Virgo Baby Names Are Pure
Virgo is one of the most common sun signs, but Virgo baby names span from popular and familiar choices to the truly unique and unusual.
This year, children born between August 23rd and September 22nd will have Virgo as their sun sign. Virgos are known for being practical and observant. They are extremely reliable and often perfectionists. This sober demeanor may be well-suited to a serious baby name, particularly one connected to multiple Virgo facets, such as Cora and Marion, George and Warren.
Virgo is an earth sign, so one of the many names that mean earth could be perfect for your Virgo son or daughter. The sign is symbolized by a maiden, a meaning connected to names that mean pure. Arwen, Agnes, and Zelda are among the many wonderful choices.

Virgo is the second of three earth signs, so names connected to the land are also worth exploring for a Virgo son. This could be in the form of a nature name or a name that means earth, such as Thelonious, Leland, or Kaj — pronounced like Kai.
