12 Baby Names Inspired by Summer

Ahh, summer. One of my favorite times of the year, because of the warm weather and the ever-growing desire to go to the beach. Some of my fondest memories of growing up were in the summertime — backyard barbecues, beach vacations, and staying up late to catch lightning bugs.

Summer also brought on a new meaning when I survived the hot Florida summer months during my last two months of pregnancy with my oldest daughter. Although some of these months can be tough for a pregnant mama, they are so rewarding when you hold that little one in your arms for the first time.

In honor of my favorite time of the year, I wanted to share some of the baby names inspired by summer!
