Horoscope Baby Names
Finding inspiration for naming your baby is not always easy. If you’re struggling to find the perfect name, why not look to your little one’s star sign – each star sign is said to have different personality traits.
Take a look at some of the lovely names we’ve matched up with each sign of the zodiac!
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
Unique thinkers, Aquarians are thought to be among the most loyal of the star signs. For a girl, the name Penelope is often said to mean loyal, and for a boy the name Dillon is said to reflect this quality.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)
Many say that those born under the star sign Pisces are amongst the most sympathetic and understanding people. The names Darryl and Adelaide are both said to mean sympathetic. The sign of Pisces is of course a fish, so names like Marina or Kai (which means sea) could also reflect this sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
Strong willed and stubborn, Aries is said to be one of the strongest and most determined signs in the zodiac. The names Alexandra, Alexa and Alexis are all strong names for a baby girl which mean ‘man’s defender’. For a boy, the name Lewis means ‘famous warrior’, while the name Seth is often said to mean stubborn and determined. These are all lovely choices which tie in with this sign!
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Taurus babies are said to be cool and calm, and the star sign most in tune with nature. For a little girl, a name like Carmen, meaning garden, or Serena, meaning peaceful, are good Taurus names! For a boy, the name Milo, which also means peaceful, or the increasingly popular Camden, which means valley tie in well with this sign.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Gemini is the most playful and mischievous sign of the zodiac! If your daughter is a Gemini, the name Chloe, meaning youthful, or Elin, meaning mischievous, are names you might want to consider! For a boy, the name Isaac is a great Gemini name – it means ‘he will laugh’. Since the sign of Gemini is twins, the name Thomas (which is sometimes said to mean twins) is another good choice.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
Comforting and compassionate, Cancerians are romantic, family orientated people. A name like Samantha, which means ‘listener’ is reflective of this. For a little boy, the names Noah, meaning comfort, and Curtis, meaning considerate, are perfect for your son if he’s born under this sign. Another beautiful name for a Cancerian girl is Luna, meaning moon – the moon is this sign’s ruling planet!
Leo (July 23 – August 23)
Devoted but very proud, Leos are said to be adventurous and wise people. The most obvious way to go when naming a baby after this sign is to look to the lion symbol! For a boy, names meaning lion (so Leo or Leonardo for a boy, and Aria for a girl) are lovely choices. However, the names Sophia and Alfie which both mean wise (a very positive attribute of this sign) are worth considering too!
Virgo (August 24 – September 23)
Virgos are sensitive, kind hearted people, with a strong faith in others. Names such as Phoebe (meaning radiant and shining) and Evangeline (meaning bearer of good news) are lovely names to consider if you have a daughter born under this sign! For a baby boy, the name Nicolas, which can be said to mean ‘victory of the people’ is a perfect choice for a Virgo boy!
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
Symbolised by a set of scales, Libra born people are often described as balanced, trustworthy and hard working. The names Amelia, which means hard working, and Amina, meaning trustworthy, are then excellent choices for Libra girls! For a boy, the name Edward is a strong, classic name meaning ‘protector of wealth’, while Penn is a more unusual choice, meaning trustworthy.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
Stubborn, passionate and clever are three terms with which Scorpio os often associated! If your little one is born under Scorpio, these are some lovely names worth thinking about – for a girl, the names Cleo, which means passionate or for a boy, Connor, which means strong willed. The name Quinn is a unisex name meaning intelligent, which is another interesting choice.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 22)
Those born under the sign Sagittarius are said to be curious, honest people, who love to travel. In honour of that, the names Charlie, which means ‘free man’ and Christopher, the Patron Saint of Travellers, are great choices for boys born under this sign. For a girl, the name Hermione, made famous of course by the Harry Potter series, can also mean ‘traveller’, while the name Alice is said to mean ‘the truthful one’, reflecting the Sagittarian honesty.
Capricorn (December 23 – January 20)
Patient, ambitious and strong are key words of Capricorn babies! For a little girl, the name Emilie, meaning ambitious, or the name Patience itself, are lovely choices. For a boy, the name Bryce, meaning ambitious, or Ethan meaning strong and firm are definitely names worth thinking about for this sign!
