If you are searching for a baby name inspired by nature, perhaps these weather-related names are the perfect fit. There are a few names you might want to cross off your list because of hurricanes and other weather events, such as Sandy, Katrina and Irene, however there are plenty of unique and fun baby girl names and baby boy names to consider.

Cold weather baby names

Let’s start with great cold weather baby names for boys and girls — starting with the name January. This wintery month makes a great baby girl name, such as actress January Jones. December would make a more unique choice as a cold weather baby name. You can also consider cold weather holidays, such as the name Christmas.

More cold weather baby names include:

  • Neve (Italian for “snow”)
  • Neige (“snow” in French)
  • Frio (“cold” in Spanish)
  • Blanca
  • Jack (as in Jack Frost)

If some of these cold weather names seem a bit too unique, consider using them as a middle name, as did Nicole Richie when she named her daughter Harlow Winter Kate.
