Names That Are Perfect For Scorpio Babies

Scorpios have a reputation for being, well, difficult. But, if you're having a baby between the dates of October 23rd and November 21st, you should know that there's a lot more to a Scorpio than just their negative attributes. According to Cosmopolitan, Scorpios are passionate and extremely loyal. They are also very confident, which will help your child throughout their pre-teen and teenage years. As kids, they will be the ones constantly asking "why?" but that curious nature is a great characteristic for their future.

On the other hand, Scorpios can alsobe calculating and have a need to control their surroundings (per Allure). But don't worry about these negative traits — Scorpios are often very misunderstood, and their positives can outweigh any negative. If you are having a Scorpio baby, these names are perfect for your little one.

Scorpio names for your baby boy

With this zodiac sign falling right in the middle of autumn, choosing a fall-focused name is a great choice for your Scorpio baby. Consider Leif, for the way it sounds like Leaf, or its actual meaning, "heir," which is very fitting for your next generation (via Romper). Birch is another great option, as a birch tree is one of those beautiful trees that turn bright yellow in the fall. It means "bright and shining," which is pretty perfect for a brand-new baby boy.

Scorpio names for your baby girl

Your Scorpio is sure to be a force to be reckoned with. Their passion and problem-solving skills are sure to take them far in life (via Cosmopolitan), but according to Romper, the water sign is also super sweet. Find a name that fits both by choosing a red-focused name (the color of the Scorpio zodiac) like Ruby, which directly means "red" or Poppy, a red flower. Other adorable options are Opal, the gemstone for October babies, or Autumn, the season your baby will be born in.

If you like the floral theme, a few flowers associated with a Scorpio are Heather flowers or Hollys, both great names for girls (per Flora Queen). Marigold, a flower that blooms in the fall, is also a beautiful name for your little one (via Romper).

Unisex names for your Scorpio baby

Unisex name options are ideal for any baby and can be a great place to start when it comes to searching for the best baby name.
