Spring baby namesWith warm weather comes Spring baby names.

Maybe you’re expecting a child in the next few months. Or maybe the lighter, brighter days suggest the qualities you love in a name.

Nature names are heavily represented, as are finds from the ancient world. But the variety is staggering. For every popular Chloe (it means green shoot in Greek, making it an obvious Spring name for a daughter), there’s a wait-what name, like Catkin. (It’s the fuzzy little flower cluster on trees like willows, and while that seems Spring-like, they grow at various times of the year. I still think it works. Also, it’s just plain fun to say!)

Let’s look at Spring baby names in depth:
