Warm weather

After cold winters and rainy springs, we welcome the sun and heat of summer with joy.. and with baby names like Summer, Sunshine and, for a boy, Sonny. Or consider a name like Teresa, which means "late summer," or Somerset, which means "summer settlement."

Summer months

Naming a child after the month in which he or she is born is a long-standing practice. Try the classic June for a girl and July (Julius, Julian) or August (Augustus) for a boy. Or follow the celebs' lead, and pay tribute to the seventh month with the first or middle name Seven.

Independence Day

The Fourth of July is considered by many as the official start of summer. Patriotic names are the perfect way to pay tribute to the nation's birthday. Honor George and Martha Washington, Paul Revere and Betsy Ross. Or mark the occasion with a meaningful name such as Freedom, Justice or Liberty.
