Auden

A more original choice than the so-popular-it’s-everywhere Aidan, this one means “old friend”—perfect for a wise-beyond-his years little guy.

Lucy

It means “light” and inevitably (for Beatles fans, at least) conjures a starry-eyed girl with diamonds. Ideal for your escapist little dreamer.

Clementine

It conjures delicious sweetness but actually means “gentle”—one of this star sign’s standout traits.

Juliet

Pisces are born romantics and you can’t help but be lovestruck by Shakespeare’s original dream girl.

Maia

According to Roman lore, she’s the mother earth and the goddess of spring. And though your babe will be born before March 21, you have total permission to name her after the month of May.

Brooks (Or Brooke for a girl)

The name conjures water, babbling and is close to the beginning of the alphabet—all predictors of success.

Marlowe

It means “driftwood,” and its poetic roots (as in Shakespeare’s contemporary Christopher Marlowe) make it just right for your intuitive little artiste. PS: It’s what Sienna Miller named her daughter, so say no more.

Rain

For empathic little Pisces who love their alone time, it doesn’t get cooler or fresher than this.

Tallulah

This one means “lady of abundance” and “leaping water”—so she’s guaranteed to make friends at the beach.

Caspian

Name him after the majestic sea that connects Europe and Asia, and watch him conquer the world.

Dylan

It means “son of the sea” in Welsh, but it suits daughters equally well.

Nile

It means “dark blue” in Hebrew and Arabic and of course nods to Egypt’s great river so it’s a match made in heaven for this spiritual star sign. Just don’t expect him to find inner peace until college.
