What would you name a baby born in October?

What first names would you give a baby born in [name_u]October[/name_u]? List all the baby names related to [name_u]October[/name_u]!

The obvious choice would be [name_f]Octavia[/name_f]. Other names to consider;
[name_f]Autumn[/name_f] (depending on what part of the world you are in)
[name_f]Opal[/name_f] (the gem stone of October)
[name_f]Libra[/name_f] (star sign for those born up to the 22nd of October)
[name_f]Ottavia[/name_f] (similar to [name_f]Octavia[/name_f] but even rarer. Means 8)
[name_m]Tennyson[/name_m] (contains “ten”)

Here is a list I found of names that mean 10, since [name_u]October[/name_u] is the tenth month:

Another though I had was [name_f]Hallie[/name_f], a reference to Halloween. Perhaps [name_u]Harlow[/name_u] could also work.

I hope this helped.


That’s awesome. I thought of Marigold/Cosmo and Calendula as well. I always knew Opal. But I didn’t think of the idea of 10 or the idea of Halloween to get names! I love it. I was born in October so it was just a random thought for names!

Well, in Australia, October marks the middle of Spring, so Aviva came to mind immediately for me. Also in that same vein, Vesna. In addition, in relation to the Southern Hemisphere, Ostara.

In regard to the northern hemisphere, perhaps Sienna ‘orange-red’, Jasena ‘autumn’, Eve (All Hallows Eve), Pomona, Avalon ‘apple’, Ceridwen, Circe, Lilith, Morgana, (legendary witches), Hecate or Persephone (underworld associations).

Also, potentially Tobie.


[name_f]Luna[/name_f] (moon)
[name_u]Raven[/name_u] (black bird traditional with Halloween)
Aradia (character in a Wiccan book)
[name_f]Jeannie[/name_f] (the witch from I [name_u]Dream[/name_u] of Jeannie)
[name_u]Salem[/name_u] (Salem witch hunt)
[name_f]Samantha[/name_f] (the witch from Bewitched)
[name_m]Mabon[/name_m] (festival of the [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] equinox)

I would love to have an [name_u]October[/name_u] baby!

Some Autumnal inspired names would be

[name_f]Aurelia[/name_f] [name_f]Autumn[/name_f] ~ I like that this name loosely translates as golden autumn I think that would be so pretty.

[name_f]Maple[/name_f] [name_f]Felicity[/name_f]

[name_f]Blythe[/name_f] [name_u]October[/name_u] ~ I think this would be sweet as it means happy [name_u]October[/name_u] and [name_u]October[/name_u] is such a fun month.

[name_u]Hazel[/name_u] [name_f]Laura[/name_f]

For boys I really like the idea of [name_m]Cormac[/name_m] [name_u]Sullivan[/name_u], [name_u]Linden[/name_u] [name_m]Ezekiel[/name_m] & [name_u]Rowan[/name_u] [name_m]Alexander[/name_m] as some autumn inspired choices :maple_leaf::fallen_leaf:

I’d be seriously tempted by the wonderfully witchy [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] :spider:

[name_f]Vita[/name_f] [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] is a combo I’d love to use if I had another girl, and I think it would be fab for an [name_u]October[/name_u] baby. Sparky and a little bit dark.

Other random ideas that make me think of [name_u]October[/name_u] and autumn… :fallen_leaf:


i have some fall combos. :maple_leaf:

amelie rune
grace farmer
hallie piper
juno autumn
lilith november
luna harlow
maisie lynn
matilda boo
maura vesper
sophia ember
tabitha hazel
wednesday rain
willow agatha
winnie harvest
winnifred eve

i hope you’ll like them! :umbrella:

I’m trying to convince DH of [name_f]Anna[/name_f] [name_u]October[/name_u]. He’s not buying it…yet :sweat_smile:

I also love [name_f]Nora[/name_f] [name_f]Wednesday[/name_f] - feels very October-y to me!

Seconding suggestions of [name_u]Salem[/name_u] & [name_u]Hazel[/name_u] as well! And, I ADORE the idea of [name_f]Hallie[/name_f] as a nod to Halloween. Like…may have to steal that!

(Hmm…Hallie Wednesday…that may be one DH actually likes!)

[name_m]Can[/name_m] you tell I love [name_u]October[/name_u] & Halloween? And I live in the perfect place for it!

I’ve think about it quite a lot because I’d like to honor someone born in [name_u]October[/name_u] so…

  • [name_u]October[/name_u] - bit too obvious, isn’t it? But I love it as a middle name (Lily October) and the potentials nicknames of [name_u]Tobie[/name_u] and [name_u]Berry[/name_u] always melt my heart.
  • [name_f]Marigold[/name_f] - a flower associated to [name_u]October[/name_u]. Its orange-ish colour is the most [name_u]October[/name_u] thing I can think about.
  • [name_f]Cosima[/name_f] - related to Cosmos, another [name_u]October[/name_u] flower.
  • [name_u]Hazel[/name_u]

[name_f]Winifred[/name_f] [name_u]Hazel[/name_u] :fallen_leaf:

[name_u]Harmony[/name_u] (Related to Libra)


All these give off a Halloween/witchy vibe to me
