Southern Female Names Beginning with A

Here are some traditional southern female names beginning with the letter A. I hope to work my way through the more traditional southern names for girls as well as to list some unique names that may have been used within families for generations that are not common to the general population.

I had thought, when beginning this project, that I'd find that feminine southern baby names would be predominately associated with particular cultures or countries. I was surprised to find that the southern female names were equally divided between names of Celtic or Irish origins, Latin, Hebrew with a few French names for good measure.
