Autumn is a beautiful time of year, of reaping in a bountiful harvest. As the days and nights cool down, we all look forward to warm soups, fresh baked goods, fall sports, and the gorgeous, vibrant foliage.

If your baby is due in the autumn, have you considered fall baby names? These lovely, unique choices range from the traditional to the trendy.

In Nature

1. Autumn

One of the most beautiful fall baby names, which for some reason or other has gotten the rep of being a hippy classic. Pshh. Autumn replaced the word Harvest mid 16th Century and has quickly become more popular than Summer.

2. Amber

The gorgeous fossilized tree resin, found in jewelry. I chose it because of its availability in a vivid array of autumn-hued colors.

3. Aster

Of the Aster flower, which blooms in early fall.

4. Hawk (or Hawke)

A strong, unique name; every fall, hundreds of thousands.

5. Raven

A highly intelligent bird, revered as spiritual figure who forages on a rich assortment of insects, cereal grains, berries, fruit, small animals, and food waste. Harvest … bird-style.

6. Wheatley (or Wheatleigh)

“From the wheat meadow.” Falls into one of the more poetic and elegant fall baby names — making me think of baked goods, warm homemade bread, sugar and spice.
