Picking out a meaningful name for your baby is no easy task, so if you’re struggling to come up with something, one place to draw some inspiration is from their astrological sign. For
babies born in late-April and May, consider adding a few Taurus-inspired baby names to your list of options. Whether you want a name that’s classic or totally unique, you’re sure to find something you love.
Babies who are born between April 20 and May 20 fall under the
Taurus, or bull, sign, and if they end up being anything like their astrological profile, you can expect a patient and reliable kiddo who might also be a little bougie thanks to their love of the finer things in life. You can expect your Taurus baby to love soft blankets, soothing environments, and snuggles (which is unlikely to change even after they’ve grown out of the baby stage), and all of this can be used as inspiration for choosing their name.
If you love the idea of naming your baby after their astrological sign, but don’t want it to be overly obvious, there are plenty of options for you. There is no shortage of gorgeous names to choose from that are a subtle nod to their sign or are so loosely related that you may be the only one to realize the connection without having to explain it.
Whether you want something low key or would love to really lean into their astrological sign, here are some adorable Taurus inspired baby names to consider for your little one.
Since Taurus is an Earth sign, names that associate with the earth are excellent options, like Aaron which means “high mountain.”
While you may associate the name Venus with the word “love,” it’s actually the ruling planet of Taurus, making it a perfect name choice for a little Taurus baby.
Tauruses are often described as being reliable or trustworthy, and Aminah is an Arabic name that means “trustworthy” and “faithful”
If you’re looking for a little more of an obvious nod to their Taurus sign, name your baby Taura, which is Latin for “like a bull.”
Rose actually has a double meaning when it comes to Taurus because a rose is one of the sign’s flowers
and its spirit color is pink. 7 Emerald
This may be a more unique name, but Taurus’ lucky gem is an emerald, so it could be a really fun name for a little Taurus baby. It’s a really good choice if you’re a fan of nicknames because you could call them Emmy for short.
Adam means “son of the red earth,” so how could there be a better name for an Earth sign baby?

The bull is the animal symbol for Taurus, which is strong and sturdy. Garret is an Irish name that means “spear strength,” which could serve as a subtle way to honor your baby’s sign.
If your baby is born between April 20 and 30, then they are both an April baby and a Taurus baby and the name April will fit them perfectly.
Another name that represents the Taurus bull? Angus. It’s simultaneously a well-known word while also being a unique name, and you can always call the baby “Gus” for short (which is just downright cute).
Sticking with the earth-themed names, consider calling your little Taurus Wesley, which translates to “western meadow.”
Ami is another name that can mean “reliable” (an outstanding trait found in most Tauruses) or “beloved.” Go with whichever meaning is most important to you and run with it.
Truman is a name you don’t hear very often, but it’s perfect for your Taurus baby as it means “loyal one” and those born under the Taurus sign are known for being fiercely loyal and protective of their loved ones.
While “Rose” is the obvious name for a nod at the Taurus flower, Rhodes is a more subtle option that means “where roses grew.”
April’s birthstone is a diamond, and babies born in the last 10 days of the month fall into the Taurus sign, so while it’s not an obvious way to honor the astrological sign, it is a fun sneaky way to do it.
Primavera is a fun spring baby name that literally translates from French to English as “spring.” It also has an earthy vibe with the seasonal meaning, and it has some cute nicknames like Pri and Vera.
In Greek mythology, Gaia is the name of the goddess of the earth. What name could better represent an Earth sign baby?

Mila is such a gorgeous Russian baby name that means “industrious” and “hardworking.” It’s a lovely name that really taps into those Taurus qualities of hardworking and dependable.
For a little lady who is strong like her astrological animal, name her Millie, which translates to “gentle strength” and “strong in work.”

Just like birthstones, everyone has a birth flower, too, and babies born in May get the lily of the valley. So, even though it’s not the official flower of Taurus, it still honors the sign since anyone born between May 1 and 20 falls under the Taurus sign.
Sticking with the actual gem of the Taurus sign, Esme is a French name that means emerald. It’s also a name that has seen increasing popularity over the years in the United States.
Another notable trait in a Taurus is their patience. If you’re hoping your Taurus baby will exhibit this more often than not, name them Sabri, which means “patient.”
For a more feminine name that also means patience, consider the Arabic name Halimah.
Georgia is an adorable name for a baby no matter what their sign is, but it works really well for Earth sign babies since it means “farmer.”
Not only is the name Oz just downright cool, it also means “strength,” which aligns well with the Taurus bull. Even better, it’s also Hebrew for “powerful” and “courageous,” so your baby will be bound to be a tough little cookie.
Since the emerald is the gem for the Taurus sign and is green, Denver is also a cute choice for a Taurus baby name as it means “green valley.” It could also be a fun gender-neutral option.
Bree is short for Bridget and means “strength” or “exalted one,” which gives some great vibes for Taurus, because it’s considered one of the grounded Earth signs that is steadfast and strong.
Babies born between May 1 and 20 are Taurus babies, so the name “May” can serve as a little nod to their sign (and possibly their birth month).
April’s flower is the daisy, which happens to make for a really cute baby name. Daisy is a fun way to honor your baby’s birth month and astrological sign all at once.
The baby name Hazel has gained a lot of popularity over the years, but it has a great earthy vibe and is perfect for your Taurus baby.
Tess is an English name that means “to harvest.” This is another option that acknowledges Taurus as one of the Earth signs.
Technically, Fern means “bold voyager,” which is a wonderful sentiment to have behind your child’s name, but it’s specifically a good choice for a Taurus baby because of its association with the earth.
April 20 through May 20 are the Taurus dates, and they just happen to be right in the thick of spring, so choosing a baby name like Odeletta, which means “little spring,” is a sweet choice.
Dillon is a gorgeous, spunky baby name that means “loyal,” which perfectly matches the attributes of a Taurus. It’s also a great gender neutral name and can be spelled in a variety of ways.
Oliver is a strong, steadfast name that means “olive tree,” which has major earthy vibes and is perfect for Taurus, an Earth sign.
Why not just go all out and name your baby after their astrological sign entirely? After all, Taurus is a name that is associated with traits like strength, reliability, persistence, and stability, and who wouldn’t want those things for their child?
Taurus baby names can run the gamut from earthy names for your little bull baby to names that focus on Taurus qualities like loyalty, dependability, and great work ethics. Choose your favorite that takes in all of those Taurus vibes that are most important to you.
