Best Astrology Baby Names

Picking out a name for your little one is probably high on your priority list of things to get done when you’re expecting a baby. But where to start? You can go with sentimental names, family names, trending names—the list goes on. But if you’re into astrology and excited by the idea of matching a name with your baby’s due date, you’re in luck! We’ve compiled a list of baby names representing each zodiac sign to help make deciding on a baby name easier.

A little astrological primer: While we have characteristics from all 12 zodiac signs, whether it’s our birth sign or not, the sun and moon traits are usually the strongest. An astrological birth chart reading would reveal your baby’s moon sign, but the sun sign is whatever zodiac season coincides with their birth date. Let that guide you as you check out the list below. The names represent various traits of the zodiac signs—and sound pretty cool too! Some of the names you’ll find here are more common; others more unusual. Hopefully you’ll find some baby name inspiration, whether it’s tied to your baby’s sign or not.
