Summer Baby Names For Girls

1. Summer

The name ranks 173 on the Social Security Administration list. This unique and pretty name would make a perfect moniker for your warm weather little girl.

Megan May, a mother of two and vlogger, shares a few baby girl names inspired by the summer season. The most obvious name is Summer, and she says, “I had to add Summer into my summertime girl names. So yes, Summer can be spelled two different ways. It obviously can be spelled like Summer, S-U-M-M-E-R, but I also have a cousin named Sommer, who’s spelled as S-O-M-M-E-R. So those are two different types of spellings, obviously, the S-U is much more common.
