Patriotic baby names

With the approaching Fourth of July holiday, we thought it was the perfect time to round up our pick of patriotic baby names for girls and boys. From cool classic names from our presidents to All-American baby names that never go out of style, you are sure to find the perfect patriotic name for your July baby. In fact, if you are looking for a unique name, you will love our list of July 4th inspired names, such as Starr, Ruby and Roman.

Whether you are expecting a July baby, have friends or family members in the military or are just feeling the love for our great country, let us help you be inspired with our pick of patriotic baby names.

Presidential names

What could be more patriotic than the Presidents of the United States, who helped shape and create our great nation? There are a great mix of old-fashioned names, unique names and preppy names in this list of presidential baby names.

Fourth of July inspired baby names

We love the festive and fun July 4th holiday — and you may be surprised at all the names that can be inspired from Independence Day. One unique baby name choice that could be given to a boy or girl is the name July, or you can also consider the alternative options Jule or Jude.

What about the color of the holiday — red, white and blue? Thanks to Beyonce’s baby girl, Blue Ivy, and Alicia Silverstone’s son Bear Blu, this colorful “Blue” name has gotten a lot of publicity. If naming your child Red seems out of the question, consider Rose, Ruby or Redd. You probably don’t want to name your child “White,” however the Spanish translation is Blanco, which is a pretty baby girl name. For boys, the name Galvin is an Irish name that means “white.”

You can also consider naming your daughter Betsy, after Betsy Ross who is known for designing the first flag of the United States. The name Star (or the alternative spelling Starr) would also make a great name for your patriotic baby girl, as would the name America.

Wikipedia also lists the effects of fireworks, which happen to be great baby names!

Fireworks are a huge part of the July 4th holiday — so check out these cool and unique fireworks-inspired baby names:

  • Sparkle
  • Rocket
  • Pyro
  • Catherine (after Catherine Wheel firework)
  • Roman (after Roman candles)
  • Flare
  • Shine
  • Flower
