September is the first autumn month. The month when the trees slowly start changing their colour, and the month when we officially all start getting excited about hibernation, about cosying up at home, about the prospect of both Halloween and holiday season around the corner.

And, if you are also preparing for the arrival of a new family member in September, we have rounded up some gorgeous names perfect for an early autumn baby:

1. Linden

Several trees produce a beautifully coloured array of fallen leaves in autumn, and Linden is one of these.

2. Rowan

Rowan is the name of the flowering tree with tiny red berries.

3. Ash

Another tree name we think work equally well as a human first name.
