If you are an OG Next of Kin Parents Podcast listener you'll know I love myself some baby name chat. So if you are pregnant and expecting in February, or just looking for a bit of baby name inspiration then here are my suggestions.
Inspo 1: February Birth Stone
The birth stone for February babies is the Amethyst, which is a great unpopular name in itself or you could opt for a name like Violet or Amara. The stone is associated with wisdom, clear-headed decision-making, and protection from poison. In Indian religious traditions, amethyst is associated with the crown chakra, the source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to the universe.
Inspo 2: Valentines Day
Is there a sweeter theme for your little ones name than a celebration of love? Below are just a few love-themed names to consider.
Inspo 3: Patron Saints Celebrations
Did you know that 1st Feb is when St Brigid, the patron saint of Ireland and newborn babies is celebrated in Ireland? And, celebrated on February 3, St. Blaise, the patron saint of sore throats and animals. He was a legendary healer and tamer of animals, and modern believers often pray to him for help in times of illness.
Inspo 4: Nature
Rowan is the name of a tree associated with the month of February in the Celtic Lunar Calendar. Balancing beauty and strength, the rowan tree bears bright red berries and can survive in an incredibly diverse variety of locations and conditions. The rowan, therefore, symbolizes power, balance, mystery, and healing.
Inspo 5: Chinese New Year
This year we'll be celebrating the Lunar New Year on 10th February. This time is all about celebrating the abundance and potential of the forthcoming new year, and doesn't that just correlate wonderfully with the celebration of new life!
