Maybe it's because the letter "A" is linked in my head to good grades and making my parents proud, but I've always had a soft spot for names beginning with that letter. If I ever have a girl, her middle name will be my sister's first name, Amy. There are plenty of reasons why a particular letter can stick out to you and there's no right or wrong way to go about choosing which moniker you think fits your munchkin best. If you want to start at the beginning, there are plenty of baby names that start with "A" for your baby-to-be.
Baby names that begin with the first letter of the alphabet are an added bonus if this is going to be your first child. If you plan to have more, you continue the theme and just go in alphabetical order. Additionally, since many lovely words start with "A," I've known of parents who specifically chose it so that they could spell something out that had significance to them by using their child's initials.
Even if you aren't totally set on using the first letter as the inspiration for your future son's or daughter's name, it's still fun to explore your options. So here are some interesting, unique, and beautiful baby names that start with "A."
