Summer is arguably one of the most beautiful seasons of the year. So, if you’re expecting a baby between June to August, consider giving your infant a name that honors this warm season. There are tons of delicate, feminine names with a connection to the summer, which would be perfect for a baby girl. Consider these 14 options to inspire your summer baby’s name.
Summer is one of the best seasons to watch the sunrise. If this is one of your favorite activities, consider Dawn for your summer baby. This is the word given to the first appearance of light in the sky as sunrise begins, giving the moniker a special golden meaning.
All the flowers and trees bloom in the summer, making it an ideal season for floral lovers. If you want a baby girl name with a special connection to nature, consider Flora as an option. As Nameberry explains, this name has roots in Latin and means ‘flower.’
If you’re looking for something out-of-the-box, consider Aelia. It’s a fitting choice for parents drawn to classic girls’ names like Allie and Aurora but who want something less common. This delicate name has roots in Roman and means ‘sun,’ Happiest Baby explains.
The sun shines the brightest and stays out the longest in the summer, making any name that references the sky’s brightest star. For that reason, consider Eleodora. Originating in Spanish, this stunning name means ‘gift of sun.’ There are plenty of nicknames that can be used with this moniker, like Elle, Ellie, and Eleonora.
For the same reason, consider Calendar for your summer baby. This name has roots in Hindi and means ‘sun.’ Your baby girl will be the brightest part of your universe, making this feminine name a fitting choice. Consider Kallie as a nickname.
If you like the idea of an animal-themed name, consider Birdie. What to Expect explains this name means ‘bright’ in German. The summer is the best season to spot birds in nature (and if you’re lucky, a nest with babies), making this a perfect name for any little girl born in the summer.
If you love spending time by the beach in the summer, consider the name Coral. This is a twist on the ultra-feminine name Cora, which has Greek origins and means ‘maiden.’ Coral is a reference to the stony substance that forms large reefs in the ocean and is often dazzling in color and appearance.
If you’re looking for a classic girl’s name, then consider Rose for your little one. Like most flowers, roses thrive in the warm summer weather. This floral name is an easy way to reference the season without being too out-of-the-box. Consider Rosalina, Roseanne, or Rosalind for different variations.
If you like the idea of a flower-inspired name, Daisy is another great option to keep on your list. This is a classic baby girl name that’s been popular for decades. It’s less common nowadays, making it a more unique option than other names on this list.
Another flower-themed name that screams girly-girl is Blossom. Moms Who Think recommends this name because of its reference to all the blooming flowers and plants in the summer. Meaning ‘to thrive and flourish,’ your little one will surely have success in life with such a striking name.
If you’re expecting a baby girl in June, then it’s a no-brainer to consider naming her after her birth month. June is a classic girl’s name that was more popular several decades ago, but it’s still a sweet choice. If you want something a bit different, consider Juniper, which is a reference to the shrub of the same name.
If your baby is due in July, then consider a name that pays homage to the birth month. While July may not be a widely accepted name, Ruby is. This gem is the birthstone of July, giving it a subtle reference to the summer month. Plus, Ru is an adorable nickname!
There’s nothing more summer than sitting in a blooming meadow having a picnic. This image screams summer, which is why Meadow is a fitting name for babies born in this season. With such a striking name, your baby girl is bound to develop a love and respect for the outdoors.
Finally, if you want a feminine name that literally means summer, consider naming your baby girl after the season itself. Summer is a classic girl’s name that’s been more commonly used in the past. Breathe new life into the name by giving it to your summer baby.
