Aries Baby Names Catch Fire

Aries baby names

Aries baby names are as fiery, bold, and energetic as the people born under the sign of the ram.

The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is the brave and passionate leader of the signs. Powerful boy names and girl names connoting strength and courage would makes excellent names for Aries babies.

Symbols connected to Aries offer ample inspiration for Aries baby names. Aries is one of the three fire signs of the zodiac, so names that mean fire are ideal for an Aries son or daughter, as well as names that mean red, which is the color most strongly connected to Aries.

Aries names also connect to Spring baby names, as the start of the astrological calendar coincides with the beginning of Spring. Alternatively, you may wish to give your child the name of a notable Aries, whether in tribute to a modern celebrity or historical figure.

If you’re expecting a baby between March 21st and April 20th but need more name inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve put together the ultimate guide to naming your Aries baby.

Top Aries Baby Names

Fiery baby names are having a moment. Ember and Nova are two fast-rising girl names of recent years, and Phoenix has been steadily creeping up the charts for both sexes. Blaze and Cole also make the Top 1000, although each has taken a dip in popularity.

Red-hued names are another trendy subset of Aries names. Ruby, Scarlett, and Jasper — which is also one of the stones associated with Aries — are peak chic.

Aries itself makes the list of Top Aries baby names. Aside from Leo, it’s the most common zodiac sign name — it squeaked into the Top 1000 in 2018 at  number 947. The combination of astrological and mythological significance — Aries was the Roman god of war — makes Aries an appealing choice to modern, style-conscious parents.

Here, Aries baby names that make the US Top 1000:

April

Aries

Blaze

Chance

Cole

Elle

Ember

Fox

Genesis

Hadley

Jasper

Kaiser

Kennedy

Nova

Phoenix

Quinn

Rowan

Ruby

Scarlett

Aries Girl Names

Aries always begins around the vernal equinox — the official first day of Spring. We love seasonal names for babies born any time of the year, but Spring is an especially great time to name a daughter. Take your pick of floral names, but may we suggest Flora? The shockingly underused pan-floral name is a sister to the stylish Cora and Nora. Other Springy names include Persephone, the Greek goddess of Spring, and the botanical Clover.

Notable Aries women may provide inspiration for naming an Aries daughter. Feminist icon Gloria Steinem is an Aries, as is famed racecar driver Danica Patrick. Other Aries names that honor great women include Flannery (O’Connor), Billie (Holiday), and (Maya) Angelou.

Below, some of our favorite Aries baby names for girls:

Adara

Andromeda

Angelou

Anika

Antonella

Billie

Clover

Coral

Danica

Enya

Fallon

Flannery

Flora

Gloria

Merona

Persephone

Una

Valencia

Winona

Zora

Aries Boy Names

As the first sign of the modern astrological calendar, babies born under Aries would be well-suited to a name that reflects beginnings or leadership. There are a number of good choices for boys, including Issey and Odion, which refer to first-born sons, Primo, the Italian word for “first,” Asier, a Basque name meaning “the beginning,” and Llewellyn, a Welsh name meaning “leader’s image.”

The are many prominent Aries men with distinctive names to consider. Iconic singer Elton John was born during Aries season, as was acclaimed actor Marlon Brando and Renaissance painter Raphael.

Here, twenty of the best Aries names for boys:

Arun

Ash

Asier

Brando

Callahan

Elton

Fintan

Guy

Ignatius

Irwin

Issey

Leopold

Lou

Llewellyn

Odion

Porter

Primo

Raphael

Rogan

Russell

 Unique Aries Names

Aries season begins in late March and ends in April, and the months themselves offer a wealth of baby name possibilities. Mars, the name Roman war god whom March was named after, is currently one of the hottest planetary names of the moment, second only to Jupiter. Easter, which always falls while the sun is in Aries, is a truly unique possibility for a daughter, as fewer than five baby girls were given the name in 2018.

Jubal is an intriguing possibility for a son, as it connects to the ram, the symbol of Aries. Jubal means “ram’s horn” and is featured prominently in the Bible. Jubilee is the more commonly used feminine variation of the name that is rising in use.

We strongly endorse the name Olwen, who was a princess from Arthurian legend associated with Spring. Tennessee, with its Southern romance, feels infinitely more usable thanks to Reese Witherspoon, who gave it to her son in 2012. It’s a fantastic Aries honor name, after playwright Tennessee Williams. And Fiammetta is a badass princess name that connects to the fiery qualities of Aries.

Unique Aries baby names were given to fewer than 100 babies in 2018. Below, a selection of our favorites:

Anala

Aphrodite

Azar

Beeja

Cerise

Crimson

Easter

Endellion

Fiammetta

Jubal

Mars

Moxie

Olwen

Primrose

Sojourner

Spirit

Spring

Tennessee

Tuesday

Vepsa
