30 Summer-Loving Names to Give Your Baby


baby at beachAre you pregnant and about to give birth this summer? No? Doesn't matter. You may at some point be asked to name a baby this season and you need to be prepared.

That said, summer is our favorite time of the year and we like to celebrate it in every way possible. That includes trips to the beach, working from roof decks, and naming babies after summertime goodness.

Have you met a "June" you haven't liked? Didn't think so. You see, everyone loves summer, and everyone loves being reminded about summer, so everyone loves people whose names remind them of summer. It's just that simple. To help make the world a happier place, we've come up with 15 boys names and 15 girls names that fit the summertime theme.


  1. May or June
  2. Margarita
  3. Summer (duh)
  4. Rose or Iris or Daisy
  5. River or Sea or Sky or Rain or Ocean or ... Hazy Hot & Humid
  6. Vacation
  7. Memorial or Labor
  8. Sandy (get it?)
  9. Bikini
  10. Lemonade
  11. Minnie (Golf)
  12. Coral
  13. Sunny
  14. Bay
  15. Cheeseburger

Obviously, some of these are jokes, or names only Gwyneth Paltrow would consider (Apple and Moses could use another sibling!), but some of them are real summertime names we love.

Which ones do you like?

My son is named Julius after his great grandfather. I do sometimes call him orange Julius, though, because he has red hair. :)

Meghan Roark

I like lobster the best!

I think I may change my daughter's name to Cheeseburger.  I think it is a beautiful name.

Miller is kind of a cool, funky boys name... lol.... Summer is okay, I have known two Summer's.... my daughters name reminds me of summertime but it's not one of these... Delaney Savanah. Not sure why.

For the girls I would go with: Summer or Hazy. I love the name Sunny but that is my DS's nickname lol.

The name June always makes me think of June Cleaver ~ lol. My daughter is growing Sunflowers in her garden this year and thinking about it Sunflower is a pretty cute girl's name!

Bikini? Lobster? Seriously? My son gets made fun of in school because his last name is Duncan. Please mom's don't pick a name that you can't see yourself having as an adult later on.
