After a long hot summer, the first sign of a cool day sends us diving for the tracksuits and hoodies. Families dig out the fire pits and bunker down for the cooler months. 

The days get shorter, and the trees start to turn amazing shades of red and gold. It’s such a beautiful time of the year, and an even better time to be expecting a baby. No sweaty canckles to be seen (thankfully). 

Why not embrace the spirit of the season, and choose a name for your baby that captures the warmth and beauty of autumn?  

From classic favorites to unique gems, here are 20 adorable autumn-inspired names that are sure to bring a smile to your face.

A baby name list for cosy feels

Autumn: Let’s start with the most obvious choice! Autumn evokes images of falling leaves, hot drinks, and cuddly sweaters. It’s a timeless name that exudes a sense of tranquility and beauty.

Amber: Like the rich hue of amber, this name casts warmth and elegance. It’s a perfect choice for a baby girl who’ll brighten your life.

Rowan: Derived from the rowan tree, this unisex name symbolizes protection and strength. It’s a wonderful option for parents looking for something both earthy and sophisticated.

Hazel: Inspired by the hazel tree and its clusters of golden-brown nuts, Hazel is a charming name that has been gaining popularity in recent years. It’s sweet, yet strong, making it suitable for any little girl.

Crispin: This unique name has a crisp, autumnal feel to it. Derived from the Latin word “crispus,” meaning curly-haired or curly-headed, Crispin has a playful charm that sets it apart.

Maple: Just like the nostalgic colours of a maple tree with its fiery foliage, this name brings to mind images of beauty and resilience. Maple is a sweet and spunky choice with a woodsy feel. 

Rory: Short for Aurora, meaning “dawn” (and a reference to the ultimate autumn TV show – Gilmore Girls) Rory has a whimsical quality that captures the magic of the changing seasons. It’s a versatile name that suits any gender. 

Finn: With its Gaelic origins and messy-haired charm, Finn is a name that evokes the spirit of autumn adventures. Whether your little one is climbing trees or jumping in piles of leaves, Finn is sure to keep up with their boundless energy.

Sage: Symbolising wisdom and peace, Sage is a gender-neutral name that has a serene, earthy vibe. It’s a perfect choice for parents who value simplicity and elegance.

Marigold: Bright and cheerful, Marigold is a name that hones in on the sunnier aspects of autumn – when buttery light slips in between trees. Named after the vibrant yellow flower, it carries a girlish glow. 

Asher: Derived from the ash tree, Asher is a name that evokes strength and resilience. It’s a timeless choice for parents who appreciate classic, yet distinctive names.

Ivy: With its trailing vines and lush green leaves, Ivy brings to mind the beauty of nature. It’s simple, yet enchanting. And it happens to be the name of a pretty great Taylor Swift. 

Roux: This French name, meaning “reddish-brown,” is as warm and comforting as a cup of hot choccy (teeming with marshmallows, of course) on a chilly autumn day. The European feel is also a plus. 

Orson: Meaning “bear cub,” Orson has a charming, outdoorsy feel that is perfect for the adventurous spirit of autumn. It’s a strong and distinctive name that will grow with your little boy.

Juniper: Named after the aromatic evergreen shrub, Juniper has a fresh, botanical quality that is both timeless and trendy. Looking for a bit of sweetness and whimsy in a name? This one’s spot on. 

Birch: Like the slender, silver-barked tree it’s named after, Birch gives an energy of grace and strength. It’s a little unconventional, but that’s all the rage these days. 

Aurelia: Meaning “golden” in Latin, Aurelia sounds a bit like a princess of some fantastical land. It feels warm and light, with a mystical quality to it. You can go with “Elle” or “Lia” for short!

Cedar: Strong and sturdy (which your baby might not be yet, but will get there), Cedar is a name that symbolises resilience and endurance. It’s another nature-inspired choice, grounded in a woodsiness. 

Ember: Reminiscent of a crackling fire on a cool autumn evening, Ember is for the baby that brings flares of warm light into your life. Energy, vitality, and a knack for leaving their mark – this name is a great fit for fiery little souls. 

Scarlett: With its fiery red hue, Scarlett captures the passion and vibrancy of autumn. It’s a bold and beautiful choice that gives cuteness now, and gracefulness as they grow up. 

Wrapping it up

There’s a reason autumn inspires countless Pinterest boards, music playlists, and movie marathons (Harry Potter, When Harry Met Sally, Fantastic Mr.Fox). It’s a season that fills our coffee cups and warms us up inside. 

So, we hope that these cosy names feel like a natural addition to your impressively-long Notes spp baby name list – whether you’re drawn to the rustic charm of Asher or the whimsical feel Marigold. Follow your gut to the name that matches your little family.
