Spring is a time for new beginnings, rebirth, awakening, and of course, lovely plant life in bloom.

As such, there are plenty of baby names to choose from when it comes to this season, and I had a lot of fun compiling them for a little round-up.

1. Anemone

A truly delicate and lovely flower and an uncommon name for a little girl.

2. Apple

The apple blossoms are blooming in the spring, so why not pay them a bit of an homage?

3. April

This name isn’t used very often anymore, but I rather like it and if you had an April baby, why not?

4. Attwell

English for “lives by the spring,” but even without the meaning I LOVE the sound of this name. Such a unique name, but totally classic at the same time.

5. Aurora

Latin for “new dawn”… a fresh start.

6. Aviv

This Hebrew name literally means “spring,” straight to the point.

7. Azalea

Another less often seen floral name for a girl.

8. Birdie

The birds in spring are warbling in their full glory, which makes this adorable name perfect for a springtime babe.

9. Bloom

In the same vein as the name “Blossom,” but I’m a bit more partial to Bloom as it feels a little more fresh than Blossom.

10. Blossom

Spring is a time when all lovely things are blossoming, so this name is just right.

11. Bluebell

A very sweet name for a little lady – may be a bit too cutesy for a first name, but would be great as a middle name.

12. Bradwell

While the name Brad may be passe at the moment, the name Bradwell feels fresh and new. It is English and means “from the broad spring.”

13. Brooke

Babbling brooks just make me think of spring, but I like the spelling with an added “e” much better. I think this name, while often considered to be a “girl’s name” is actually a lot more unexpected and unique as a boy’s name.

14. Claire

Claire is a feminine, but not overly frilly, French name meaning “bright and clear” which I think has an appropriate spring feel to it.

15. Dahlia

Many of the flower names often used are “cute,” but this name has a bit more sophistication to it which means it would grow with a child more easily.

16. Daisy

Such a cute name for a little girl.

17. Dawn

Dawn signifies a new beginning, a new day and the sentiment is perfect for spring.

18. Denver

Yes, this is the name of a place, but it also means “green valley.” I think this would be a more unique alternative than some of the other place names that people lean towards (i.e. Paris, London, etc…).

19. Florence

A Latin name which means “blooming” – such a sweet name and meaning.

20. Fontanne

I’m absolutely smitten with this French name that means “fountain or spring.” It makes me wish I was having a spring baby to name!

21. Iris

I’m a sucker for the flower names…what can I say?

22. Keby

Gaelic for “place by the fountain or spring” and a truly unique name for a boy or a girl.

23. Laverna

This French name means “born in the spring” – all you parents with spring due dates may want to keep this one in mind.

24. Leif

The leaves are blooming in spring, which makes this name work, although I prefer the Scandinavian spelling of “Leif” instead of “Leaf.”  A wonderful strong name for a little boy.

25. Lily

An English flower name and a symbol of purity and innocence.

26. Magnolia

Quite simply the name of a flower, and a lovely one at that.

27. March

For a baby born in March this name would be quite fitting and I actually prefer it as a middle name, but it would work well for either.

28. Margeurite

This name is a type of daisy and actually mean “daisy.” Ever so perfectly spring. I wanted to use this as a middle name for our daughter, but my husband wouldn’t go for it. If you’re looking for a three-syllable girl’s name, this one could be a winner.

29. Mae

While you could go with the spelling “May” for the obvious reason that is one of the spring months, when it is spelled “Mae” it is a French name meaning “goddess of spring growth.”

30. Maxwell

This Scottish name meaning “Magnus’ spring” is a great option for a unique name that isn’t altogether obscure.

31. Peony

One of my most favorite flowers, so I may be a bit partial, but I think this name is quite perfect. It was on my list of favorites when I was pregnant.

32. Petunia

One of the lesser used flower names, could be a a lovely name for a little lady.

33. Poppy

A lovely and cheerful flower as well as a cute baby name.

34. Primrose

A more unique option than Rose with a feminine feel. This name has gained some popularity ever since the book/movie The Hunger Games came out – Primrose was the name of one of the book’s characters.

35. Rain

You know what they say…”April showers bring May flowers!”

36. Robin

This name could be sweet for a boy or a girl, but I kind of prefer it as a boy’s name.

37. Rose

This is my middle name – a classic flower if you’re not looking to get too crazy.

38. Spring

The very epitome of a spring-inspired baby name obviously. My daughter was born in January and her middle name is Winter, so I happen to think Spring would be a lovely middle name for a baby born during the spring months.

39. Sunny

The sun finally shows its face in the spring which makes this name spot on. It has a happy, cheerful ring for a child with a happy, cheerful countenance.

40. Violet

A lovely, little, purple flower or a lovely, little girl’s name.
