Baby names that mean "light" just seem perfect for a newborn boy or girl — because what baby isn't the epitome of light? They are pure, bright joy and deserve a brilliant name that will inspire their path in life.
We rounded up some names that are unique — but not all names that mean 'light' are unusual. Our list includes familiar classics like Abner, Lucy and Dawn. There's something for everyone here.
Whether you choose your baby’s name based on its meaning, or how it flows with a potential middle name or your last name, these are an excellent starting point. If you pick a more unusual first name, you might consider a classic middle name such as Anne or James, and vice-versa. Check your family tree for contenders, too.
