Because spring is a time of rebirth — &, you know, regular birth

Spring is a time of rebirth and, of course, regular-old birth. If you’re careening toward the latter this spring, you may be in the market for a fresh and floral or otherwise nature-inspired baby name. These adorable spring-inspired name picks are an updated alternative to many of the traditional top-100s. We’ve also rounded up more than a dozen bonus baby names with special springtime meanings.

Floral names

Floral names are a perfect choice for a spring baby, no? They also make great baby name group themes for twins or siblings.
