36 Heavenly Baby Girl Names Inspired By Astrology
Are you an avid reader of horoscopes? Fancy some celestial input when thinking about baby girl names? Here are my top three picks for each sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries is symbolised by the ram and ruled by the planet of war Mars. Here are some appropriate names for your little warrior:
Fianna – An Irish name meaning ‘warrior huntress’
Tilly – Although it sounds very cute, Tilly actually means ‘mighty in battle’
Juniper – A lovely name meaning ‘protection’
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, the bull, is ruled by Venus. If your little Taurean arrives in April you could consider:
Aibreann – meaning ‘April’ in the Irish language and as Venus was the goddess of love and beauty you could also consider:
Caris – Welsh name meaning ‘love’
Esther – A Hebrew queen who was famed for her beauty
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini is a sign ruled by Mercury and symbolised by twins. Mercury was a messenger god, so this little lady will probably be an excellent conversationalist (a.k.a. won’t stop talking!):
Ariana – with Latin origins meaning ‘vivacious’
Kalea – an unusual name meaning bright and clear
Edda - a German name translating to 'with clear goals'
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The crab is a water sign that has the moon as its ruler, so cosmic-based names are just perfect for this girl:
Celeste - a derivative of celestial, meaning 'heavenly'
Elara - a moon of Jupiter
Carina - from the Latin word 'keel', one of the five stars in the Orion constellation
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Ruled by the sun and symbolised by the mighty lion, Leos are born under a regal sign:
Adelaide - a French name meaning 'nobility'
Tia - from the Greek, translating to 'princess'
Sabrina - an old English name, it means 'legendary princess'
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
A powerful earth sign. Think all things mother nature and you’ll pick the perfect name for this baba:
Afra – a beautiful Arabic name meaning ‘colour of the earth’
Daisy – an old English name derived from the flower
Autumn – a seasonal touch to this name for September babies
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This lucky air sign is ruled by the romantic Venus. Balanced and fair, Librans are symbolised by the scales and known to be one of the most attractive signs of the zodiac:
Aleena – with Celtic origins, this name means ‘attractive and fair’
Eavan - Irish, the pretty name Eavan means ‘fair one’
Mackenzie – a Scottish name meaning ‘fair favoured one’
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
These feisty scorpions are mysterious and brave. Girls born under this water sign should be given strong names befitting their personality:
Astrid – a Danish name meaning ‘divine strength’
Karleigh - in German, the name means ‘womanly strength’
Millie – a diminutive of Amelia meaning ‘strength and determination’
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Ah, my own corner of the zodiac! Us archers are, of course, a fire sign and symbolised by the centaur (half-woman, half-horse). Sagittarians are outspoken and gregarious girls who like to be at the very centre of the action:
Aine – an Irish name meaning ‘radiance’ or ‘joy’
Nuria – a Spanish name translating from ‘bright light’ or ‘luminous’
Fia – with Latin origins, Fia is short for Fiametta and means ‘little fiery one’
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
With Saturn as their ruling planet, these girls are the hardest-working sign in the zodiac. Their can-do attitude and determination will take them far in life:
Emery – an old Norman name meaning 'brave and industrious'
Verity – coming from old French, it translates to 'truthful'
Isa – Spanish in origin and a diminutive of Isabel, it means 'devoted'
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Spontaneous and quirky, Aquarian girls are (confusingly) an air sign symbolised by a water-carrier:
Awen - derived from the Welsh word ‘awel’ meaning ‘breeze’
Aria – meaning ‘air’ in Italian
Serafina – coming from the Greek word ‘zephyr’ meaning ‘west wind’
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
The water sign Pisces is ruled by Neptune and symbolised by fish. This girl is likely to be artistic, empathic and at the centre of all the drama. Consider one of the following from your little Piscean:
Cari – a pretty name meaning ‘flows like water’
India – an ancient name meaning ‘body of trembling water’
Marin – a German variant of Maria meaning ‘of the sea’
