May Baby Names

Names for babies born in May might be related to the signs of the zodiac of the month, Taurus and Gemini. Names connected to May’s birthstone, emerald, also work, as do those related to the birth flowers, Lily of the Valley and Hawthorn. May baby names can also include occupational names, which are related to the Memorial Day holiday. Since April showers bring May flowers, any floral name is fitting for a May baby. Notable namesakes connected to May are also a possibility. You may want to add these names to your list if you are naming a baby in May.
