For centuries, people have looked to the stars for answers, seeking an explanation for life's purpose, searching for guidance from above, or merely trying to better understand their own or others' personalities. Astrology and horoscopes often provide insight into personality traits, love matches, and possible outcomes of events.
For many of us, expecting a new baby causes its own uncertainty and curiosity. We wonder what our baby's personality will be like, we try to predict what the first few months will be like, and we dream about how they will interact with others. Because of this, many people have thought to choose a name that is reflective of their little one's horoscope sign. But how do you choose? How does one find a name that represents all that their baby's astrology sign encompasses? To start off, here are 10 baby names that are based on your child's astrological sign.
12 Aries: March 21 - April 19
As the first star sign, Ariens are exciting people to be around! Passionate and rather impatient, they can't wait to get started on something, and it is hard for them to wait for all of the details or instructions. They are the true trailblazers, being the leader of the zodiac, and it shines through in their personalities. They are independent and thoughtful, always looking to try new things.
Ariens have good hearts and are very loyal. With their loyalty also comes total honesty—they always tell the truth. At times, though, this truthfulness can border on rudeness, as Aries sometimes lacks the diplomacy to deliver the truth in a gentle way.
Boy Names: Amos, Sharif, Nalan, Cord, Kendric
Girl Names: Amerie, Joanelle, Mel, Alysane, Darice
11 Taurus: April 20 - May 20
Like the ram, Taureans are very dependable and hardworking, always giving their best. They see the practical side of things and follow that path in their own lives. Taureans value honesty in others and are honest in return. They avoid drama in their relationships, and they are trustworthy and kind to all.
A passionate sign, Taureans unapologetically seek out pleasure in their lives. They believe in the saying, "work hard, play hard," and they believe in being in touch with their physical self.

The sign of the Twins! Geminis are an intriguing bunch, full of curiosity and wonder, and they are able to adapt and fit into nearly any situation.

They are smart and organized, and they make wonderful friends, being the first to offer help or advice and always willing to care for others.
At times, Virgos' tendency to want to help others can cause them to put themselves last, and this can cause them to become overloaded. They love routine and order, and they thrive on planning and organizing their lives.
