Astrid means "Godly strength." Such a great name to honor the strong mama who's been carrying her around for 9 months.

7

Autumn

Clearly a great September name being that September is the month that kicks off the autumn season. Such a great way to honor your baby's birth month.

8

Beyoncé

OK, I had to put this one in there somewhere. Yes, an homage to the Beyoncé, whose birthday is on Sept. 4. I know, there's only one Beyoncé, but seriously, what if your little one is the next one? Only one way to find out.

Daffodil, or Daf for short if you'd like, is a bright yellow flower that happens to be in season during September, making it a great September baby name.

Fall is a great name to honor your baby's birth season, but did you know that it can also mean "waterfall" or "forest clearing"? It's also pretty unique.

As in Jimmy Fallon of course, whose birthday is Sept. 19. Happy Birthday, Jimmy!

12

Gregorian

When you look up the month September, you'll find multiple sources saying that September is the ninth month of the year on the Gregorian calendar, but you can always just go with Greg for short.

13

Hazel

A great fall name because of the brown-green color associated with it, it also has some cozy, vintage vibes like the season. The name Hazel became a given name in the 19th century and it's been making a comeback.

14

Hunter

Whether you're a fan of the deep green color associated with this name or you want to honor the traditional meaning, this is the perfect September name for a boy or even a girl. Love that.

15

Another honorary name for a flower that is in season during the month of September.

16

Since September's birthstone is a deep blue color, it makes Indigo a notable option for a unisex baby name.

Julian

Upon researching the month of September, you'll find that September is the ninth calendar month of the Julian calendar.

Lilies are in season in the autumn months. If you've always wanted a baby Lily and you're due during the month of September, this name is absolute perfection.

21

Magnolia

Another flower that is in season during the month of September, according to Bridal Guide. You can bet nobody else will have this name, too.

22

Paul

Paul for the much loved actor Paul Walker (RIP), who was born Sept. 12.

23

Rose

Another classic name for a flower that is in season during the month of September. Also, there's this awesome movie called Titanic with a sassy yet inspiring character named Rose, and she's pretty awesome — just sayin'.

24

Sapphire

The gorgeous deep blue gem stone called a sapphire just so happens to be the designated birth stone for the month of September, making this such an awesome name for a September baby.

This name always reminds me of Mark Twain's character, Tom Sawyer, and of course the classic 1995 film, Tom and Huck. The name Sawyer means woodcutter, and September definitely gives off those vibes.

26

Septa

OK, bear with me on this one. September is from the latin word septem. If you add an -a at the end and take away the -em, you get a pretty cool name and also a completely underrated character in Game of Thrones. You're welcome.

27

September

Of course this is an obvious choice given it’s the name of the birth month. But September brings the end of summer and beginning of the autumn season, which means it symbolizes the absolute best seasonal change all year. (In my opinion.) Honestly, it's also just a sweet name for your fall kiddo.

28

Tabitha

Tabitha means "gazelle" or refers to a woman who was "restored back to life," and with September's seasonal change, this is such a cool name.

29

Virgo

The other zodiac sign that occurs in September, of course. Virgo means "the virgin" in Latin. Virgo season runs until Sept. 22, the first day of fall.

Zinnias are beautiful flowers that are in season during the month of September. And they make a pretty cool name, too.
