September is a month that brings so many welcome changes. From the weather beginning to cool off in most places, to the beloved traditions like apple picking and sipping pumpkin spice lattes, there is no shortage of fun during the ninth month of the year. If you’re welcoming a September baby, you’ve got a lot to look forward to, like the scientific proof that your little one will likely succeed at school and steer clear of trouble as they get older.

While looking forward to the future is fun, the here and now of giving birth in September might have you focusing on a more immediate goal, like choosing a name that is reflective of your almost-Autumn baby.
