August Baby Names

Babies born in August might have names related to August’s birthstones, peridot and onyx, or names linked August’s birth flowers, the poppy and gladiola. The name August itself is quite fashionable right now, but less popular variants such as Augusta and Augustine would also be lovely on an August baby. Names for babies born in August can also include those which reference the zodiac signs of the month, Leo and Virgo. August is the last full month of summer, so names connected to warmth and sunshine are appropriate for an August baby. If you are expecting an August baby, add some of these names to your list.
