Fall is many people’s favorite season, when the boots and sweaters come out, the air gets chilly, and the leaves change colors. Fall is the season of apple pies, decorative gourds, and all things pumpkin. Along with seasonal foods and colors, seasonal names can be a nice way of choosing a name for your baby that connects them to the world. Picking a name that symbolizes the season of your baby’s birth can also provide some inspiration if you’re stuck. If you’re expecting in the final months of the year, you might want to consider choosing a baby name inspired by fall.
And, really, the options are endless. Pumpkin is the obvious choice, and if your last name happens to begin with an “L,” it might be hard to resist the PSL initials. It would be a subtle nod to everyone’s favorite fall drink, and no one would even have to know. Also high on the list of options are fall spices, like Chai and Cinnamon. Your baby would not only look delicious (because who doesn’t want to nom babies), but sound delicious, as well. Kale and Chard make appearances on some baby name lists, which may be options if you’re into eating healthy and also unconcerned with food gentrification.
But, seriously, here are some less obvious options for fall-inspired baby names to commemorate everyone’s favorite season.
