September signals a shift from the dog days of summer to cool autumn nights spent apple picking and coordinating school drop-offs. What many may not realize is that September is heavily associated with the color blue, given that the birthstone for September is the sapphire, and one of the three birth-month flowers is the forget-me-not. Parents of September babies have a palette of blue names to choose from, from the straightforward but bold Blue to less obvious choices like Livia.
Several historical events have occurred during Septembers past, including the births of famous writers, musicians, and athletes. Here are a number of interesting September names that are sure to suit even the pickiest of parents.
Here, the comprehensive list of new babies born to celebs in the month of July. You’ll find Kelsey Grammer’s sixth child (named, surprisingly, Kelsey), a girl named Germany, the Game of Thrones character name Daenerys, a girl middle-named James for her star grandpa (James Caan), Nic Cage’s grandson, and Jimmy Kimmel’s choice of the sweet, plain Jane.
Do you prefer your girls’ names short and simple, or long and elaborate?
From just one syllable to seven or eight, this week’s high profile birth announcements proved that parents can choose a long, stylish name – or a short one that packs just as much punch.

I’ve always loved reading classic books. By the time I was twelve, I’d read a few Shakespearean plays, Pride & Prejudice, and Sense & Sensibility. Shakespeare was great of course; however, Jane Austen gave me even more. With her novels, I got the charming, delightful gentlemen I’d always dreamt of (and still do dream of!), the romance, the passion, and, a new range and style of names. After reading Pride & Prejudice (and falling in love with the thought of finding my own Mr. Darcy), I fell in love with the Georgian style of naming.
A time of great elegance, the Georgian era – named for the four British King Georges who ruled over it — lasted over 115 years, from 1714 to 1830. Along with Eliza Bennet and Mr. Darcy, the Georgian era often conjures images of powdered wigs and stately architecture. Many of the buildings and styles of the Georgian era are still extant today – including the Georgian taste in names.
