January-Inspired Baby Name Inspiration

For those of you who are strugging to pick the perfect moniker for your incoming bundle of joy, why not go for a January-inspired baby name? We've searched high and low for the most adorable, beautiful, classical and modern names for you to pick from.

Garnet

January's births tone. We love a gemstone baby name!

Winter

This one speaks for itself...

Alba

Latin for 'white', and a character in The Time Traveller's Wife, this is one of our favourites.

Bear

Bear is becoming more popular amongst parents - we're thinking of fluffy polar bears, and brown bears in cold regions! Bears definitely give us wintery, January vibes.

Robin/Robyn

For the famous and beautiful winter bird we see a lot of in the UK.

Una

Latin for 'one', and January is the first month of the year...

Iris

A winter flower

Neve

Gaelic name meaning 'bright' - think fresh white snow, and the bright winter sun!

Nova

Latin for 'new' - very apt, we think.

Neo

Also a Latin variation of 'new', as well as meaning the same in the Tswana language, this is a great choice.

Eira

Welsh for 'snow'

Lumi

Finnish for 'snow'

Hope

A nice choice for anyone who has hopes for a better 2022!

Aspen

A graceful tree that towers gloriously in some colder countries in the winter.

Giles

Latin for 'young goat', which is fitting for a little Capricorn baby!

January

Why not name your baby after the month? January Jones (actress) has fared well with her unusual name!

Navin

Hindi name meaning 'new'.

Orin

Aramaic name meaning 'light' or 'pine tree'.

Prima

Latin for 'first'

Storm

For babies born during a bout of bad weather!

Beatrice

Meaning 'she who brings happiness', this is very fitting for the new addition to your family who is arriving to bring you love and joy in 2022.

Dawn

'A new dawn, a new day...' as the song by Nina Simone goes. A new year, too!

Dagny

Norse for 'a new day' - an unusual and very Scandi-inspired name, we think.

Altan

Turkish for 'red sunrise'. This would be full of meaning for those of you with a baby born on a cold January morning.

Felix

Meaning 'happy and lucky', this name could be a positive omen for 2022.

Aurora

The Northern Lights are stunning, especially in the winter months, and we think this is a gorgeous name for a January baby.
