Are you due a Valentines Day baby? Or do you plan on conceiving a little cherub on this day of love and romance…?
Then why not opt for a ‘romantic’ themed name?
Baby names that are derived from ‘Love’
Amorette – ooh la la! French for ‘little love’.
Aziza – arabic for ‘loved’, and also a character in the amazing novel ‘A Thousand Splendid Suns’ by Khaled Hosseini, my favourite book.
Carys – Welsh for love!
Femi – Nigerian for ‘love me’!
Demetri – derived from Demetrius, Greek god of fertility.
Freya – Norse goddess of love and fertility.
Imogen – Greek for ‘beloved child’.
Lennan – Irish for ‘sweetheart’.
Milena – Czech for ‘love, warmth and grace’.
Neha – means love in Sanskrit.
Thaddeus – Aramaic for ‘heart’.
Romantic-themed baby names
Valentine/Valentina – for obvious reasons!
Aurora – such a poetic name, the Greek goddess of Sunrise and also the name of the protagonist in the Disney film ‘Sleeping Beauty’…
Chloe – often featured in 17th Century romantic poetry and literature, such as Greek romance Daphnis and Chloe.
Darcy – Pride and Prejudice fans will get this one!
Bennet – another Pride and Prejudice inspired name!
Scarlet – red is the colour of romance and passion, so it’s fitting.
Ruby – for the same reasons as Scarlet!
Rose – the flower most commonly associated with love and romance…
Humphrey – ‘Casabalanca’ fans will like this one!
Ingrid – another ‘Casabalanca’ inspired name!

(Romeo & Juliet were intentionally missed due their love story being so tragic.)
