    The name January for a baby born in a different month?

    We are expecting our third daughter around November but a name we've always loved, even for our first two daughters, is January.

    The month has a lot of meaning to my husband and I, we get engaged in January and then married in January on the same day a few years later.

    What do you think? To weird for a baby girl born outside of January?

    Thanks for your opinions!

    If it's fine to use May, April and June outside of those months, I can't see why it would be The month obviously has sentimental meaning, and so does the name, so I'd use it

    Florence, Edith, Doris, Alice, Elsie, Lillian, Violet, Mabel, Ada, Evelyn
    Eva, Edna, Minnie, Martha, Amelia, Phoebe, Sylvia, Hazel, Agatha, Beatrice


    Matthew, Ernest, Louis, Christopher, Andrew, Albert, George, Joshua, James, Harry
    Freddie, Henry, Adam, Teddy, Daniel, Percy, Mark, Walter, Stanley, Liam

    I don't think it would be weird. Plenty of people are named August, May, June, Summer and Autumn without being born in those months/seasons.

    I'd think it's sweet that her name has special significance to you, even though it's not the month she was born. Go for it!

    I imagine she might encounter a couple of people who will say it's 'weird' to be named January if you were born outside of it, but generally I don't think it would be a problem. I like it when people use names that have a lot of personal meaning to them, it makes a beautiful name even more special.
