Cancer Baby Names

Cancer baby names.jpg?ixlib=rails 3.0

Names for Cancer babies start with the Moon, the ruling celestial body for anyone born under the sign of the crab. Any summer-related names would be fitting for a Cancer baby, as the Sun is in Cancer during June and July.

Names that mean water may also be right for a Cancer baby, as Cancer is one of the water signs of the zodiac. Names for a Cancer baby could also include those related to the number four, since Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac.

Famous Cancers like Frida Kahlo and Princess Diana make for suitable baby Cancer namesakes. For a baby born under the Cancer sign, these names are worth a thought.
