Zodiac-Inspired Baby Names for Girls

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Those born under the sign of the ram are fiery, bold, go-getters. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac making names like Una or Prima great options that reflect the sign being first. Further, the element for this sign is fire, making names with meanings that relate also appropriate. Enya is a great Irish option that means “fire.” Other possibilities include the Hebrew (unisex) name, Jubilee which means “ram’s horn” and the Persian name, Roxana, which means “dawn.”

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Folks born under the sign of the bull are often strong and grounded as the symbol suggests. We’re dealing with an earth element here which means that plenty of nature-inspired options could totally work. Chloe is a Greek name that means “young, green shoot.” Gaia is a mythical earth goddess name that could also be a winner for you. One last colorful option for Taurean babies is Terra a name of Latin origin that means “earth.”

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Geminis are a hard sign to pin down. They are eclectic and their outlooks are varied for the sign of the twins. We suggest the English, feminine form of Thomas, Thomasina, as the Aramaic root of the name means “twin.” In addition to the twin theme, names that also celebrate the sign’s air element work well. Celeste is a name that means “heavenly.” Zephyr is a unisex Greek name that means “west wind.” Aura is another Greek name that means “a gentle breeze.”

The color yellow is also associated with the sun which could offer some distinct possibilities. Zari is a Persian name that means “golden.” Buttercup is a Gemini name that speaks for itself!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Cancers are born under the sign of the crab. Thus, the moon which rules the sign, and the sea are common symbols for the water sign. Luna and Selene are two popular moon goddess names today. A less traveled option is the Turkish name Ayla which means “halo” or “moonlight.” For a name that makes a splash, go with the Celtic classic Cordelia which means “daughter of the sea.”

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Leo baby names have lots of appealing inspirations: lions, gold, and the sun, to name the three main Leo symbols. Further, the sign’s element is fire making hot names a great possibility. Aurelia is a name that means “the golden one.” Orla is another possibility and it is of Irish origin and means “golden princess.” Ariel is of Hebrew origin and means “lion of God.” Finally, Leona is a Latin appellation that means “lioness.”

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

zodiac-inspired baby names

People born under Virgo are often dependable, practical, and fiercely loyal to the ones they love. Names relating to the earth, purity, and wisdom are also great Virgo baby names as they highlight the sign’s element and the symbol of the sign, the virgin or maiden. Cora is our top pick for a Virgo girl as it means “maiden” as does the Celtic name Imogen. For a dusty yet storied appellation, go with Agnes which means “pure.” For an earthy spin, go with Ceres who is the Roman goddess of agriculture and fertility.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Libra babies grow up to be balanced and fair. Thus, Harmony (Alaina is an Irish name that means the same) and Justice are top picks and both are unisex. Libras also are governed by Venus which tends to make them big flirts and very romantic. This is another air sign of the zodiac so names that are breezy are also great. Nasima is our top pick in this regard. The name is of Arabic origin and means “breeze” and “fresh air.”

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Strongwilled and magnetic, Scorpios are associated with the water element and are governed by Pluto. Red is commonly associated with the sign so names like Scarlett and Ruby will serve you well. The Choctaw name Talullah would be a colorful option that can be taken to mean “leaping water.”

Ivara is a German name for girls that means “archer” or “yew tree.” Ember is the French form of Amber and it means “burning piece.” The sign is governed by Jupiter.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Those born under the goat are members of the hardest working and most trustworthy zodiac sign. These folks are governed by the earth element and are often driven to the point of being stubborn (just like a goat). Amina is a gorgeous option of Arabic origin that means “trustworthy” and “faithful.” Another Arabic option, Mira is taken to mean “female ruler” or “queen.” The popular name Amelia contains a German root that means “work” or “industrious.” Hermione is a distinct possibility too as its Greek root means “earthly.”

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

zodiac-inspired baby names

Names for Aquarian babies reflect the sign’s symbols of water and air. It is governed by the air element but the symbol for the sign is the cupbearer so there’s a water connection as well.

Estelle

names that mean star

Estelle is the French form of the Latin word stella which means “star.” While we totally endorse you naming your girl Stella, we thought the name Estelle was a bit more off the beaten path. You will find that most names that mean star are.

Roxana

names that mean star

A little more romantic than Roxanne, Roxana means “little star” or “dawn.” It’s a Persian name that belonged to the wife of Alexander the Great. A beautiful name for any parent who’s always wanted to call their daughter “Roxy.”

Vesper

names that mean star

The name Vesper comes from Latin and means “evening star.” It’s a mysterious and fun name for girls. Evening prayers are often called vespers in Catholic practices. For a name that connotes mystery, contemplation, and stars, Vesper is a winner.

Danica

Danica is a name of Slavic origin that is associated with Diana or Venus. The name means “morning star.” We love that this name sounds balanced, both feminine and straightforward. The name has been a mildly popular choice in the US ever since the 1970s but it has so much more potential.

Seren

names that mean star

Seren is a top girls’ name in Wales – and a lovely choice almost unknown elsewhere. Seren, in the Sirona form, was an ancient goddess of the hot springs. This name is found in both Welsh and Turkish traditions as a name meaning “star” or “sail mast.” Let’s bring this Welsh hit to the US!

Desdemona

names that mean star

Is Desdemona too much of a name for a baby girl to shoulder today? That’s up to you! it is one of the names that mean star but it’s not the happiest association. The name is of Greek origin with a root that means “ill-starred.” Desdemona is a Shakespearean name, but because the beautiful and innocent wife of Othello came to such a tragic end, her name has been avoided for centuries. We think it’s time for a revisit!

Yvaine and Yvain

names that mean star

Yvaine is a unisex name (more commonly spelled Yvain for boys) that is of Scottish origin and means “evening star.” Yvaine is considered the more feminine form of the two but if you are interested in Yvain as a boy’s name the name belonged to a Knight of the Round Table in Arthurian legend.

It’s one of the best names that mean star that parents are not using today.

Calytrix

Calytrix, pronounced CALL-uh-trix, has the potential to throw some folks but we do not think it is a dealbreaker. The name is of Greek origin as a botanical name meaning “star-flower.” The Calytrix flower is native to much of Australia and is part of the myrtle family. They are commonly known as star flowers, because of their dainty 5 petalled flowers that are usually bright white in color.

Hesper

Centuries later the name belonged to Tarabai Shinde who is often regarded as the writer of India’s first feminist text. Even the name’s meaning touts this, “feminine star.” Bravo!
