Springtime and newborns have a lot in common. They’re long-awaited, “its all” fresh( um, apart from the nappies ), and both signify the beginning of a new chapter of life. Awww.
If — like many other members of the animal kingdom — you’re expecting a springtime arrival, it’s only fitting to prefer a newborn name that reflects the vibrant, renewed feeling of this joyful time of year. Right?
These names are inspired by everything springtime, from its botanical bounty, to the animals emerging from their wintertime hideaways, to the ancient deities and astrological signs that rule over the season.
( See the full list of spring newborn names here .)
The fragrant perfume of this beautiful flowering bush is one of the hallmarks of springtime — and their soft purples hue is right on par with this year’s predicted trend in muted coloring names, fitting right in with counterparts Navy, Gray, and Mauve.
At first glance this may not seem to have anything to do with springtime — but it’s a Greek name entailing” green shoot ,” as in the kind that pokes up through the dirt when the sun finally decides to come out and warm the earth on a consistent basis.
This name means “mother,” and it’s an homage to the fertility of Maia, the Roman goddess of springtime, for whom the month of May is named. Of course, the name Mae itself can be a perfectly fitting homage, too.
The appeal of term names is that they invoke feelings. When you hear Meadow, you are able to practically feel the breeze as it rustles through the lush green grasses and beautiful wildflowers, and if that doesn’t scream “spring,” I don’t know what does.
Bird names have always been popular( bet you know a Robin !). But while some can feel a little dated, Wren has a more modern feel. It’s simple, cheerful, and understated. If Wren’s not your cup of tea, or you prefer a more unisex name, you could go with Lark or Sparrow.
A botanical name, but not as finely flowery as Lily, Rose, or Violet, and synonymous with good fortune. Clover is found in almost all types of climates, so the name indicates something hardy and adaptable — great qualities for your little spring-born girl.
The name of the Nordic goddess of fertility, love, and beauty, linked to new springtime growth. But don’t let that buffoon you. Freya provokes a sense of strength; she was also the goddess of war, after all.
April babies get the privilege of having this sparkler as their birthstone. But while diamonds may famously be” a girl’s best friend ,” the name itself can be unisex.
A small, babbling stream — a.k.a. a creek — fits perfectly into a spring scenery, and they seem to come to life once the winter releases its icy grip on their waters and allows them to move freely again. Brooks runs better for a baby son, but for girls, there’s always Brooke.
Babies born from March 20 -April 20 will fall under this astrological sign, so why not make it clear from the first introduction? That is, if their stubborn ram nature doesn’t dedicate it away before then.
Derived from the Latin ” Pascha ,” which means “Easter,” this French version of the name was traditionally given to little boys born around that holiday … which is always in the spring, which makes this name fit perfectly into the list.
Not only human babies are born in the spring — it’s prime baby season for many species, and a chance to celebrate the joy of new life. You don’t really wanna name your kid Calf or Chick, but Colt is a fine option!( Got a girl? Try Fawn .)
In the Christian tradition, Palm Sunday takes place on the Sunday before Easter, and celebrates Jesus’s arrival in Jerusalem, when people lined his route with palm leaves. Palmer is a fitting, yet subtle nod to this time of year, as the name doesn’t immediately stimulate you think of spring.
Some sources say this name entails “stream,” and others say it entails” bee bungalow ,” but either meaning is great for a spring newborn — especially the latter, since spring is the beginning of beekeeping season, and bees are frequent guests of all those gorgeous spring blooms blooming.
What’s the main appeal of springtime? The amazing transformation of nature, of course! And nowhere is that transformation more evident than in a wood, where the bare trees suddenly leaf out into tint.( Wanna get even more specific — and, okay, a little crunchier? There’s always Leaf .)
