The Best Baby Names for Every Zodiac Sign
You and your hubby are at your wits' end trying to come up with the perfect baby name, but don’t fret: The ideal one has already been written in the stars. (We kid. Sort of.) Here, the best baby name options, according to your kid’s astrological sign.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18): Ruth or Hamilton
Rule abider your Aquarius baby is not. They’re born with an innate curiosity and passion for new faces and places waiting to be explored. (This might be why your kid is so bold on the playground and has no qualms being passed around your mommy group.) You need a name that suits a deep thinker—and a distinguished one at that.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20): Grace or Beau
Other parents are in awe of your kid’s coloring skills, but to you, it’s only natural, given that Pisces babies are as artistic as they come. They’re also open-minded and highly sensitive to others (including siblings). Choose a name that reflects their flexibility and kindness—any of these Southern names will do nicely.
Aries (March 21 to April 19): Gemma or Dax
Holy confidence, baby. Aries kids are destined to be independent and creative. They’re also mini trailblazers, walking and talking well before the rest of their peers. So go ahead and pick a name that’s unique, edgy and unlike anything else on the playground.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Waverly or Bryant
The best part about a Taurus baby is how calm and practical they are. That said, they know what they like and how to get it. (Which is why the peas—not the pasta—always wind up on the floor.) To reflect their chill attitude and strong will, go with a New York-inspired hipster name.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20): Reese or Stevie
Gemini babies are smart and tenacious, but they also have an affinity for the silly—and uncontrollable giggle fits. Go for a name that’s playful and doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22): Fleur or River
Your baby will probably be a creative visionary—someone who’s able to cut through the clutter and see things clearly when others cannot. Go for a sensitive nature-inspired name—and bonus points if it harkens back to their water sign.
Leo (July 23 to August 22): Danielle or Phoenix
Prepare yourself—your baby is going to be fierce, loyal and overly protective (especially when it comes to sharing their mom). They’re also prone to mood swings, but that’s just because they’re so enthusiastic about all the things they do. You need a name that reflects their lion-like passion and fiery spirit.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22): Pippa or Arthur
Look out, you’ve got a future leader on your hands. Virgo babies are detail-oriented perfectionists, which is why they look at you so gleefully over accomplishments big and small (like potty training or eating all the veggies off their plate). You need a name—like these regal options—that speaks to their commitment to success.
Libra (September 23 to October 22): Harmony or Paxton
Libras are charming, balanced and hyper-observant. They’re also good-natured and have a true sense of who they are. Go for a name that exemplifies their peaceful and social nature.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21): Dusty Rose or Hero
Never ones to haphazardly roll off a changing table, Scorpio babies are born with startling intuition. It’s why they’re so comfortable in their own skin and OK marching to the beat of their own drum. Find an exotic name that reflects this innate sense of self.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21): Sydney or Austin
Your Sagittarius baby is a wanderer who wants to see the world. It’s probably because they’re so optimistic, happy and confident. Pick a name that speaks to one of your favorite places to nurture their travel-loving spirit.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19): Rosa or Abe
Once your Capricorn baby has their sights on a goal—like cracking the code to get into your iPhone even though the parental lock is on—they’ll stop at nothing to see it through. They’re ambitious and hardworking and never one to give up on their dreams. Name them after a political or social leader and they’ll live up to everybody’s expectations.
