You can find baby name inspiration for your little love bug anywhere, especially in nature. There are so many routes you can take, whether it's a name of a specific tree or flower or a name with a nature definition, like Kamala, for example, meaning "lotus" or "garden."

Seasons are often associated with nature, lending inspiration for names like Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn, or names representing the likes of seasonal nature like Bianca, Neva, and Eirwen which all mean "white" or "snow."

If you want to go with a month that reminds you of your favorite type of weather or nature activity then maybe you'll like the names April, May, June, or Augustin (variation of August).
