There are many reasons to love springtime. From the fresh rain to the budding flowers, the season signifies new life... which is exactly what you just brought into the world, too! Aside from your obvious excitement over the new little family member, you might be excited about getting back outdoors after a long winter. If your favorite season is spring, nothing feels quite as refreshing as this fresh stretch of months — spring ushers in a change in scenery (and serenity) to shake you out of any slump. So, why wouldn't you want to give your baby a spring-inspired name?

If you're particularly outdoorsy, a nature name or flower name might be in order. For instance, a name like Birdie is cute on its own and calls on all the springtime twittering of baby birds in nests. Or it could be a spring-y nickname for a little Beatrice, which means "she who brings happiness." That seems absolutely and utterly fitting for a spring baby. Spring is also so magical that even magical names don't seem out of the question. The name Faye means "fairy," a mythical creature as magical as they come. If you're in the South, you've no doubt met an April Faye, June Faye, Savannah Faye, or something along those lines. It's been a popular middle name for decades and immediately sounds warm and sunny.

It totally makes sense for your brand-new addition to have a name inspired by this time of year. After all, from spring jokes to spring captions, there's inspiration to be found no matter where you look.
