Fall Baby Names

Expecting a baby this fall? Here are our 10 favourite autumn-related baby names


Fall is in the air, and if you’re due, you might be looking at the season for baby name inspiration. We don’t blame you: between the leaves, weather and holidays, it’s a time of beauty and celebration. So to help you with the name-game, here are our favourite autumn-related baby names.

Autumn: Timeless and elegant, “Autumn” may be a more obvious dedication to the season, but works throughout decades and doesn’t seem too trendy. You can’t name a baby “Fall,” but you can come close. 

Apple: If Gwyneth and Chris Martin can make it work, so can anybody. However, thanks to the couple’s imagination, what previously seemed eccentric is a modern tribute to falling leaves and fresh air. And those never go out of style.

Maple: Thanks to Jason Bateman and his wife, Amanda Anka, “Maple” is the little girl name of the season – literally. On par with “Autumn” in terms of tradition, you’d be hard-pressed to find a dedication to the outdoors. 

Hazel: Old baby names are back in a big way, and while “Hazel” embodies the spirit of the season, it also evokes tradition and class. True, it may be “cool” to currently channel the early 20th century, but there’s a reason this name hasn’t gone out of style. 

Maize: The perfect boy OR girl name, Maize channels the positivity of the harvest, which is integral to the season reliant on it. Poetry in baby name form.

Asher: Fireplaces, the colour of leaves, or even the “fall smell” so many of us think about with, “Asher” brings to mind all of these things. Traditionally for baby boys, you can also use it as a middle name for little girls – especially since more and more baby names are becoming interchangeable. 

Hunter: Strong like its namesake, “Hunter” may be one of the few boy baby names you can take after a season without succumbing to the “it-factor.” While the name saw a spike a few years back, there’s still something to be said about a name that musters courage and the outdoors (just look at any of Liam Neeson’s recent roles).

Forrest: Yes, Forrest Gump arguably saw a legion of “Forrests” born in the ‘90s, but despite the pop culture connotations, “Forrest” has maintained a place throughout centuries. Like with “Hazel,” we arguably return to these names for a purpose, so remember not to get too hung up on its place in cinematic history.

Aster: A surname that’s lasted generations, “Aster” not only falls under the umbrella of autumn-related baby names, but also can be a nod to 19th-century England and its well-to-do inhabitants (see: John Jacob-Aster). Turns out they loved fall, too.

Kale: Kale may be the food du jour, but this specific name is still more than just another word for “miracle ingredient.” Following in the footsteps of “Maize,” its simplicity shouldn’t be underestimated – especially if used as a middle name.
