This time, lights on color names!
Naming your child one of the colors of the rainbow can be a lot of fun, the choices are numerous and quite stylish! Your cherub will bring even more joy into your life with a spunky, colorful name 🙂
(I’ll put “obvious” choices as well as variants and shades of colors. – names are in “color scheme”)
Azure – perfect for a blue-eyed babe
Blake/Blakely – fair-haired or dark (!)
Blue – Beyoncé and Jay-Z paired this color with Ivy, the roman for their lucky number, 4 (IV)
Cattleya – this purple-ish name feels unexpected yet really pretty
Coral – a name fitted for a head-to-toe girly girl 😉
Crimson – a brother to sister Scarlett for red-loving parents
Grey/Gray – fit for an handsome gentleman (this name is gaining popularity since the release of the book Fifty Shades of Grey and its charismatic male character, Christian Grey). The “Gray” spelling can suit a little girl, too!
Indigo – Amazing name! The – o ending is sassy on a girl and Indie or even India can be nicknames to “tone it down”.
Kelly – Meaning “war” and also a shade of green
Kieran/Kiera/Kyra – little dark one
Magenta – Maggie is a possible nickname…
Melanie – dark, black. Mel, Laine or Lainey are nickname options.
Rainbow – the ultimate color name choice! Watch out, it makes a statement!
Rose – pink
Scarlett – Thanks to Gone With The Wind and Scarlett O’Hara, this color became a legitimate name! More recently, actress Scarlett Johansson made the name gain renewed popularity.
Vermilion – Vera or Millie are cute nicknames
I hope you enjoyed reading this post.
