Scorpio baby names are as assertive and inviting as those born under the sun sign. For babies born between October 23 and November 22, they are lucky enough to call themselves Scorpios. The sign gets a bad rep due to many finding them intense but in reality, they are the most loyal of all the sun signs. Who could be mad about that? Scorpio is a water sign making names associated with water especially fitting. Other symbols and associations with sign include chrysanthemums and azaleas, opal, topaz, snakes, and eagles. Further, the colors red and black are also hallmarks.
If you’re at a loss for what name to choose for your child, Scorpio baby names are a logical choice that offer extra meaning than other appellations. These names celebrate all that makes the sign so compelling and magnetic. Check out our picks for the best Scorpio baby names starting with girls and then moving on to boys. However, be sure to scan all of the names as many are also attractively unisex. Now, let’s introduce you to some excellent baby names!
Scorpio Baby Names for Girls
Both Scorpio and Capricorn are associated with the number 8, thus making Octavia, a name of Latin origin that means “eighth,” a great option. Octavia spent years and years out of the US top 1000 most popular names for baby girls but it returned in 2017 and is now firmly in the top 500!
Kali is a name of Sanskrit origin that means “black one.” Due to Scorpio’s connection to black, this could be a most appropriate option. Kali is the Hindu goddess of destruction, the fierce part of the goddess Devi. The name has slowly been climbing the charts since 1982 and the most recent year found it ranking as the 283rd most popular name for girls.
Yet another name with a black color association, Melanie is of Greek origin and means “black ” or “dark.” Beginning in the 1940s, Melanie became one of America’s most beloved girl names. We think it would be a sweet fit for your Scorpio baby.
One of the symbols of Scorpio is the eagle. Thus, names with eagle-inspired meanings are fitting. Arden is a unisex name of English origin that means “valley of the eagle.” Chances are you have more commonly encountered the name as a surname but it is really heating up as a given name today.
Crisanta is a Spanish name of Greek origin, meaning “golden flower” and “chrysanthemum.” Because of its relationship to the chrysanthemum, the flower of the month of November, it’s one of the recommended names for Scorpio babies as well as names for November babies. The name has gone virtually unused in the US but we think it has tons of potential.
You can spell Tallulah with or without the “h.” The name is found in both Irish and Choctaw traditions and it is the Native American connection that we are looking at. The name means “leaping water.” Scorpio is a water element sign making names that connect to water appropriate. Today, the name is mildly popular in England but it has never been a widely given appellation in the US. We think it deserves more love!
Omaira is a name of Arabic origin that you don’t hear nearly enough in the US. The name has two potential meanings: “long life” and “red.” It’s the color red that we are after as it is a symbol of Scorpio and their fiery passion.
Kiernan is a unisex Irish name that means “little dark one.” Scorpios are known for being slightly dark and twisty with their main color being black. We feel that makes this name a real winner. Further, one of our favorite Scorpios, Kiernan Shipka wears the name well.
Ishhara is a Mesopotamian goddess who is associated with the scorpion. In fact, the symbol for the goddess is the scorpion. The meaning of this name is a mystery but we love its exotic sound and scorpion connection.
Mardi is a French name that means “Tuesday.” If your Scorpio baby is born on a Tuesday, you could do no better. Tuesdays are considered lucky days for Scorpios which makes the connection meaningful. This name has never been popular in the US despite being completely pretty and accessible.
Ondine is the mythological spirit of the waters in ancient Roman lore. We think the name is magical as well! Ondine’s Latin root means “little wave” which ic not only cute but also that water element connection to Scorpio.
A defining characteristic of Scorpio is power and strength. Valencia is a name of Spanish origin that means “brave” and “strong.” Currently, the name is more popular in Europe than in the states but it was a favored choice here up until the 1990s. It’s time to bring Valencia back!
If your Scorpio baby is born in October, then their birthstone is Opal. The wonderfully vintage-sounding name is of Sanskrit origin and means “gem.” Opal spent over 50 years out of the top 1000 names in the US before making a wonderful return in 2017. It’s on the rise today and it’s one of our favorite names!
Scorpio Baby Names for Boys
Dillon is a unisex name of Irish origin that means “loyal.” As we mentioned, Scorpio is the most loyal sign of the zodiac and that makes this name feel so appropriate. The Dillon spelling has been slipping for decades now with parents favoring the Welsh name Dylan. We think Dillon is classic and worthy of your consideration.
Rory is a name of Irish origin that means “red king.” Because the colors black and red are associated with Scorpio, Rory could be an excellent option for you. Further, power is a big feature of Scorpio and the king aspect of the name could be a reference to that.
Cole is a name of English origin that means “black.” The color is a symbol of Scorpio making it a most appropriate option. Cole is an extremely popular name these days resting just outside of the top 100 most popular names for boys.
With Scorpio being a water element sign, names that have water meanings are fitting. Brooks is a habitational name of English origin that means “dweller by the brook.” The name is wildly popular today and more popular than ever before in the US.
Adler is a handsome German name that hints at one of the symbols of Scorpio, the eagle. In fact, the root of the name means “eagle.” Adler is a trending name that first landed in the US top 1000 for boys in 2020. We expect enthusiasm around the appellation to only continue to grow in the coming years!
Who does not love the nicknames Oz and Ozzy? Oswald is the vehicle to get you to them. The name is of English origin and means “divine power.” Power is a huge one for Scorpio so names that incorporate the concept fit well. The name was last popular in the US in 1933. So, it’s definitely a sort of grandpa name with vintage appeal. 100+ years later, it might be time to bring this awesome appellation back!
An Italian name from Greek, Ezio is a delightful appellation that has gone virtually unused in the US. That’s a real shame. Pronounced ET-see-oh, we think it’s a winning sound that should appeal to parents looking for a unique name. It means “eagle” which is the Scorpio connection here.
Osman is a name of Arabic origin that means “son of snake.” The two main animal symbols for Scorpio are the eagle and the snake so this could be a great option. Osman is a mildly popular name. Last year, it ranked in the top 1000 for the very first time. We are thrilled about it and can’t wait to hear more of this name.
Doyle is a name of Irish origin that means “black stranger.” It’s the color connection that makes it perfect for your Scorpio baby. The name sounds so distinguished but it has not been a popular choice since the 1980s. If you’re after a serious-sounding name with gravitas, Doyle could be the perfect pick.
Another Irish name with the meaning “black” worth considering is Keir. Keir is an extremely popular name across the UK. American parents have started to take notice! We expect this name to land in the top 1000 most popular names for boys in the next few years. Isn’t it lovely?
Arnold is a name of English and German origin with two meanings: “ruler” and “strong as an eagle.” Both meanings work well for a Scorpio baby as power connects to “ruler” and, of course, the eagle is one of the animal symbols of the sign. Arnold fell from fashion in the early aughts. We think it still deserves some love!
Pronounced gah-RAH, Qara is an Azerbaijani name that means “black.” Most American parents have never encountered this one but we think it has tons of potential for your baby boy.

Parents today are celebrating the charms of the unisex name Ocean. This not-so-subtle nature name highlights Scorpio’s connection to water. The name first landed in the top 1000 most popular names for boys in 2020 and we expect it to only climb from there.
There you go! We hope you found these Scorpio baby names to be as thrilling as we did. Each one has a special meaning and connection to the sign, making them as appropriate as a name gets. If you liked learning about these names, keep reading. We’ve rounded up dozens of names for Autumn babies for you to check out.
Discover the Best Autumn Baby Names for Girls
Marigold is one of the perfect fall flower names that new parents have begun to embrace. The name is of English origin and means “golden flower.” Marigold flowers have long been associated with the Virgin Mary as a symbol of her warmth and purity. Marigold flowers are beloved and they bloom through the early months of fall. That makes Marigold a spectacular autumn baby name with considering for your baby girl.
The origin of the name Talulla is a bit complicated. It is found as a Native American name as well as an Irish one. Its Irish root comes from the name Tuilelaith which means “lady of abundance.” That makes this appellation a great choice for a Harvest or Thanksgiving baby. This name has a playful and energetic sound and while most folks have heard of it, it is rarely given as a baby name in the US today. You can change that!
In 2013, Aurelia returned to favor after 60 years of neglect from new parents. It’s tracking to crack the US top 500 most popular names for girls this year. This name can be traced back to ancient Rome where it was used as the clan name, Aurelius. Aurelia’s Latin root means “the golden one.” As an autumn baby name, Aurelia proves a remarkable option that honors this golden season.
Orla is an Irish name closely associated with the high king Brian Boru because it was the name of his sister, daughter, and niece. It was very popular in the Middle Ages (the fourth most popular name in twelfth century Ireland) and has become popular again in Ireland, Scotland, England, and Wales today. The name has not crossed the pond yet, however, which means it is a unique option that has yet to trend among parents here. The name means “golden princess,” which feels mightily appropriate as an autumn baby name.
From 1960 until 2017, Opal went out of style. This spectacular, vintage-sounding appellation has returned today and is tracking to land in the top 500 this year. The name originated in Sanskrit as a name that means “gem.” Opal is the beautiful, milky birthstone for October making it a great autumn baby name for a girl born in October or simply during the fall season.
If Aurelia felt like a fussy name to you, you might be looking for other options that celebrate the golden season. Goldie gets right to the point and feels remarkably cute. Goldie is an English name that comes from Yiddish. Goldie spent over six decades off the popularity charts before returning to the top 1000 in 2021. Parents today have rediscovered this appellation’s resplendent charms.
Sorrel is a unisex, botanical name from French that means “reddish brown.” The sorrel plant has been prized for its medicinal qualities for centuries. Sorrel is rare in the US today but could make for a distinctive choice as it has a gentle, inviting sound.
Aster flowers, like marigolds, continue to bloom into the fall season, making it an appropriate autumn baby name inspired by flowers. Aster flowers take their name from a Greek root that means “star.” Aster is a unisex option but we prefer this one for baby girls. It’s the perfect alternative to its Persian cousin, Esther.
A very sweet autumn baby name, Maple is an English tree name that comes from a Latin root that means “piece of cloth.” Maple has never been a widely used name for girls but we think it has tons of potential for nature-loving parents. Despite it being overlooked, Maple has the stately sound of an established name. Not a bit syrupy at all!
One of the Hebrew names for girls that has flown completely under the radar of most American parents is Jora. This unique appellation means “autumn rain.” We would love to hear this name more often in classrooms and on playgrounds. It is a real winner that no other girl in your daughter’s class will have.
The glowing autumn baby name Ember is the French form of Amber and it is a name that is as warm as it gets. Ember first gained traction in the US in 2009 and it has been steadily climbing ever since. While this name is growing in popularity it will undoubtedly be confused with the 1980s and 90s staple, Amber but if you don’t mind correcting a few folks, it could be a winning option for your daughter.
People lost it when Gwyneth Paltrow chose the name Apple for her daughter in 2004. Today, with the meteoric rise of all the nature baby names, it feels rather commonplace. The fall season is apple season which makes it a winning, nature-inspired option for your daughter.
Popular in Israel for girls and boys born on Shavuot, a harvest festival, Dagan has yet to capture many American parents’ imagination. Dagan is also found in Babylonian myth as a god of corn and grain which makes it feel doubly appropriate. It is from these origins that the name is taken to mean “corn and grain.”
Omaira is a name of Arabic origin that can either mean “long life” or “red.” We love the color meaning here as it reminds us of the burning color of autumn’s most beautiful foliage. Although popular in the Middle East, Omaira has yet to land on many birth certificates in the US. We feel it’s time for that to change!
If Marigold was a name that’s too on the nose for you, consider Crisanta. It is a Spanish name from Greek that means “chrysanthemum” or “golden flower.” The flowers are the birth flower for November making this name very appropriate for a baby born during the month. Despite the popular “Cris” beginning, the appellation has never been a popular choice in the US. Bring it on, parents.
Consider These Amazing Autumn Baby Names for Boys
Garner was a mildly popular name for boys up until the 1930s in the US. The name is of English origin, commonly found as a surname, which means “granary.” That makes it a beautiful autumn baby name that celebrates the harvest. Will this name make a comeback? It’s long overdue for one!
Most American parents have never heard the pleasant name Sarad but we bet they would use it if they knew it! Sarad is a name of Hindi origin that means “born in Autumn.” Let’s show this name some love, folks!
Bruno has had plenty of ups and downs when it comes to popularity in the US. Its most popular year in the US was 1915 but it’s trending up today. We think it’s a stylish choice and one of the very best autumn baby names for boys. Bruno is of German origin and means “brown.”
Omri is an Old Testament king of Israel with relation to the Harvest. The name is of Hebrew origin and means “my sheaf,” a reference to a bundle of grain that has been recently harvested. Despite being completely accessible and totally handsome, the name has not found much favor outside of Israel. Omri is a winning option and one of our favorite autumn baby names for boys.
Cedar is an attractive tree name for both boys and girls but we like it a touch more for boys. Cedar comes from French and English from a Latin root that refers to the tree. The name also has religious significance. It is mentioned in the bible: “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.” The Lebanon cedar was used to build King Solomon’s temple.
Shaqir can also be spelled Shakir but both come from an Arabic root that means “thankful.” If you are expecting your baby boy around Thanksgiving, it could make for a really appropriate and meaningful choice.
Lugh is the Irish god of the harvest, who also rules over truth, the law, and the arts. His magic includes a fiery spear and a boat that sails itself. He is celebrated in a pagan festival called Lughnasa. While most will likely assume Lou, Lugh is a name worth defending. It has never been popular in the US which feels completely unreal to us.
A rad alternative to Bradley, Radley is a name of English origin that was used as a habitational name for someone living near a “red meadow.” The name has never been a popular choice making it a unique option if you decided to put it on your baby’s birth certificate.
Maize is a gentle harvest name that does not feel the least bit corny to us. The name is of English origin and it makes us think of corn mazes and other autumnal activities. This name is only given to about a dozen babies each year and it is appropriate for both girls and boys.
One of the world’s most beloved names, Adam, is derived from Hebrew and means “son of the red earth.” The name has always been popular in the US so if you choose it, know that your Adam will be in very good company. We love the color meaning of this name which makes it a solid option among other autumn baby names.
Russell originated in French as a name that means “redhead” or “fox-colored.” Russell has been a popular name for boys in the US for over 100 years but it has been trending down over the last two decades. We think it’s a fine appellation and a great autumn baby name.
Another one of the lovely autumn baby names inspired by trees and changing leaves, Linden was a mildly popular name prior to the 1950s in the US. It has since slipped and would be a unique and distinct option today. Linden is of English origin, a habitational name for a person living near the “linden tree hill.”
Rust is sometimes used as a diminutive form of Russell but it’s also a standalone appellation for boys. This name feels much cooler than its cousin Rusty and it evokes images of red and orange, perfect for the autumn season. Rust, despite it being familiar, has never been seen as a viable option for baby boys. We think more parents should turn to it.
Hunter originated as an occupational name for, you guessed it, “a hunter.” The name is a great option for autumn when the season really kicks into high gear. This name is given to both girls and boys today and it currently sits in the US top 100 most popular names for boys. It’s a steadfast choice that will serve your family well.

Crispin captures the crispy leaves of fall and the crisp feel of the cool air. Crispin originated in Latin as a name that means “curly hair.” This name has never been popular in the US and we think it deserves more love from parents today.
