35 Autumn inspired baby names for your little one


The weather is starting to change, there’s a chill in the air, the leaves are getting crisp and brown and for us in the studio that means one thing… Autumn babies. And with Autumn babies, comes Autumn baby names! There are so many autumnal themed names that you can choose for your baby and we’ve compiled a list of our favourite seasonal names to get you inspired. Have you considered any of these names for your October and November babies?

Octavia – Although this name actually means eight, it is often used as a name inspired by the tenth month for October born babies. Other variations include Ottavia – an Italian version of Octavia or the male version Octavius.

Opal – This traditionally female name means ‘precious gem’ and is the official birthstone of the month of October.

Autumn – it is technically the start of autumn, right?. We love this literal take on an Autumn inspired name.

Marigold – This adorable floral inspired name is the official birth flower of October.

Libby – This cute girls name is inspired by the month of October’s main star sign, Libra.

Gaia – A name of Greek origin that means “the earth.” Inspired by the Goddess Gaia in ancient Greek mythology, known as the mother goddess, she was the personification of the Earth. She also sent Scorpius the scorpion to Earth and Scorpio is one of October and November’s star signs!
