31 Baby Names That Mean Shadow

Apart from decorating the nursery, there are other exciting tasks parents undertake after the birth of their baby, and that is, picking a name. Since the baby will carry the name for the rest of his life, there’s no way naming should be taken lightly. Picking names with virtuous meanings is definitely a great option, but have you thought of going unconventional and giving your son or daughter a name meaning shadow? Sounds weird, right? Not when you realize the significance behind the shadow.

Light and shadow are opposites and it may seem like one of the two is lacking something. As an entity, shadow is as alive as light. It’s shadow that shapes the light, draws attention to light, and even integrates with light.

Now that you’ve read about the importance of shadows, let’s take a look at some baby names meaning shadow. There are plenty of them in MomJunction's database, ranging from modern and trendy to unique and even traditional. Take a look.
