Between the warm weather and the warmer people, Southern charm is real, y鈥檃ll. If you spend your time daydreaming about biscuits, porch swings, and old-fashioned good manners, here are 15 Southern baby names that are lovelier than a tall glass of sweet tea.

1. Austin: Shortened for Augustine and meaning 鈥渕agnificent,鈥 this traditionally boys鈥 name (number 32 on Nameberry) has started to become popular for girls as well.

2. Belle: Belle means 鈥渂eautiful鈥 in French, and it鈥檚 about to be on everyone鈥檚 shortlist when Emma Watson magically sings and dances her way through Disney鈥檚 upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

3. Beau: The name means 鈥渉andsome,鈥 which is perfect for a Southern gent. Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott just welcomed their fifth child, a son named Beau Dean.

4. Blanche: Originally a French royalty name, Blanche has been more recently associated with Southern heroines like Blanche DuBois from A Streetcar Named Desire and the sassy Blanche Devereaux from TV鈥檚 Golden Girls.

5. Chance: This name isn鈥檛 a bad gamble, as it鈥檚 been in the top 250 every year since 2005 (except when it was number 258 in 2005). The name also made musical headlines when Chance (short for Chancellor) the Rapper recently took home three Grammy awards.

6. Emmett: Meaning 鈥渢ruth鈥 or 鈥渦niversal,鈥 Emmett can be used for either gender and is becoming a trendy new twist on popular girls name Emma.

7. Frankie: The 鈥80s saw British pop band Frankie Goes to Hollywood launch their hit single 鈥淩elax鈥 (remember those 鈥淔rankie says relax鈥 tees?). A nickname for Francis or Frances, Frankie is now used equally for boys and girls. Both Lake Bell and Drew Barrymore named their daughters Frankie.

8. Georgia: The state name has been the star of many hit songs 鈥 鈥淕eorgia on My Mind,鈥 鈥淢idnight Train to Georgia,鈥 and 鈥淪weet Georgia Brown,鈥 for example 鈥 and is a lovely name no matter what part of the country you鈥檙e from.

9. Harley: Traditionally a male name, Harley has been increasingly used for girls. Margot Robbie鈥檚 2016鈥檚 Suicide Squad super-villain Harley Quinn was such a standout character that she inspired countless Halloween costumes and a spinoff film, so Harley鈥檚 star could continue rising.

10. Magnolia: Magnolias are so elegant, fragrant, and quintessentially Southern that they鈥檙e the state flower for not one but two states: Louisiana and Mississippi. Probably best immortalized in the tearjerker Steel Magnolias, this flower name is a sweet choice for a little girl.

11. Peyton: Peyton has been considered an all-American male name a la Peyton Manning, but it has been an increasingly popular choice for girls over the years (currently a top 100 US name).

12. Savannah: From the oldest city in Georgia to a zesty Girl Scout Cookie, Savannah has been a crowd pleaser since the 1880s and was number 38 in the US in 2015. Famous namesakes include Queen Elizabeth鈥檚 first great-grandchild, Savannah Anne Kathleen, and The Today Show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie.

13. Scarlett: If there鈥檚 anyone who personifies the Southern belle, it鈥檚 Gone With the Wind鈥檚 Scarlett O鈥橦ara. But the name Scarlett, which means 鈥渞ed,鈥 has not faded away over the years 鈥 Hollywood has Scarlett Johansson, and both Mick Jagger and Sylvester Stallone have daughters named Elizabeth Scarlett and Scarlet.

14. Talullah: Talullah or Tallulah is an Irish name which means 鈥渓ady of abundance.鈥 It鈥檚 something a little different for unconventional parents; Demi Moore and Bruce Willis named their youngest daughter Tallulah Belle.

15. Tennessee: This name with Cherokee origins can be gender neutral. Most notable male namesakes include playwright Tennessee Williams and the youngest son of Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth (perhaps a nod to the actress鈥檚 home state).
