But what about the season?
If you’re expecting a baby in the next couple of months, there are some really lovely winter baby name ideas — whether as a first or middle name.
Nameberry rounded up 11 cold-weather baby name ideas, and here are my favorites of the bunch:
Demeter (Demi) 1 of 8Demeter was the Greek goddess responsible for winter. (And the nickname "Demi" might make the name that much more desirable.)
Jack 2 of 8...as in Jack Frost!
January 3 of 8Most famously associated with Mad Men actress January Jones, this is one of the new popular month names (following already-established April, May, June, and August.)
March 4 of 8And another month name! This one reminds me of the March sisters, although it's one of the few month names that's suitable for a boy.
Neve 5 of 8Neve comes from the Latin word for snow.
Winter (Winnie) 6 of 8Seasonal names are nothing new — with Summer and Autumn firmly planted in the baby-name world. In fact, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden used "Winter" as their first daughter's middle name. And if you want to use it as a first name, it has the cute "Winnie" nickname.
North 7 of 8Directional names got popular in 2012 (i.e. West, Easton, etc.), so why not North? Would you use it?
Lumi 8 of 8A Nameberry reader suggest the unusual "Lumi," considering it's the Finnish word for snow.
