Pisces baby names take their main inspiration from water. This year, the cycle of the water sign Pisces falls from February 19th to March 20th. The final of twelve signs, Pisces is represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. Pisces people are known for compassion, creativity, and their dreamy personae. Pisces is one of the oldest signs of the zodiac and has heavy representation in both ancient and modern religions. Here are some perfect Pisces baby names.

Pisces Names for Girls

Galatea – Pisces is ruled by the planet Neptune, whose name is taken from the Roman god of the sea. Many of the planet’s moons are derived from Greek mythology and make interesting baby names. Triton is a merman god and the messenger of the sea. Also consider regal-sounding Galatea, a sea-nymph, and Thalassa, an ocean spirit known as the creator of fish.

Nerissa – Water names are perfect for a Pisces baby.  Nerissa and Marina both mean “from the sea.” Japanese names Kai “sea” and Nami, “wave” have a modern feel. Beck means “brook” and Naida is Greek for “water nymph.”

Nixie – Myths about the Greek gods Aphrodite and Eros feature the fish from the Pisces constellation. These divine names would make an interesting middle place reference to the star sign. Other names in oceanic myths are LlyrPan, Sequana, and Leviathan. Germanic water sprites are called Nixie and Greek stories feature sea nymphs named AsiaIanthe, and Clio.

Pearl – Both as the sign of the fish and a water sign, Pisces has strong ties to all things aquatic. Ocean names like CoralPearl, and Reed are natural choices. Other water words that double as names are BayLakeBrookRain, and River.

Teagan – Pisces people are said to be creative, empathetic, and romantic. For a name focusing on these traits, consider TeaganKavi, and Riordan, (“poet”), Adwin, (“creative”), Caoimhe and Kevin, (gentle, kind)”, Hanan, (compassion)”, and NoaCarysRen, and Rudo, (“love”).

Pisces Names for Boys

Adrian – Adrian Van Maanen and Charles Messier discovered pieces of the Pisces constellation; their names offer choices for lovers of astrology with a taste for classics. Similarly, Alf is a nod to Alpherg, one name for the constellation’s brightest star.

Finn –  Finn has double cred as a Pisces name; not only is it fish-related, but fin also is French for “finished,” referring to Pisces’ status as the 12th and last astrological sign.

Fisher – In tune with the symbol of Pisces, names connected to fish are the most straightforward way to honor this astrological sign. While not many names – the Sanskrit Mina being one of the few – mean fish, word name Fisher and foreign counterparts FischerFisk and Ryoshi are other options.

Mars – A large proportion of Pisces are born in March, a month named for the Roman god Mars. Several gemstones are associated with the sign, including the ocean-colored Aquamarine. The sea-green shade is also representative of Pisces; TurquoiseBondi, and Teal are other blue-green hues.

Pike – Pike is one of the many fish names that can be adapted for babies. Other types of fish that would work as names include Marlin, ZanderMollyMoraPollock, and Koi. Minnow makes a cute nickname for more serious names like Minerva or Wilhelmina. If you want something a bit fiercer, shark names Thresher and Mako fit that bill. From the Indonesian word arwana for “fish of paradise,” Arowana is full of trendy vowel sounds and nicknames like Ari and Arrow.
