If you’re struggling to think of a name for your future winter-born baby, why not look to the stars — literally. If your delivery date falls between Jan. 20 and Feb. 18, then you may want to consider an Aquarius-inspired baby name. But before saddling your child with a star-inspired moniker, you may want to know more about it, right?

Speaking as a card-carrying Aquarius, I can tell you a lot about this astrological sign. For starters, the qualities of an Aquarius capture the depth, power, and changing tides of water. Aquarians are also labeled as big dreamers who want to change the world, which is a pretty great trait to instill in a child if you ask me.

But like every sign in the Zodiac, there are a few things Aquarians can work on in the personality department. Known as one of the most stubborn and rebellious astrological signs, Aquarians can be difficult to get through to at times. So a word to the wise — if you have an Aquarius baby on the way — start practicing your calming breaths, because you're going to need them.

When it comes to choosing a baby name that is inspired by a birth sign, think about the things specific to that sign. This list gives you ideas for names that beautifully capture the traits of an Aquarius.
