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.

Adara is lovely! And current trends notwithstanding, Aidan is still a great name. Maybe not so useable, but a great name.

I love these names! I will definitely use these someday, even if my kid is not born in December. These are my favorite girls: Seraphina, Adara, Camilla, Eleanor, Fiametta, Iris, Ruby, and Violet. For boys, Abraham, Archer, Evander, Idris, and Lincoln. From the unisex list, I love all the names, but especially Ember, Artemis, Nuri, and Phoenix.
Great post, by the way! It must have taken you a long time to come up with all those names. It was worth it, though! 🙂

I am a Sagittarius and even though I’m not into astrological stuff, I must admit those traits fit me perfectly.
As for the names, I love so many. Stand outs are Plum, Robin, and Ruby.

Ione, Lavender, Plum, Theodosia & Evander! I think I need to try for a Sag baby next time. These names are lovely!!

Eldrid is lovely.

Love Adara and Archer! They’d make great names for twins. I also like Sage, Ruby, Iris, Violet, and Eleanor. Thank you for the post!

Love Adara, Artemis, Iris, Violet, Verity, Abraham, Apollo and Evander
I have never heard the meaning ‘fire’ for Aine before, only splendour, radiance and brilliance

I was commenting to say that I really liked Ascella.
Then I found out it meant armpit. Also I figured the first syllable is ass which is a no-no. Nastasia nn Nasty from Highschool taught me a lesson for life.

I’m not really into horoscope but I love zodiac theme. Water names for Aquarius, moon names for Cancer.. Archer for Sagittarius.. I think it’s cute. 🙂
My personal favourites for a Sagitta:
Also Artemis, though I personally favour it for a cancerian. 🙂

I’m intrigued by Aine. I’ve never seen it spelled this way but I think it’s pretty. I’ve always liked Maia but a friend of mine has a Maya and my an uncle’s grandson named his one of his twin girls Mya (the other, I’m not kidding, was Nya… Why would they do that?!)
I also absolutely adore Mercy and Verity. I used them for a short story I was writing because I thought they sounded like names nobody would use, now it seems like I’m seeing them on all kinds of these blog list things. I don’t know how I feel about that because I’ve fallen in love with them.
I’m still on the fence with Seraphina. Sometimes I like it and it’s potential nicknames and other times I think it’s too much of a name. Though, I’m one to talk since a name I’ve landed on for a hypothetical daughter is Georgianna (My mother’s name is Jeorjina, which is just Georgina with a J), but it is quite a mouthful of a name. 🙂
Also, since my brother is born in the sign of Sagittarius, the good traits of a Sagittarius, generosity and compassion don’t really apply to him, unless he’s in a very good mood. However, the foolishness, pride, and frankness do. He
