Scorpio Baby Names Captivate and Inspire
Scorpio baby names are strong and magnetic, as are Scorpios themselves.
This year, children born from October 23rd to November 21st will have Scorpio as their sun sign. Scorpios often get a bad rap for their emotional intensity, but it’s the most passionate and loyal signs of the zodiac. Names such as Dillon (“loyal one”) or Zeal would work well for a Scorpio child.
Scorpio is the second of three water signs, so any of the names that mean water could be a great fit for your baby born under the sign of the scorpion. Additional Scorpio symbols that connect to potential baby names include chrysanthemums and azaleas, opal and topaz, snakes and eagles.

Top Scorpio Baby Names
Seasonal names are among the most common choices recommended for Scorpio babies. A Fall-themed name, such as Hazel, Scarlett, or Sage, would be apt for a baby born in late October or early November, as would Autumn itself. And for a daughter born at the start of Scorpio season, you may consider Eve for its subtle connection to Halloween, or All Hallows’ Eve.
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, making Octavia (meaning “eighth”) a lovely choice for a Scorpio daughter. After almost 20 years off the list, Octavia hopped back onto the Top 1000 in 2017 and currently ranks at Number 371.
Names for Scorpio girls may be inspired by the gem and floral symbols associated with the sign. If you love bold flower names, Chrysanthemum is an elaborate but stunning option. Slightly subtler is Azalea, another name for the rhododendron, also connected to Scorpio.
Opal and Topaz are the name-worthy gems representing October and November, the months during which the Sun is in Scorpio. The month names themselves can also be Scorpio girl names — each were given to more than 35 baby girls in 2019.
Among the famous Libra women with notable names are two young actresses, Kiernan Shipka and Amandla Stenberg. Amandla is a Zulu and Xhosa name meaning, “power” — an appropriate meaning for a Scorpio girl. Other Scorpio namesakes include physicist Marie Curie and Indira Gandhi, the first female Prime Minister of India.

Spanish artist Pablo Picasso was a Scorpio, as was Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a leader of the women’s rights movement. Her surname would be an excellent feminist choice for a Scorpio son. Musician Frank Ocean is a contemporary Scorpio namesake — Ocean’s water connection makes it especially appropriate for a baby Scorpio.
