Names That Are Perfect For Aries Babies

Choosing a baby name may be one of the most daunting tasks new parents face. Knowing this name will stick with your child throughout their life can make choosing the perfect one harder than you think. To narrow down your options, it's a good idea to look at categories of names that fit your baby before you meet them. Look at names beginning with a certain letter, following a pattern, or even names fitting the baby's projected astrological sign.

If you're having a baby between March 21 and April 20, they'll be an Aries. This fire sign is often characterized as having a big personality, strong opinions, and a competitive spirit (via Cosmopolitan). Aries stand out because they're passionate and they make themselves known no matter where they are. So, what names fit this fiery sign? Whether you're having a boy or a girl, there are numerous options to choose from. You might even fall in love with a rare baby name you hadn't considered before!

Baby girl names perfect for an Aries

A big personality requires a strong name. When searching for a moniker for your little girl, consider a name with a great meaning. Audrey is a timeless name that means "noble strength," ringing true for these strong spirits (via PureWow). Fallon is another great option, as this name means "leader," which reflects the ambitious nature of Aries (per Scary Mommy). 

If this is your first child and you're planning to have more, an ideal big sister name is Avery, which translates to "wise counselor" (via PureWow). As natural-born leaders, this will fit your Aries baby perfectly! Other girl names we love for this zodiac sign are Scarlett, which means "red," and Sienna, which means "orange-red," both fire-centric colors for your fire sign baby (per Baby Names U.K.).

Baby boy names perfect for an Aries

Aries boys often grow up to be sports lovers with kind hearts — you can even find them volunteering during their spare time — and they also possess an adventurous nature (via Cosmopolitan). A baby boy this special deserves a solid name that will fit him through his adulthood. 

Thaddeus is a unique name meaning "courageous" in Greek, which is a prime characteristic of your soon-to-be baby boy (via PureWow).

Unisex names for an Aries baby

Choosing a unisex baby name is a hot trend that doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon! Giving your Aries baby a strong unisex name is a great option if you also fancy this trend. 

One name we love is Wyatt, which means "brave in war" (per Nameberry). While this name may lean toward the masculine side, its popularity as a female name is growing. According to Nameberry, after Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher named their little girl Wyatt, the name's popularity slowly increased, although it's still rare and unique. Other unisex options for your Aries baby include Everett, which means "strong" (per PureWow), and Ari, which means "lion of God" in Hebrew (via Nameberry).

Fire names for the Aries baby

Aries are often defined by their element: fire (via Astrology Zodiac Signs). This element plays into their personalities, which are fiery in themselves and often characterized by confidence, determination, and passion. If you really want to honor the Aries spirit, consider a name that represents fire. 

Some fire-focused names we love include Ruby, a popular name for girls that directly means "red" (per Nameberry), or Ember, a French name meaning "fire." Other great options with direct correlations to fire are Phoenix, Ash, and Garnet. If you want to be a bit more subtle about the fire-focused name, Aiden means "little and fiery" and is a great option for your little one (via Nameberry). Agni is a super unique name given to the Hindu God of fire, and it'll give your new bundle of joy the perfect amount of Aries flair.
