New Year Baby Names
The ringing in of a new year brings with it a sense of fresh beginnings, a new dawn dawning, and bright hopes for the future. And so with that in mind, and with our warmest wishes to all of you for a great year, we offer some names drawn from a variety of cultures that suggest those very things–and all of them appropriate for a New Year’s baby.
NAMES THAT MEAN HOPE
NAMES THAT MEAN DAWN
NAMES THAT MEAN NEWNESS, FRESHNESS, BEGINNINGS
Another approach, if you’re naming a baby born in the first month of the year, would be to consider one of the diverse names used for the month of January across the world:
CAIT (in Hindi)
MAKARA (means born under Capricorn)

“Cait” the month is pronounced similarly to “Chite” in Hindi, so it doesn’t rhyme with Kate.

Cool list! If I were going to name a new year’s baby I’d pick Amaryllis Hope! I always loved the little girl in The Music Man!
