10 Autumn and Harvest Inspired Baby Names

10 Autumn and Harvest Inspired Baby NamesThe leaves are changing color and falling off the trees. It’s a gorgeous array of colors, from red to orange to bright yellows and dull browns. I am a big fan of this season. The cooler temperatures just make me happy and sweater season is awesome!

I am not even pregnant yet, but we are big fans of names with meaning and some sort of story behind it. We’re already brainstorming some names to give our baby when the time comes to meet him/her and we’re always on the hunt for fun, creative names. Like I said, I am a big fan of the fall-season and so I have been looking at names for both boys and girls that make me think of autumn.

Some names are literal interpretations of the season and other names may have a different meaning, but they remind me of this time of year.
