20 baby names inspired by the solar system that are simply out of this world

Settling on a name for your bundle can be tough.

Whatever name you pick has to be popular, but not so popular that they will be sharing the name with half of their eventual class at school.

It has to be unique, but not too unique. And, understandably, you'd want it to sound perfect with your surname.

So it's easy to see why parents are pulling inspiration from just about everywhere as they try and settle on the perfect moniker for their little one.

Some people look to Hollywood's famous faces, while others turn to their favourite TV shows or movies.

Nature is even a good source of inspiration, with new floral baby names always blooming.

But some people are now turning to the skies in the search to find a name of their little one in the hopes to ignite their name search.

Over the years, the solar system, constellations or simply a single star have leant themselves pretty well to becoming some stand-out names.
