After all, baby names with great meanings make your child's title that much more special.

Girl names perfect for an Aquarius baby

One of the biggest Aquarius traits, per Cosmopolitan, is their originality. In fact, children born under this sign are often known as the most eccentric of their peers, so why not give them an original name to match? We love Zosia, meaning "wise thinker," and Shanti, which is a Sanskrit name meaning "quiet" or "tranquil" (via Scary Mommy).


Those under the Aquarius zodiac sign are also known for their compassionate spirit, and they often become great helpers. If you're hoping for a future humanitarian or just a toddler who helps you around the house, try giving them a name like Ophelia, which means "helper" in Greek, or Sacha, which means "helper of mankind" (via PopSugar).

Boy names perfect for an Aquarius baby

If you are having a boy and want to pay homage to the Aquarius helper spirit, consider a strong name like Salvador, which is Spanish for "savior of the world," or Arvin, which means "friend of the people" (via PopSugar). We also love the names Dax, which has become popular due to Dax Sheperd, and translates to "leader," and Conan, another celebrity name meaning "intelligent" (via Romper).


According to Cosmopolitan, Aquarius babies are extremely fair and kind, and we know your little boy will be, too. Names like Gareth, which means "gentle," and Simon, which means "listener" fit this characteristic and are sure to give your baby a calm entrance into the world (via PureWow). These are just a few of the most unique baby boy names.

If you are looking for a gender-neutral name for your Aquarius baby, you are in luck. There are so many zodiac-themed names that are perfect for a boy or a girl. Quinn is a popular name that has been attributed to both boys and girls, and with its meaning being "counsel," it fits the Aquarius characteristic of giving great advice (via Romper). Sage is another great option that means "wise." Plus, it makes a great middle name, too.
