Pregnancy is an exciting time as you're planning everything for your newborn. One of the most important things is to choose the right name as your baby will be called that forever. Luckily, we can look to astrology to help us figure out the perfect name to choose for a girl or boy.
Each astrological sign has certain qualities, so it's best to pick a name that will suit those specific traits. For instance, fiery signs like Aries and Leo should have meaningful names, like Max (Aries) for a boy and Summer (Leo) for a girl. Unusual names like Luna and Otis belong to the nurturing and strong star signs, such as Cancer. Star signs like Pisces are the dreamers, so names like Finn and Willow are ideal. On the other hand, names like Rose (Scorpio) and Micah (Aquarius) are more elegant but perfect for the emotional signs.
