  • Believe it or not, autumn boasts a range of gorgeous baby names for girls and boys alike!

    As the leaves start falling and you make your preparation for the winter months ahead, have a look at our top list if you’re after something seasonal to name your little one.

    Girls autumn baby names

    Aurelia

    Aurelia means ‘golden’, and has been popular since the Roman Empire.

    Bramble

    Yes, like a blackberry bush – or the gin cocktail!

    Hazel

    A steady favourite, but this one definitely screams ‘autumn’. It calls to mind the gathering of hazelnuts to store over winter, which is what humans did before we had supermarkets.

    Amber

    Again, golden and orangey colours always remind you of autumn!

    Scarlett

    Reddish-brown for this timeless favourite.

    Persephone

    The famous wife of Hades, and the goddess of vegetation, who started the whole season thing in the first place.

    Jora

    This means ‘autumn rain’ in Hebrew – and could work as a shout-out to your favourite Game of Thrones guy!

    Rhea

    This lovely name means ‘a flowing stream’, tying in with the autumnal woodland theme.

    October

    If you’re brave enough, October is easily the most autumnal month, what with Halloween and everything.

    Laurel

    A nice twist on the name Laura, and is also a beautiful tree.

    Boys autumn baby names

    Wheatley

    Like the harvesting of golden wheat.

    Like Ash trees.

    Rusty

    Again with the warm, reddish hues.

    Forrest

    For a baby you just know is going to be an adventurer.

    Ash

    Bonfires, Guy Fawkes, evenings curled in front of the fireplace…

    Lennox

    This Scottish name is linked to the elm tree, which loses its leaves in the fall.

    Cormac

    The Irish boys’ name meaning ‘tree trunk’ and ‘charioteer’ is popular in Celtic mythology, and sounds rather autumnal.

    Aki

    This literally means ‘autumn’ in Japanese. What more could you want?

    Griffin

    This means ‘prince’, but we think it sounds like a mythical fiery autumnal animal.

    Jack

    Like Jack-o-lantern… get it?

    Oakley

    Autumn is for sure the spotlight season for trees.
