August babies bookend the summer, heralding a last breath of sheer joy before back to school craziness and the arrival of fall. It’s a sweet, sunset season, made better when a new baby is in the picture. August comes from the Latin word augustus, meaning “consecrated” or “venerable.” That’s a lot of weight for a wee little baby to carry, but if it rings true for you, then you can go right ahead and name your newborn August.
If you want another name that evokes the very best of the month of August, that speaks to those gorgeous hot afternoons, vacations and play, relaxation and time together, an abundance of fresh veggies and fruit, and beautiful blooms, these are the names for you. Using the season and all of its fun as a jumping off point, you can find loads of August-appropriate names. Or, another hot tip, look into other influential August babies. Like, did you know Julia Child and Lucille Ball were born in August? True statement. How about a baby Jules or Lucy after these two fierce females.
These names each have some symbolic connection to the month of August and proves that being born in the late-bloomer season is actually quite a boon.
Now you can start rolling these names off your tongue and see what feels right. But don’t take too long. August always seems to fly by and your baby will be here before you know it.
