This is a great name for your little baby boy, especially if his zodiac sign happens to be Saggitarius. This sagittarius constellation is represented by the infamous bow and arrow symbol, thus the name, “The Archer”. In ancient Greek mythology, it was the centaur who was able to bridge the gap between heaven and earth, just like your little miracle. Would you choose this name for your precious boy?

2. Rigel

Rigel is the brightest star of Orion, a well known constellation. In fact it is probably the most recognized constellation there is. Rigel hangs high up in the night sky and is considered a blue-white supergiant. It is expected to explode one day as a supernova. Now, the name Rigel is popularly used for boys but can be used to name little girls too. Either way, you’re about to explode from all the cuteness you’re witnessing courtesy to your little baby, this is the name for you.

Harry Potter fans, rejoice. The name Draco has always been a fan favorite. But did you know that it was a constellation sighted in the northern sky? The name Draco has Latin origins which translate into “dragon”. Talk about a unique, one of a kind name for your one of a kind baby.

4. Sky

Now that’s one pretty name. We love this name because of how beautifully it roles off the tongue. But we also love it because it’s a gender neutral name. The names Sky or Skylar are of Scandinavian origins and they mean “atmosphere seen from earth”. If you want a name that sounds compact and can glend in but still have a spacey meaning, this is a great option for you!

5. Aurora

Every Diney enthusiast remembers Aurora as one of the OG Princesses but that’s not all this name signifies. Have you ever heard of the Northern Lights? It is a spectacle that is only visible in the highest altitudes in very specific places. It occurs when electrons present in the Earth’s thin atmosphere connect with the nitrogen and oxygen. This creates beautiful hues of green, blue and purple known as the Aurora Borealis. It’s a stunning name for a stunningly gorgeous baby girl. This name has always been popular but it is steadily rising up the charts, making it a top pick.

6. Heaven

Now this name needs no explanation. If you best refer to your baby as a gift from God or a gift sent from heaven, then that’s the name for your favorite present. However, the name heaven is sometimes spelt backwards to produce one of the most popular names of 2020. Neveah was ranked 83rd on the list of most popular girl names of the year and we think she deserves a comeback. This name is unique, interesting and a little spunky. Just the perfect fit for a unique little girl. Besides, could you imagine Heaven and Neveah as twin girl names? It’s the best pairing yet!

7. Bianca

And although it’s mostly known for meaning “white” which is derived from its Latin origins, it is also the name of one of the moons of Uranus. Imagine meaning your baby after a far away moon to another planet, it can’t get more otherworldly than that! Besides, this name will blend right in with the rest. No one will know its secret meaning except you and your special little one!

8. Chanda
