14 Baby Names Inspired By the 4th of July 1 of 14
Looking for the perfect baby name? Check out these 14 names inspired by the 4th of July!
Belle 2 of 14
If you're looking for a gorgeous baby girl's name that has many meanings, Belle is for you. It not only means "beauty," but it's also inspired by the Liberty Bell. It's a good choice if you want something classic and not too unique.
According to Baby Center, Belle is not that common. About 377 babies were named Belle in 2012.
John 3 of 14
A strong, classic name that also has a lot of 4th of July influence. John is a common President's name and Baby Center has it ranked at #28 in the United States for 2012. It's a name that will never go out of style.
Reagan 4 of 14
A unisex name that can be used for a boy or a girl and inspired by a past US president. It's classic enough so that people will remember it, but not so common that your child will be sharing their name with a classmate.
Abraham 5 of 14
Inspired by a famous U.S President and a great name choice for a boy (or girl if you're into the classic male names for girls). Abraham has been a popular name choice for a long time. In the United States in 2012, Abraham was listed at #194 in 2012 according to Baby Center.
Hope 6 of 14
A sweet and simple name with a large meaning. It's perfect for a little girl. Hope is inspiring and maybe your little girl will grow up to inspire America and even the world.
Theodore 7 of 14
Theodore, maybe "Teddy" for short, is also a name inspired by a past U.S President and the perfect choice for some 4th of July energy.
According to Baby Center, Theodore was ranked in the United States at spot number 197 in 2012.
Banner 8 of 14
If you're looking for a quirkier name, Banner is a great choice. It can be very fitting for a boy or a girl and it's totally inspired by the "Star Spangled Banner." It's not high on any name-ranking list, but it certainly won't get your child's name on any "worst baby name" list either. It's strong, pretty, and unique... just like your future baby.
July 9 of 14
A calendar-inspired name and one that's perfect for the 4th of July. It's a name that can be attributed to either a boy or a girl. It's not totally out-there to name your baby after a month and I happen to think July is one of the prettiest names on the calendar.
Justice 10 of 14
There's no doubt that giving your baby the name Justice would have some strength behind it. Totally perfect for the 4th of July and a strong name for a girl, which I happen to love. According to Baby Center, in 2012 Justice ranked at spot #518 in the United States.
Freedom 11 of 14
What better name inspired by the 4th of July celebrations than Freedom? It's a name that will certainly set your child up for a great future. Baby Center has the name Freedom slowly dropping in popularity ,but there's no reason you can't bring it back.
America 12 of 14
Before the actress America Ferrera of Ugly Betty fame, you may have thought naming your child America was unheard of. It's the perfect name to celebrate your patriotism and your love for the 4th of July. In 2012 in the United States, America ranked in at #904 according to Baby Center.
Star 13 of 14
The Star Spangled Banner has a lot of heart behind it and naming your baby girl Star can demonstrate your love for the United States. It's a pretty, girly name that can fit so many personalities and it's popularity has been relatively steady since the late 90's according to Baby Center.
Liberty 14 of 14
Being free is a wonderful right, so liberty has a great meaning everyday and especially on the 4th of July. It also happens to make a gorgeous baby girl's name and it can definitely be inspired by the holiday celebrations. According to the data collected by Baby Center, Liberty can be a good choice for boy or girl and for girls it's ranked at #600 in the United States.
