Ahhh, babies! Babies are the most adorable, squishy little things in the world. There's something about those tiny toes, chubby cheeks and wispy hair that get us every time. Even if you're not planning on having a baby of your own anytime soon, it's always fun to think about it. What is your child going to look like? Will it be a boy or a girl? What adorable outfits will you dress them in? And, most importantly, what will you name your baby?
Baby names are tough. There are so many options! Seriously, any name in the world could be a possibility. You might spend your entire pregnancy just going crazy trying to pick a name. And the worst part is, you can only choose one. Out of all of the millions of choices, your baby can only have one name. Okay, maybe two or three if you add some middle names. But still, how do you choose?!
Turn to the zodiac, of course! Your baby's astrological sign can tell you a lot about their personality. And don't we all want a name that will fit our child's personality? It would be awful to encounter a doctor named Candy or an aspiring rapper named Herbert. Let's avoid that, shall we?
24 Aries Boy: Alexander or Hernando
Aries boys are all about the adventure. They're the type who will take their first step months before all of the other babies. And once they start walking, they won't be able to stop.
