Baby Names That Mean Fire

There are tons of possibilities for naming your baby and it’s a topic that causes endless conversations (and arguments) when you’re pregnant.

Maybe you’ve got really fixed ideas about what you want or not a clue about where to start. One big trend right now are names around a theme, and especially names that mean fire. 

Love the idea of a sparky name? One that makes you think of a burning lust for life or a passion to achieve? Maybe you’re just someone who loves staring into flames or you like the idea of a name that comes from one of our essential elements.
