13 Summer-Themed Baby Names For Your Future Beach Babe


Summertime is the epitome of fresh and new. The days are long, plants are in bloom, and, oftentimes, families are expanding. If you're expecting a baby from the months of June to August, considering a summer-themed baby name for your newest addition is a sweet way to celebrate their birth. And even if your baby is due during another time of the year, these names are sweet enough to fit anyone.

There's something about the season you were born in that generates an automatic fondness towards it. I was born in the fall, so, naturally, it's my favorite season. Giving your child a name reminiscent of the season of their birth is the perfect way to solidify their love for summer.

Not to mention most of these name are completely gorgeous. If you're a lover of nature names, you've come to the right place. From times of the month, to certain plants that only flower in the summer, to words from other languages, these baby names are sure to make a splash (see what I did there?) and take the hard work out of choosing a name. Because, let's be honest, we all know that it's one of the hardest parts of having a new baby.

1. August

Meaning "majestic or venerable," August is the perfect summertime name — even if your baby isn't born in that month. It's a great choice for either a boy or girl; it can be short for Augustus or stand on its own.

2. Summer

There isn't a more fitting summer baby name than this one. This seasonal name's popularity has been rising since the '70s and won't stop anytime soon.

10. River
