30+ "Adventurous" Baby Names for Brave Little Boys & Girls

Being strong and brave is something that we talk about almost daily in our home. With three little girls, it’s easy to tell them they’re pretty or cute or adorable. We have to make a conscious effort to make sure they know how strong and brave, funny and smart they are. We don’t want them growing up thinking that looks are the only important thing — we want them to have a diverse childhood. Instead of just playing with baby dolls, we want them exploring. We want them climbing trees and running through fields, throwing rocks and exploring nature. We want them to be adventurers!

If you are hoping for the same, consider an adventurous name for your little one. Here are 30+ examples of adventurous baby names for boys and girls…

Picking a Strong Latino Name for Our Son

I’m obsessed with that name. Fast forward 7 years after the wedding, the hubby and I were so excited to find out we were expecting a baby boy. I immediately thought SEBASTIAN! We’ll name him Sebastian.

The Beautiful Meaning Behind Amani's Name

Choosing a baby name is such a big decision. Some couples are able to select one with ease, while others are unable to agree until after the baby is born. A name can be passed down from previous generations or it can be a modern variation or hybrid of classic names. As for my newest daughter, I wanted a name for her that would be meaningful and special, yet also pay homage to a dear and beloved person in my life. For those reasons, I chose the name Amani, after my favorite cousin, meaning “wishes, aspirations.”
