Baby Names Based on Astrology

Looking to the stars and focusing on astrology can be a great way to help you decide on the perfect name for your baby. And there is more than one way you can do this. For example, you can look to the common characteristics of their zodiac sign, or look up what letter is best to start the name with. However, we've decided to take a different route.

We've chosen to concentrate on the meaning behind the name in respect to things like the elements and colours related to each zodiac sign.

For example, if your baby's due date is between July 23rd and August 22nd (and they arrived on time!) they would be a Leo. So we would suggest baby names with meanings that are related to the element of Fire, the colours yellow, orange and gold, the symbol of the lion, and so on.

Now there are only four elements across the twelve zodiac signs, so the list you will see below will have three astrological signs grouped with one element. That being said, we do also have a few individual suggestions to choose from as well!

The four elements are; Fire (which is Aries, Leo and Sagittarius), Water (which is Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio), Air (which is Aquarius, Gemini and Libra) and Earth (which is Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn).

Note: A lot of meanings behind names can be conflicting. Some people say the meaning behind a certain name means one thing, and others say something completely different. However the meanings we have decided on come from the website Behind the Name. This website offers a huge list of meanings, origins, and more behind a wide range of names, and we believe this source to be the best choice.

We also received our research on the star signs from the Astrology Zodiac Signs website. There, you can find in-depth information on each of the twelve signs, including material on their elements, rulers and their qualities.

We really hope you find what you're looking for! Enjoy!
