The Capricorn Namer

You don’t underestimate the huge responsibility of naming a baby, Capricorn. This is your first gift to your child, and it’s very important to you that your chosen name serves them well throughout their lifetime.

You approach the search for a baby name like any other important task: thoroughly, methodically, and intentionally. You’re not going to wait around passively for inspiration to strike! No — you’ll want that name locked down early, and you’re willing to put in as much time and effort as it takes to get there.

Capricorn, your natural leadership skills see you driving the naming process forward. But if naming with a partner, remember that taking charge does not mean taking all control. Listening to and respecting your partner’s wishes early on will pay dividends in the long run. For you, the ultimate frustration would be last-minute cold feet on your carefully chosen name!

Image is important to you, Capricorn, but you’re a resister — rather than a follower — of trends. Far more than popularity or fashion, you’re concerned with how a name is perceived. You’ll be keen to gather feedback on your top choices, but if naming with a partner, make sure you have their consent to share. 

Your pragmatic mindset is an asset, but also a potential source of friction if your partner has a more emotional, impulsive approach to naming. Establishing clear ground rules around questions like honoring family, cultural representation, and when and how to reveal your baby’s name will help to keep things moving in a productive direction.

Recognize that despite your best efforts, you won’t always agree! Resist the impulse to dig in your heels over a favorite name. Your impressive determination is better spent searching for a solution that suits both parties.

Capricorn Name Style

Capricorn, your preferred names are solid and traditional, and not overly stylized. Rather than chasing after the next big thing — or desperately trying to avoid it — you’re more likely to look to your family tree or to the history books for eminent choices that have stood the test of time.

Your child’s name will be their first introduction to future educators, employers, investors, fellow world leaders… Seriously, you have big aspirations for this kid! And you’re looking for a name that will help them to achieve their goals — a name that projects a strong image and commands respect.

That means that cutesy nicknames or edgy word names are out of the question for you. Your child needs an established name with presence — but not so much presence that they can’t make it their own! Rather than cool or shock factor, you rely on strong, streamlined sounds and memorable full name flow to ensure that your child’s name stands out for all the right reasons.

Capricorn, you like to be in control. Your son will be Alexander in full, not Alex or Xan — unless you’ve selected one of those nicknames yourself. You might even decide to sidestep the issue entirely by choosing a name that doesn’t lend itself to any nicknames at all.

Names a Capricorn Might Like

Stately and long-established names like Miriam and Alexander typically appeal to you, Capricorn, along with crisp and tailored choices such as Noor and Miles.
