From SheKnows Canada
We take a lot of care and put a lot of thought into the name we give our baby. Many of us use things we love to inspire the name we choose, and when it comes to spring, here are some fun names inspired by the season.

Boys' names



If you're looking for a name for your son that has a connection to the earth and an air of strength to it, this is a great choice. If you're a lover of nature and hope your boy will be in touch with the world as well, Barley can be the perfect fit.



If you're a free spirit or hope your new little boy will be one, this name is perfect. Much like the leaves just starting to appear, your sweet baby is just getting started, and in no time he'll be as vibrant (and big) as a full tree. Leaves are one of a kind, and your beautiful boy will be one of a kind too with this name.



Peaceful, tranquil and life-giving are all words you would use to describe a body of water. They're also great qualities of people and perfect for reflecting in the name of your baby. The name River could have these qualities rub off on him. Cross your fingers for a peaceful and tranquil baby that will let you get some sleep!



If you're looking for a strong Hebrew name with a tie to springtime for your new baby boy, Aviv could be a good choice, because it literally means "springtime." If you hope your child will grow up to have leadership qualities, compassion and to be a bit romantic, the name Aviv is for him.



Derived from the name Woodrow, Woody can be an official name on its own or just a nickname. It was made popular by the movie Toy Story, and perhaps your child will grow up to have the qualities that made that character so lovable: leadership, friendliness and fun-loving.

Girls' names



If you consider yourself a spiritual, imaginative and idealistic person or hope your new baby girl will be, this is a great name choice for her. April is a name that's both girlie and that commands attention, so there's no telling what your baby girl will grow up to be like.



If you're looking for a unique name that also sounds strong, beautiful and can lend itself to many personalities, this could be the one for your daughter. It hasn't been on any popular name lists yet, so you're bound to have the only Rain in your group of friends.



If you want your daughter to be well loved, popular and happy, Daisy could be the name for her. Daisies are one of the most popular flowers known for their beauty and fragrance, so a daughter with this name will no doubt leave a sweet mark on the world.



If you're a fan of the TV show Once Upon a Time, then you're familiar with the character Cora, also known as the Queen of Hearts. There is no doubt that your daughter will be the queen of your heart and, bearing this name, will melt the hearts of many others.



If you love nature, the stars and the sun and are someone who stops to look at the changing colours of the sky, have you thought about that as a name for your girl? It's a unique and special name that will leave a mark on the world, no doubt. The sky can be seen from outer space, and if you're anticipating your daughter will have a big personality, this name will definitely fit.
