With Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour making its way into countless headlines, social media posts and everyday conversations, what better time is there to use Taylor-Swift-inspired names?

Whether you’re a dedicated writer or just need a name to use in your English project, there are many ways you can use these unique names from Swift herself–13, to be exact, to match her favorite number.

1. Hazel

This name celebrates Swift’s most recent song release, the acoustic version of her popular song from Midnights, “Lavender Haze”.

2. Grace

This name comes from “State of Grace (Taylor’s Version)”, which is the first track of Red (Taylor’s Version), and one of the most popular off of the album.

3. Ronan

“Ronan” is the name of one of Swift’s lesser-known songs–specifically, the least-streamed song from Red (Taylor’s Version).

4. Paris

“Paris” was released on Swift’s newest album, Midnights, and celebrates the isolation a couple feels when truly in love, a beautiful premise for a character’s name.

5. Rebekah

Swift’s iconic folklore album brought us “the last great american dynasty”, a tale of Rebekah and her husband, who previously owned the lakeside house Swift now owns.

6. August

It seems that folklore has arguably the most name inspiration out of all of Swift’s albums. With the folklore love triangle (the songs “cardigan”, “betty” and “august,” which work together to create an intricate storyline of a high school romance that almost fell apart), the least-known song is “august.”August is a unisex name that would work for a variety of character archetypes.

7. Willow

Swift dropped evermore at the end of 2020 as folklore‘s sister album with “willow” as the most popular track by far.

8.  Carolina

Swift sung “Carolina” for the hit movie Where the Crawdads Sing.

9. Meredith

Meredith is the name of one of Swift’s three cats.

10. Daisy

Specifically “Daisy May”, as in the lyric of “You’re On Your Own, Kid” from Midnights: “So long, Daisy May.”

11. Archer

One of the lesser-known tracks from Lover, which has recently been gaining in popularity, is “The Archer”, and it can double as a character name!

12. Ivy

From evermore, “ivy” is a fan-favorite that never gets old, just like this unique name.

13. Epiphany

Lastly, this name comes from folklore, and is a Greek name that means “manifestation” or “striking appearance,” a fun base for a character.
