The Best Baby Names for Every Zodiac Sign

Naming your baby is no easy task. You want to choose a name that’s unique and stands out from the crowd, but you also don’t want to give your future offspring a moniker that’s so out there that it will get them teased on the playground (and have to go through the process of changing it, a la Amy Schumer). So, what’s a parent-to-be to do? Look to the stars, of course. Here, a list of adorable baby names according to their zodiac sign.
