First of all, congratulations on expecting a baby! Second of all, congrats on welcoming said baby in the fall, because you now have access to an amazing world of gorgeous autumnal baby names for babies of any gender. Hey, even just naming your little one Autumn (which literally means “born in the fall”) is a gorgeous way to celebrate their birth date.
If you want to go a different direction, month names are fun and unique. Of the fall months, October is most frequently used as a first name, but September and November make cool choices as well if you want something more distinctive. All three make for great middle names too.
