Every parent wants to give their baby-to-be the best start possible, which usually begins with a unique baby name. Some parents look to the heavens for inspirations for names, while others look to family origins across the ocean. When looking for a moniker with a lucky feel to it, naming a tiny tot after things that usually tip the scales of luck in one’s favor like horseshoe, coin, or seven are not the only options. From Irish baby names to names that mean "lucky," give your baby a lucky name that's filled with enough fortune to skip the rabbit's foot.
