We all want a baby name that shows off how special our kids are -- and some of us want a name that has a little sparkle to it.

Emily Cardoza, a blogger at BabyNameWizard.com, has identified luxurious baby names that are both extraordinary and have a certain swag element to them.

"These [baby] names embody that sense of wealth and power," notes Emily. "If one is looking for an auspicious choice to bring fortune and fame to their little one, look no further!"

    Well of course we're going to make room for Jewel on a list of luxurious baby names! And as it turns out, this elegant unisex title (that's right, you can use Jewel for girls and boys) has been around for quite some time. "It may sound like a twenty-first century name, but Jewel has long been bestowed upon precious baby girls, reaching the top 200 in 1904," Emily reveals. "Now that Ruby and Pearl have come back into fashion, sparkling Jewel won't be far behind."

    Not every baby name associated with luxury has to be an obvious choice. Valor is a title with great significance, as Merriam-Webster defines it as "strength of mind or spirit that enables a person to encounter danger with firmness."

    "A worthy successor to Victor and Vincent, Valor maintains a winning spirit and an uncommon but familiar sound," Emily notes. "It's short and chic, but masculine and compelling." Yeah, we like that.

  • Dior

    Now you know it was only a matter of time before a designer label popped up on this baby name list. Dior is adorable and makes us feel like Charlize Theron is going to sashay down the hall with a bag of diapers. Emily Cardoza of BabyNameWizard.com notes "Dior is glamorous and glittering" -- and we couldn't agree more!

    Titan isn't just a strong name, but one that packs a mighty blow. Titans are the OGs of Greek Mythology that proceeded powerhouses like Zeus and Hades and make for an unforgettable baby name. "This powerful choice could shorten to the friendly nickname Ty, but its mythological and cinematic links keep Titan strong," Emily mentions. With a name like Titan, there's a very good chance your child could become a future leader who will have great influence on the world. 

  • Copper

    Although you might not associate this malleable element with all things luxury, Copper is a gender-neutral name that leaves a colorful impression -- and just might remind you of a certain Disney film. "Though it's best known as the name of a character in The Fox and the Hound, Copper could work as a radiant alternative to Carter or Cooper," says Emily Cardoza of BabyNameWizard.com. "It's likable and pleasant, but not used too often as a noun -- making it a perfect 'word name' pick."

  • Prosper

    Every parent wants his or her child to "live long and prosper," which is why we're not surprised to find the name Prosper on BabyNameWizard.com's list of most luxurious baby names. Prosper is a powerful title that means "to succeed in enterprise or activity," or "to achieve economic success." So yeah, it definitely fits the criteria.

    "While this shimmering choice has yet to be recorded, the Hunger Games series has ignited the interest of many in Glimmer," Emily Cardoza, blogger at BabyNameWizard.com, reveals. The name Glimmer is an unconventional choice, but is one with a luminous quality that might make for a great option for your daughter.

  • Royce

    Style aficionados will love how dressy the name Royce is. Pulling inspiration from a certain popular luxury vehicle, Royce, a noted surname that means "Roy's son," is quite fetch. "A kingly choice, Royce has begun to rise again," Emily notes. "Of course, its vintage vibe isn't the only draw -- the Rolls-Royce company has been promoting their luxury image since 1904, inspiring parents to go the brand-name route."

  • Everest

    Everest is a baby name that will take your child's clout to new heights. Aside from being a popular destination for hikers -- and the Earth's highest mountain -- Everest is a unisex baby name that Emily calls "monumental, but not unconquerable." It's a rare baby name option, but one that will certainly stand out.

    Lux is a dazzling name that's truly illuminating, as it takes a page from the Spanish luz, which means "light." It's short, catchy, and a title that's associated with opulence. "Lux is prominent in pop culture -- from League of Legends to The Virgin Suicides -- and would work especially well as a stylish middle choice," says Emily.

  • Chanel

    Classics never go out of style, and neither will the iconic name Chanel. Inspired by the fashion designer Coco Chanel, this baby name is sweet and incredibly luxurious. "While her [Coco Chanel's] nickname is also slowly rising for girls, Chanel is a posh pick, both fashionable and formidable," notes BabyNameWizard.com blogger, Emily Cardoza.

  • Armani

    "Both Italian and Persian in origin, Armani is a sleek, cross-cultural choice for the sophisticated," Emily reveals. We've all heard the dashing name Armani (the name is Persian for "freeman") that conjures up images of some upscale event with Leonardo DiCaprio giving us that beautiful Great Gatsby nod. It's a dashing name that's perfect for a little boy or a girl.

    In addition to Royce's making this list of luxurious baby names, one car-inspired baby name you simply can't pass up is Mercedes. Hailing from the Spanish merced that means "mercy," Mercedes is also a title that pays homage to the Virgin Mary. "Both aspects help this name balance between a classic, religious image and a contemporary, secular sound, fantastic for all types of little girls," notes Emily.

  • Laurent

    Parents who bestow the name Laurent on their child will score major style points. Not only is it all sorts of dreamy, but it's also a designer choice that has strong roots. "Of course, there's designer Yves Saint Laurent, but the name also has fortunate origins," Emily reveals. "Laurent comes from the same Latin root as 'laurel,' a plant and a symbol of victory." Pretty cool, right?
