101 Fall-Inspired Girl and Boy Names for Your Baby

The time in which our baby is born not only helps us to live a unique experience in motherhood, but it can also serve as inspiration for the moment of choosing his name.

Some time ago we shared 101 names for boys and girls inspired by spring and 101 names for girls and boys inspired by summer, and now that we are about to change the season, it is time to share 101 names for girls and boys inspired by autumn to your baby , as well as some facts about babies born in this season.

autumn babies

Fall-born babies are those born between the autumnal equinox , which occurs between September 22 and 23 in the Northern Hemisphere, and the winter solstice , between December 21 and 22, while in the Southern Hemisphere It happens between March 20 and 21, and June 20 and 21.

Autumn is a time that, after the vitality of summer, invites us to reflection and introspection. Autumn light is usually softer, the stars are more visible in the night sky and the days are gradually getting shorter. Emotionally, we associate autumn with melancholy and detachment, letting go of what is not essential to be prepared and make way for the new.

During this period, we also have some important dates in the northern hemisphere that can inspire us to choose the name that our baby will bear, such as International Music Day (October 1 and November 22 in some countries for Saint Cecilia, patron saint of musicians), World Astronomy Day (October 1), World Animal Day (October 4), World Philosophy Day (November 17), and International Euskera Day (October 3 from December).

Regarding babies, some studies have analyzed how the time in which they are born influences them, giving us some curious facts about them. For example, a UK study found that babies born in the early fall will be stronger and taller. The effect could be due to concentrations of the light-dependent hormone melatonin in the mother’s body, which could stimulate the secretion of growth hormones.

Another study, which analyzed how the time of year in which they are born influences their character, found that autumn babies have a very balanced personality and are not prone to depression, as reaffirmed by another study, which found that their mental health tends to be better than that of those born at other times of the year .

On the other hand, according to a study published in the Journal of Aging Research, babies born in the fall are more likely to live to be one hundred years old than those born at other times of the year.
