A year ago, I was getting ready for the birth of my third daughter.
Her due date was Valentine’s Day, but she decided she’d rather wait a few more days and was born on the 18th.
Of course, we thought about lots of love-related names as we prepared to name her, since we knew she’d be a February baby.
Here are some of my favorites if you’re thinking about names inspired by love too!
Amy – This French name means “dearly beloved.” If you want a more unique spin, consider going with the French spelling “Aimee” instead.
Adora – For that baby you adore, try this regal-sounding name with Latin roots!
Amara – This is a Greek name that means “lovely forever.” Can you imagine anything sweeter for your little girl?
Carys – It’s a Welsh name that means love (Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas used it for their baby daughter).
Court – Short for “Courtney,” you can also think of it as a fun spin on the old-fashioned term “courting” for your beloved baby.
Essie – This shortened and modernized version of the Biblical name “Esther” conjures up a woman who entreated her husband to save her people.
