12 Winning Baby Names Inspired By A League Of Their Own

These picks are perfect for your little “Peach.”

Prime Video

In 1992, A League of Their Own hit theaters — and a classic was born. Now, fans can relive the feminist fun with Prime Video's new original series. And if you're expecting, you may realize the franchise is full of baby-naming inspo! Here are a few especially great picks.

Columbia Pictures

Dottie

Before we dive into the rookies, let’s get the legends out of the way, starting with big Dottie Hinson — the “best player in the league.” No wonder this English name means “gift of God.”

Kit

Dottie’s kid sister in the movie was full of fire, which makes this retro name feel extra-spirited. And since it means “pure,” it’s got some sweet and salty vibes going on, too. Fitting!

Columbia Pictures

Mae

Rounding out the starting lineup is “All the Way Mae,” memorably played in the film by Madonna. A diminutive of Mary or Margaret, this name means “pearl.”

Columbia Pictures

Carson

Meet the new series’ version of Dottie! Carson (played by Abbi Jacobson) is also a catcher from a small farming town who blows people away with her talent. Although it means “son of marsh-dwellers,” it’s a great gender-neutral name.

Max

Not only does Max arguably have one of the coolest names among the newcomers, but this gutsy pitcher can throw a fastball like you wouldn’t believe. And she fights for what she believes in! Appropriately, this name means “greatest.”

Greta

If you adored D’Arcy Carden in The Good Place and Barry, you’ll adore her even more as brazen ballplayer Greta Grill. Another vintage favorite, this Germanic name means “pearl” and is shared by creative greats like Greta Garbo and Greta Gerwig.

Clance

As you’ll soon find in the series, everyone needs a friend like Clance! Max’s BFF, she’s the steadying presence people need. Of Gaelic origin, Clance is thought to mean “reddish” or “ruddy.”

Lupe

For starters, this name means “wolf,” and how fierce is that?! But also, Lupe (played by Roberta Colindrez) is a deadpan pitcher from Texas who you can’t help but root for.

Cohen

Actor and comedian Kate Berlant stars as Shirley Cohen in the series, an endearingly awkward and anxious player. And while Shirley is lovely, we really dig the gender-neutral name Cohen, which means “priest.”

Esti

The youngest member of the new Rockford Peaches, Esti is a recent immigrant from Havana who is fun, bubbly, and amusing. It feels pretty appropriate, then, that this Persian name means “star.”

Maybelle

This blonde baller says she can outrun and eat more hotdogs than any dude, and we’re here for that. A diminutive of Amabel, Maybelle means “lovable.” Plus, Maybelle’s last name is Fox, which makes an excellent name.

Jo

Jo is bringing all the big Doris energy you could hope for! And like Rosie O’Donnell’s OG character, this power hitter from Queens proves fiercely protective of her friends. This name, a diminutive of Josephine, means “God is gracious.”
