As anyone with a newborn on the way knows, the baby naming process is a rollercoaster of emotions, frustration (there are so many beautiful names to choose from!), and unexpected gems. Do you find vintage baby names elegant and timeless? Maybe you like the idea of passing a family member’s name down to your child. Whichever baby-naming route you go, you’ll definitely want a moniker that's warm, bubbly, and strong-willed—and that’s why we’re putting sun-inspired names on the table.
