Aquarius Baby Names

Aquarius, the water bearer, is the eleventh sign of the western zodiac and a distant constellation in the night sky. People born between late January and late February are given this sign, one of three represented by the element air. They are said to be intelligent, generous, unconventional, and independent individuals. Here are some amazing Aquarius baby names.

Cordelia — Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, named for the Greek sky god. While Uranus may not make an ideal name choice, his Roman counterpart Caelus, or Caelum, is much more baby-friendly. Related are CordeliaFranciscoTitaniaOberonProspero, and Ariel — some of the planet’s many Shakespeare-inspired moons.

Eleven — Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac. Similar to Seven — a recent celebrity choice – Eleven makes an interesting option for daring baby namers. The popularity of the character Eleven on Stranger Things gives this name even more pop culture credibility. For a foreign twist, consider Swedish, Chichewa, and Italian translations ElvaLeveni, and Undici.

Felix — Sadalmelik and its brother Sadalsuud are the brightest stars of Aquarius. These Arabic names mean “luck of the king” and “luckiest of the lucky.” They would make interesting middle names — and Lucky is clearly suitable for an Aquarius born pet. FelixFelicityChance, and Asher are also fortunate names.

Forest — In China, the constellation Aquarius is known as Yulin after a historical unit of the Imperial Guard. Call your baby Forest — or Forrest — for a more western feel: Yulin translates to “feathered forest.” Babylon knew the star formation as Ea after their god of creation and water.

Ophelia — Aquarians are humanitarians — generous, compassionate helpers. GwenaëlKarim, and Charity are benevolent baby names. Avneet, Cody, Ezra, and Ophelia all mean “help” or “helpful.”

Lincoln — Looking to the season and months themselves, JanusJanuaryRua, and Winter could be given to a baby born from January 20th to February 18th. You might also draw inspiration from famous Aquarians. Bob MarleyEllen DeGeneres, Jackson Pollock, and Abraham Lincoln were all born under the water bearer sign.

Minerva — Aquarians are among the intellectuals of the zodiac. Minerva, the Roman goddess of wisdom, is a natural selection for an Aquarius child. Other characters representing intelligence include goddesses Athena and Phoebe, and historic inventor ArchimedesHugo means “intellect,” and CatoKaviSophie, and the Persian Dana all mean “wisdom” or “wise.”

Tempest — Tempest is a strong windstorm — perfect for a child with an air sign. Ciel and Sora mean “sky,” as does Hawai’ian Lani — “sky, heavens” — and its elaborations Kalani and Noelani — “heavenly mist.” The literal translation of the musical Italian Aria is “air.” Milder wind picks include BreezeZephyr and Gale.

Violet — The precious purple Amethyst is the gemstone of the water bearer; Amy is a sweet short form. If those are not to your taste, a different purple name could give a subtle nod to Aquarius. Try VioletPlum, or Indigo on for size.
