Happy first day of March! If you’re expecting a new arrival, you’ve got nearly a full year to look forward to, and just in time for spring! This week is home to several celebrity birthdays-from Justin Bieber to Daniel Craig. March is sometimes used for a name in itself, but you can also go with other seasonal names. Earthly or calm names are perfect for March babies as we move into the next part of the year.
Here are our favorite names for March babies in 2013!
Juniper (Latin): Berry bush
Ainsley (Gaelic): One’s own meadow
Breeze (English): Refreshing; Calm
Blossom (English): Flowerlike
Canyon (English): Canyon
Clover (English): Clover; Luck
Hunter (English): Hunter
Patrick (Latin): A wise and noble man
Any season is the best season when babies are born. The months of anticipation leading up to that day will be like no other. Your son or daughter doesn’t need to be born during the summer to have a sunny season name, but if you are expecting a birthday during the hotter months, summer names might be at the top of your list.
Summer names are a good idea for parents wanting to choose names less likely to be repeated several times on classroom lists, but not so wild that they’ll make news headlines. Expecting parents can plan out a single syllable middle name as well to let your baby’s name pack a summer punch!
