by the Bridgerton cast: 

  • Ben
  • Jamie 
  • Julie 
  • Luka 
  • Nicola 
  • Phoebe
  • Phoebe
  • Ruby
  • Sabrina 

Bonus baby name idea based on Bridgerton: Julia! She is the author of the Bridgerton series of novels on which the TV series is based. I’ve read the first four books of the series and thoroughly recommend you give them a try if you loved the TV show. 

Final thoughts on the Bridgerton baby name trend

My personal favourites from the Bridgeton baby names trend are Daphne, Penelope, Quinn and Henry. 

With a new series of Bridgerton hopefully being made by Netflix soon there should be some more inspiration from this fun show soon.

If you cannot get enough of Bridgerton I recommend you give the books a try!
