Sagittarius Baby Names Supersized

If you’re expecting a Sagittarius baby in 2019 — the sign officially starts on November 22 — you may be especially inspired to search among the gorgeous Sagittarius baby names for your little archer.

Sagittarius is especially strong in the heavens this year, with its ruler Jupiter spending its final beneficent days in the sign until December 2 and a new moon in Sagittarius beaming down fresh energy on November 26. Jupiter or the names of one of its moons might make an excellent super-Sag choice.

Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and is represented by a centaur drawing a bow.  Traits said to be shared by people born under the archer are generosity, honesty, and compassion as well as foolishness, pride, and frankness.  Sagittarians are ethical but impulsive, and have a love of excitement and adventure.  Though the turquoise is their main gemstone, they may also be represented the topaz, ruby, emerald, and sapphire

Other elements associated with this sign are the color purple, the narcissus, and the dandelion.  The archer is one of three fire signs along with Leo and Aries, so names that mean fire might also make good choices.

You might also look to literary and other heroes born under the sign of Sagittarius, who include Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, and statesman Winston Churchill.
