Let’s start with an obvious one! You don’t get much more autumnal than the word Autumn, which makes an unusual but beautiful name for a baby born at this time of year.
Latin for ‘the golden one’, Aurelia is a beautiful name with ethereal undertones. A great choice if you are drawn to the hugely popular Olivia and Amelia but are looking for something a little more unusual.

The official flower for September, the aster is a stunning lilac bloom, whose name comes from the Greek word for star.
Similar to Laura and Lauren but with a more botanical edge, Laurel relates back to the laurel wreaths worn by the ancient Romans, signifying peace and success. A beautiful name with beautiful connotations.
