Looking Ahead: Springtime Baby Names

on February 11, 2014

I am ready for winter to be over! I am SO DONE with the permeating cold, the wind, and the ice that is so determined to sweep my feet out from under me and make me look silly. So, to keep us all in the Northern hemisphere looking ahead to the warm breezes, sunshine, and blooming flowers, I’ve compiled a list of sprightly names suitable for springtime!

Girls:

Aileana- ‘from the green meadow’
Alba- ‘dawn’
Aliza- ‘joy’ (pronounced ah-LEE-zah)
Antheia- goddess of flowers
Aurelie- ‘golden; soft breeze’
Aviva- ‘springtime’
Calla
Camellia
Chloe- ‘green shoot’
Cira- ‘sun’
Dahlia
Daisy
Dawn
Flora
Hadley- ‘heather meadow’
Joy
Kore- another name for the goddess Persephone
Lara- ‘cheerful’
Laurel
Lily
Linette- ‘songbird’
Magnolia- nn Maggie or Nola!
Maia- a Roman goddess of springtime
Meridel- ‘joyous’
Persephone- goddess of spring growth
Rae- ‘sunbeam’
Sahar- ‘dawn’
Skye
Soleil
Susanna- ‘lily’
Zaria- ‘sunrise; morning star;” Slavic goddess of morning
Zinnia

Boys:

Apollo- God of sun, light, fertility
Bradley- ‘broad meadow’
Brooks
Cyrus- ‘sun’
Denver- ‘green valley’
Garth- ‘garden’
Keanu
Khenan- ‘rising sun’
Kiele- ‘gardenia flower’ (Hawaiian)
Pascal
Radley- ‘red meadow’
Varden/dan- ‘from the green hill’
Wesley- ‘western meadow’

Personally, I love the names Laurel, Maia, and Wesley, and I’m intrigued by Antheia, Meridel, Garth, and Radley.
