Pisces, you're known for your imagination, spirituality, and romanticism, all of which you bring with you when naming a baby. Here, gain insight into your signature Pisces name style, approach to baby naming, and names you might like.
The Pisces Namer
Baby name inspiration comes from anywhere and everywhere for you, Pisces. A name heard on the street, in a book, or even in a dream may ultimately end up on the birth certificate. You don’t overthink it. If it’s right, it’s right.
Pisces, you don’t follow conventional baby name rules. You search for names on movie credits, dictionaries, and tombstones rather than family trees, names sites, or lists. You’ll happily give your child a name with a creative spelling or funky initials.
Before you find The One, your opinions on names may change often. You can be indecisive and fickle, so that cool new name you heard yesterday may feel totally off today.
When naming with a partner, you are sensitive and compassionate to their opinions. But you have a hard time saying no, so if you’re working with a more dominant partner, you may end up relenting to avoid hurting their feelings.
Your own feelings are likely to get hurt if your ideas are continually shot down by a partner or someone else. Although you may want to get others’ thoughts, beware of sharing your shortlist with friends and family, who may influence your opinions — for better or worse.
Ultimately, you rely on your intuition, Pisces, particularly with a decision as important as your child’s name. Your instinct may guide you to the perfect name ahead of time, but in all likelihood, you’ll need to meet your baby before you know you’ve made the right decision. You may have doubts even after the decision has been made, but if you chose based on your intuition, trust that the name will feel perfect in the end.
Pisces Name Style
Pisces, your creativity shines when it comes to baby names. You want your child’s name to feel special, and most importantly, well-suited to them — a unique individual!
You’re one of the most open-minded signs of the zodiac and are willing to embrace all types of names — modern or traditional, popular or rare, on- or off-trend — as long as it strikes the right chord with you.
However, you are drawn to names with certain features. Bohemian names — willowy and multisyllabic — appeal, as do names with a bouncy, playful spirit. You appreciate nicknames for this lively quality, along with their flexibility. You may do well to choose a nickname-rich name that allows your child to find the best fit for their personality.
A strong positive association is important to you, Pisces. This could be an inspirational meaning, spiritual connection, or ties to a loved one. You love names that feel emotionally significant. Inspiration may come from any manner of artistic sources, such as a favorite book, movie, song, or artist.
You may use a name directly from the source, but you’re also keen to put your own creative spin on it. This could mean modernizing a name that is too old-fashioned for your taste, using a traditionally masculine name for a daughter or a traditionally feminine name for a son, or honoring someone by giving your child a name with the same meaning. The sky’s the limit, Pisces.
Names a Pisces Might Like
Romantic, bohemian, and spiritual names — like Marigold and Orion — as well as those with wonderful rhythms, such as Reverie and Viggo, may enchant your creative Pisces soul.
