August themed baby names

User Rating: / 0

When it comes to holidays, August doesn't have a lot to offer. It brings heat, humidity and not much in the way of baby name inspiration — or does it? We took a closer look and rounded up several names perfect for an August baby boy or girl.

Baby names with August roots

Several names come to us from the roots August and Leo, the zodiac sign that runs until August 22. Some folks might think these names are a bit too themed for a child born in August, but others find it odd to meet a child named August who was born in May. If you find yourself on the fence, these names fit into the middle name slot perfectly.

Baby names inspired by famous lefties

August 13 is National Lefthanders' Day. Will your baby be one of the ten percent celebrating?

Baby names inspired by prominent virologists

August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Why not choose a baby name that pays homage to one of these incredible vaccine pioneers and immunologists?

Back-to-school baby names inspired by famous educators
