Names That Say Blue

October 3, 2013 Pamela Redmond

Capping off our boy-themed week in celebration of our new book The Nameberry Guide to the Best Baby Names for Boys, we turn our attention today to the color blue.  Besides being the classic symbol of boys, blue is the color of the sky and water, of birds and flowers, of jewels and baby blue eyes.  And blue, in all its splendid variations, is a wonderful image and meaning for a child’s name.  Here, 15 great choices that relate to the color blue.

Azure is a highly unusual color name drawn from the medieval French word for lapis lazuli, a deep blue stone valued for its intense color. Lapis was ground into pigments used by the world’s greatest artists, from Vermeer to Titian, and was also used for the eyebrows of the mask of King Tut.
