  • Cancer Baby Names

    Names for Cancer babies start with the Moon, the ruling celestial body for anyone born under the sign of the crab.

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.

Because surnames lie outside historical gender identifications, this is another fresh source of unisex baby names.
