Scorpio Names Captivate and Inspire

Scorpio Names Captivate and Inspire

Scorpio names are strong and magnetic, as are Scorpios themselves.

Children born from October 23 to November 21 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.

If you need a name for your Scorpio son or daughter, take a look at our comprehensive guide to names for Scorpio babies, below.

Top Scorpio 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. Popular names that mean water include Brooks, Talia, and River.

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 249.

Scorpio Girl Names

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 40 baby girls in 2022.

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.

Scorpio Boy Names

Naturally, the scorpion is the creature most commonly identified with Scorpio, but the sign is also represented by the eagle. There are many wonderful eagle-related names for boys, including the Germanic Adler and Arnold and the Greek Ezio.

The colors associated with moody and mysterious Scorpio are black and brown, which lead to baby names such as Bruno, Keir, and Doyle.

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 option among feminist names for a Scorpio son. Musician Frank Ocean is a contemporary Scorpio namesake — Ocean’s water connection makes it especially appropriate for a baby Scorpio.

Unique Scorpio Names

Along with the scorpion and the eagle (which are rare baby names in and of themselves), Scorpio is said to be represented by the snake and the phoenix. Unique names with related meanings include the feminine Vietnamese name Phuong, which means “phoenix” when pronounced FOON, and Viper, a snake-like take on Piper.

The day of the week associated with Scorpio is Tuesday, which was given to 13 baby girls last year. Another option to consider is Mardi, the French word for Tuesday, or Ebo, an Akeradini name meaning “born on Tuesday.”

Elidor, the Welsh variation of which means “steel,” is connected to the metal of Scorpio.

Unique Scorpio baby names were given to fewer than 25 babies in 2022. See our top picks below:
