Gemini season is officially here from May 21 to June 20! The fifth zodiac sign of the calendar year (Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, and Taurus, being the first four sign), Geminis are sweet and compassionate, social butterflies, and known for throwing themselves into new experiences. An air sign, those born during this time make great companions (their sign is the twin) and like to live life with an adventurous spirit.

Sometimes, Geminis can get a bad rep for being "needy" or always seeking company. While this is true, just know they are gentle, affectionate beings, so quality time is one of their main love languages.

Below, you can find our long list of Gemini-inspired baby names.

Names inspired by Gemini traits

Geminis are the social butterflies of the group–consider these names that embody gentleness and friendship: Ruth, Winnie, Raya, Buddy and Jebediah.

It only seems appropriate that along with friendliness, Geminis are known for being extremely compassionate. Cordelia, Mabel, Lev, David, and Priya are all a nod to love and compassion. Love what you see? We have more of these here.

If you're looking for a more traditional or vintage name, May and June fit perfectly, obviously.


A dual-color zodiac sign (light green and yellow), Gemini offers tons of possibilities when it comes to brainstorming color-inspired names. The first is light green, which can be resembled in names like Hunter, Olive, Meadow, Silas, Jade, Fern and Forest.

Yellow is also a Gemini color. Sunny, Goldie, Daisy, Orla and Xanth are a few girl name options. For your baby boy, how about Sol, Paz, Boyd or Bowie?
