Red is the color of ladybugs, watermelon and fire trucks. It is an exciting color — it can represent rage; it can represent energy; or it can represent passion. It is an intense color. Would it be a good match for your baby?

Orange and yellow

Orange is the color of the setting sun, a favorite citrus fruit and marigolds. It is joyful and warm, and is an enthusiastic color that can invigorate you. And yellow is a bright and cheerful color — the color of our risen sun, lemons and many lovely flowers. Do any of these qualities sound right for your little one?


Green is an earthy color — the color of plants and trees, fabulous insects and parrots. It suggests healing, comfort and safety. Do you have an earthy baby?


Blue is the color of a clear summer sky and of its reflection on the sea. Blue reminds us of tranquility and calmness. Blue isn’t just for boys, either. Do any of these names sound perfect for your baby?


Purple is the color of violets and grapes and is a favorite color of children and adults alike. It is a traditional color of royalty and can symbolize power, luxury and nobility. Do you think a purple name would suit your baby?
