The dichotomy between the sun and the moon has been on my mind lately – two of the most ancient extremes, appearing in every culture’s history, and still a source of interest today. Why do we say someone who’s happy has a “sunny” disposition? Why do we say an idle person is “mooning” about? Why are these two celestial orbs so polarized? Though I won’t be answering any of these questions, I will be talking about names relating to the sun and the moon!
We can all agree that these symbols have different connotations. The sun brings to mind warmth, power, and positivity; the moon brings to mind serenity, coolness, and mystery. There are plenty of names, in and out of use, that tend to relate to the sun and moon directly. Let’s check them out!

Summer has just arrived, and with it, the celestial Crab. Cancer is the fifth sequential sign of the Zodiac and spans from June 21st to July 22nd. Crabs are sensitive, loyal homebodies and imaginative dreamers. They are ruled by the moon and the element of water. Blue-green, silver, and white are the sign’s colors, and rubies and pearls are its gems.

Rock stars are infamous for the wide range of names they give their kids, stretching from the ordinary (Harry, Henry, Josh, Jack) to the outrageous (My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way’s daughter Bandit, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz’s sons Bronx Mowgli and Saint Lazslo).
But there is one group whose members have successfully walked the line between the two extremes and come up with some great, imaginative, but user-friendly, names for their offspring, some of them quite ahead-of-their-time trendsetters.
With fewer than ten weeks left in 2014, let’s take a look back at the best of the high profile birth announcements so far.
But there have been some amazing celebrity baby names, stylish choices rich with meaning, unusual names that feel like they’d be wearable in Hollywood or anyone’s hometown.
I couldn’t keep the list to just nine total, so here are my nine favorite celebrity baby names for girls, and nine more for boys – subject, of course, to revision, any time between now and December 31st!
