During the holiday season, it’s customary to give thanks. What could you be more thankful for than your baby?
As you reflect upon the blessings in your life and the relationships you’re thankful for, consider expressing that gratitude through a baby name that means thankful. Though there are few baby names that literally mean thankful, you can also think outside the box to find names that express the sentiment creatively.
We’ve collected a list of baby names for Thanksgiving and beyond. Studies have shown that being thankful can actually boost your mood. Happier people are healthier people. Embrace joy and health as you not only search for a baby name, but consider all that you’re thankful for. While you search for the best baby name for your little one, take time to thank those in your life who support you. Whether it’s a hug for your spouse or a quick phone call to a friend, you’ll make someone’s day by expressing thankfulness. In turn, you’ll feel warm satisfaction.
Are you grateful for specific members of your family or your heritage? Consider a baby name that pays tribute to someone in your family. If you name your child after a living relative, it’s one of the most touching ways to thank that individual for being part of your life. Naming your baby with a baby name from your family tree shows how thankful you are for those who came before you.
Be creative as you consider baby names that express gratitude. You can name your baby after something you’re thankful for, such as a nature name like Sky or Summer. You can name your baby after a sentiment you associate with gratitude, such as Joy or Serenity. The best part of naming your baby is that you get to make the rules. Choose a name that truly resonates with you.
