When I was brainstorming baby names for my unborn baby boy, there was one overall theme: peacefulness.
My unexpected pregnancy sent me spiraling into a turbulent, life-evaluating transitional time in my life, and the one thing I needed was zen. Calm. Tranquility. And so I went with a name that not only had a peaceful meaning, but had a soft and poetic sound: Noah. (This was before the Noah boom hit, although it’s the perfect name for my sweet, quiet, contemplative little boy.)
If you’re drawn to that same kind of vibe, check out these baby name ideas that have a soft sound, a calm vibe, and/or the meaning of peace. (Hint: A lot of these baby names could be perfect for a meaningful middle name.):
