13 Best Easter Baby Names

There’s a basketful of wonderful names available for an Eastertime baby, from the sacred to the silly, the Biblical to the bunnyesque. Here are a baker’s dozen of the best. By Linda Rosenkrantz


The lamb -- Agnus in Latin — is associated with Easter, with Jesus referred to as Agnus Dei, the lamb of God. One of the three most common English girls’ names for four centuries, the vintage Agnes is on its way back; it was chosen by Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany for their ittle girl. Equally appealing international versions: Agnella, Inez, and Nesta.
