As winter fades and聽springtime rolls around each year, it brings with it gorgeous blooms聽and new beginnings 鈥 including newborn babies! For expectant parents who want to incorporate the lively season into their little one鈥檚聽name and avoid repeating one of the top baby names of all time, there鈥檚 a bevy聽of fresh ideas. Here, we鈥檙e sharing 20 spring-inspired names for little ones born in the spring months. Your charming pick will be extra fun to announce at your springy pastel baby shower!


1. April: Taking a literal approach tonaming a spring baby is never a bad idea when you decide on a signature as sweet as this.

2. May/Mae: April showers don鈥檛 just bring May flowers; sometimes they herald the upcoming arrival of a new little soul in the world too. For a聽slightly less on-the-nose option, spelling the name聽with an 鈥渆鈥 instead of a 鈥測鈥 is just as聽charming.

3. June: This classic name evokes two distinct聽images: that of 1950s femininity (remember June Cleaver?) and those final glorious days of school just before summer break. Yes, please.

4. Gemini: For a more celestial take on a springtime name, babies born between May 21 and June 21 arrive under the Gemini sun sign, so why not give a nod to the stars in聽their name?

5. Vera: The Spanish word for spring is 鈥減rimavera,鈥 and while you might not wish to name your child after a pasta sauce, a simple 鈥淰era鈥 is beautiful and unique on its own.

6. Verde: Why not tip your hat to the fact that spring makes everything fresh and green again? The Spanish word for the color itself is a sweet, artful way to commemorate the time of year.

7. Flora: Everyone loves a sweet-tempered, innocent newborn. For springtme聽parents, they get to enjoy their bundle of joy along with beautiful blooms that are waking up from聽a long winter鈥檚 nap. It鈥檚 easy to see why this Spanish-influenced name is ideal.

8. Fleur: Any Francophiles in the house? See 鈥淔lora鈥 above, but give it a French twist instead.

9. Feder:聽For tykes聽with German heritage (or parents who fell in love on a聽semester abroad in Berlin), the German word for the feather聽(pronounced 鈥淔ee-dah鈥) couldn鈥檛 be more perfect for honoring the return of chirping birds.

10. Chloe: Greek in origin, this name means 鈥渇resh blooming鈥 and was used by Demeter, the Greek goddess of agriculture. That鈥檚 a powerful namesake if ever we鈥檝e heard one.

11. Iris:聽This flowering plant is known for its beautiful聽blue springtime blooms, and while we鈥檙e on the topic, who doesn鈥檛 love style icon Iris Apfel?

12. Aviv: Hebrew for 鈥渟pring,鈥 this sonorous聽name sounds just like music when you say it out loud.

13.聽Jade: Instantly calling to mind the color green, this name is associated with more than one kind of rock; it鈥檚 also the name of rock 鈥榥 roller Mick Jagger鈥檚 daughter with former wife Bianca.

14. Leif/Leaf: Whether you choose the Scandinavian or Anglican spelling, this one鈥檚 an obvious choice when paying homage to the season when bare branches spring聽back to life. The association with a strong, nature-loving Viking will suit your little guy well as he grows.

15. Primrose: Hunger Games aficionados, represent!

16. Lily/Lilly/Lili: Simple and sweet, this classic name never goes out of style, no matter how you spell it.

17. Pearl: The gemstone for June couldn鈥檛 be a sweeter or more timeless name for a baby born in the month when spring turns to summer.

18. Sakura: Japanese cherry blossoms are synonymous with early spring, and the proper word for them couldn鈥檛 be a more elegant name.

19. Tano: Swahili for the number five, this strong name could be ideal for a baby boy born in May, the fifth month of the year.

20. Laverna: In French, this name literally means 鈥渂orn in the springtime.鈥 Need we say more?
