The Scorpio Namer

The naming process is very emotional for you, Scorpio. It’s something you take very seriously, and you put a lot of thought and energy into choosing the right name. You do all the research to find names that meet your requirements, and will not let up until The Name is settled.

But this conversation is under lock and key. You will only discuss names with your partner, and nobody else — not even family — will know the name until the baby is born. To you, the ultimate betrayal would be for someone to steal your carefully chosen, ultra-unique baby name, so the utmost caution will be taken to ensure that it stays under wraps.

Scorpio, you take control of the naming process, which can cause friction when naming with a partner. You will get into an argument about names, if that’s what it takes to get your way. And you likely will get your way, since you don’t back down about any subject, let alone one as important as your child’s name.

You have a strong desire to be loyal to your own family and connections, which may lead to tension. Remember that if you are naming your child with a partner, there are two sides of the family that need to be represented. You are likely to come up with a creative solution — perhaps there’s a name that can subtly honor two grandparents.

It’s easy to take things personally when naming with a partner. You may interpret their baby name vetoes as a rejection of you, especially if you haven’t spoken up about your feelings in the baby name process.

Beware of your impulse to manipulate your partner behind the scenes in an attempt to get them to come around to your favorite names. An open and honest conversation about your values in a name will get you further.

Scorpio Name Style

Scorpio, you love a name that gets a reaction. Whether it’s adoration, astonishment, or abhorrence doesn’t really matter, as long as your baby’s name brings the drama and pegs you as a cool, edgy parent. It’s all about aesthetics, vibes, and mood.

That means popular names are out of the question for you, Scorpio. You want your child to have a rare name that makes a statement and sets them apart from the crowd. You’re drawn to names with history to them, and may be among the first to revive a forgotten name or reimagine ancient names for modern use. You like bold, dramatic sounds, and may be attracted to names with spiky consonants such as X, Z, and V.

Scorpio, you like names that have a personal connection, but the association should be subtle. Rather than honoring someone by putting their actual name on the birth certificate — how obvious! — you are more likely to make an allusion to the honoree. Perhaps your child was named after your grandmother’s favorite color or a character from your favorite novel.

This can also be reflected through name meaning. The meaning of your child’s name may hold a hidden message that reflects your hopes and dreams for them or a secret and meaningful tie to you and your partner.

More than any other sign, you understand that you are naming a future adult, not a baby. Scorpio, you don’t mess around with cutesy names or childish nicknames — this child needs a grown-up name that will serve them for their entire life.

Names a Scorpio Might Like

Rare, striking, and rooted names like Odette and Laszlo tend to draw you in, Scorpio. Even better if they have a dark side, such as Ophelia and Azriel.
