April Baby Names for Girls


April Baby Names

Sure, April and the French form of the name Avril are lovely, but you can have a little more fun with the offbeat baby name Abril. Debuting in the US top 1000 most popular baby names in 1998, Abril has been quietly popular, flying just beneath the radar of many parents. Abril is the Spanish form of the month name April. Like April and Avril, Abril also means “to open.”


April Baby Names

Pronounced GUY-ah, Gaia is a lovely baby name for girls that has roots in Greek mythology as the name of an earth goddess and universal mother. Gaia means “mother nature.” Gaia is making waves across Europe right now, appearing in Italy’s top 25 most popular names and the top 1000 in England. We would love to see the same for Gaia in the US in the coming years. It’s so chic!


April Baby Names

One of the sweetest April baby names for girls that American parents return to again and again lies in Daisy. Daisy has been a popular choice since records began in the US in 1880. In fact, this appellation is popular any all English-speaking communities on the planet. Daisy has English origins meaning “day’s eye” for the characteristic of the flower to open its petals at dawn. Further, daisies are the birth flower for the month of April.


April Baby Names

Haruka is a Japanese baby name for girls that sounds delightful. Japanese baby names’ meanings are dependent on the kanji used to construct them, meaning that Haruka can mean a few different things. “Spring, fragrance,” “spring, flower,” and “sunny weather, fragrance” are but a few possibilities.


April Baby Names

We understand that Chloe is one of the most popular baby names for girls in the US right now, but it is so appropriate for this list. Chloe has Greek roots that mean “young green shoot.” Mythological Demeter was referred to as Chloe in the spring months, and thus the meaning of the name, sprouts and new growth, is most fitting for a April baby names list. Chloe was the 24th most popular baby name for girls last year, so your Chloe will be in very good company.


April Baby Names

Aviva has Hebrew origins that mean “springlike,” “fresh,” and “dewy.” All great things we love about the season! Despite this name’s axiomatic charm, it has never appeared in the top 1000 baby names for girls in the US. Let’s change that, new parents!


April Baby Names

Ariel is a unisex name of Hebrew origin that means “lion of God.” We chose this one for girls as it relates to Aries, the first sign of the zodiac that many April babies are born under. If you are a parent who checks their horoscope regularly, this could be a fitting option for you.


April Baby Names

We’re getting a touch creative with the appellation Ivy and why we feel it is a perfect April baby name. Think of the first two letters of the name as Roman numerals “IV.” They form the number four which directly relates to this birth month. Ivy is one of the most popular botanical baby names in the US, ranking in the top 50 for girls.


April Baby Names

Israella is a feminine form of Israel, which originated in Hebrew as a unisex name meaning “one who struggles with God.” Sure, you could go with Israel, but we like this feminine spin. This name is a reference to Passover, which occurs during the month of April.


April Baby Names

Pronounced RAY-vah, Reva is a name with deep origins in both Hindi and Hebrew traditions. It also belongs to one of the seven sacred rivers in India and translates to “rain.” This moniker saw great popularity from the 1920s to the 1950s before being lost – but now it’s back and perfect for your spring baby!


April Baby Names

Pascale is a French name for girls from Hebrew that refers to Passover. This stylish choice that’s well-known in France is rare in the US today. If you’re expecting a baby girl on or around Passover/Easter, we can think of no other option that’s as elegant.


April Baby Names

In the ancient Hindu religion, Indra is the warrior god of sky and rain. Thus this name, with origins in Sanskrit and Hindu, means “having drops of rain.” We would love to hear this rare name in the US much more often. Isn’t it gorgeous?


April Baby Names

Renata is bigger than ever after it fell from use in the 1980s. We are pleased as punch that this regal name has returned! Renata has Latin origins and is very popular in Italy today. This name means “reborn,” making it an ideal April baby name. In addition to sounding absolutely amazing, Renata also gives parents the opportunity to use the wonderful nickname Ren.


April Baby Names

Anastasia is bigger than ever in the US today, and we are very pleased about it. The name comes from a Greek masculine name Anastasios which means “resurrection.” The name has a long history of use in Ancient Britain, Ireland, and, of course, Russia. Due to the meaning, it’s a great spring baby name for a girl born near Easter.


April Baby Names

Honestly, we feel that Juniper could go to both boys and girls, but we know most people disagree with that assessment! Juniper is currently a top 200 baby name for girls. The name sounds bright and fresh and perfect for an April baby. Juniper has roots in Latin as a name meaning “youthful.” You can’t find a cuter nickname than Juni!

April Baby Names for Boys


April Baby Names

We believe that Aries is a name that can work for both baby boys and girls. We suggested the name Ariel previously, and it is also a unisex name. Aries translates to “ram” and refers to the first sign of the zodiac and the main one April babies are born under. Currently, Aries is slightly more popular among boys than girls in the US, and it has been trending in that direction for a few years now.


April Baby Names

One of our favorite April baby names for boys, Pascal, is a name of French origin meaning “Easter” and “Passover.” 100 years ago, the name was a popular choice for baby boys in the US, but it’s been out of sight and mind for a long time now. Let’s bring it back! If you are looking for a fun variation, the Cornish version of this name is Pascoe. Isn’t it darling?


April Baby Names

Phoenix has been a popular baby name for both boys and girls since the early aughts. Phoenix comes from the Greek mythological bird of fire who symbolized rebirth and the sun. Its roots mean “dark red.” Phoenix is a perfect choice for spring as it is a time when nature seems to come back to life after the cold and darkness of winter.


April Baby Names

We get to have a little fun with Ivo, the same way we did with Ivy for girls. If you get creative with your thinking, Ivo is actually a perfect April baby name. Consider of the first two letters of the name as Roman numerals “IV.” They form the number four which directly relates to this birth month. Ivo is a wildly popular name across the UK and Europe and means “yew wood” or “archer.”


April Baby Names

Why should baby girls get to have all the fun with the name Diamond? It’s a perfectly unisex name that refers to a very strong and dazzling stone. With names like Desmond, Edmond, and Raymond being established options for boys, Diamond neatly fits into this class of “-mond” names for boys.


April Baby Names

The story of Passover is deeply tied to the Biblical character Moses. He was guided by God to tell the Israelites to paint lamb’s blood on their doorposts. This way, the angel would know that Jewish people lived there. It would pass over that house and not kill the firstborn child. This is where the name Passover comes from.

Moses is a name of Egyptian origin that means “to pull out of water.” It’s a fairly popular option today but not so common that it’s ubiquitous.


April Baby Names

The Welsh name Enfys is rare, even in its motherland! Enfys is a classic unisex option traditionally given to baby girls. But we love this spring baby name for boys. The name is pronounced EN-viss, which will likely throw some people, but patient parents will get a lot of love for this name. Enfys means “rainbow.” Rainbow!


April Baby Names

Xavi is a diminutive form of Xavier, a Basque and Arabic name that means “new house” or “bright.” Both meanings are perfect for an April baby! Xavi is a standalone name, and it ranked in the US top 1000 from 2010 to 2013. We see plenty of potential in this name and hope parents will continue choosing it for their sons.


April Baby Names

If you have not yet read Haruki Murakami‘s The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, do yourself a favor and check that out from the library the next time you are there. Haruki is a solid Japanese baby name for boys that can mean “spring child.” Most Japanese names’ meanings are derived from the kanji used to construct them, and we love this variation especially well.


April Baby Names

A name you do not hear on many playgrounds today, Dalfon is of Hebrew origin, and this name means “raindrop.” Is there a more appropriate spring baby name? This distinctive appellation has never scored favor among American parents, and we think it deserves some love!


April Baby Names

Tamir is a handsome name of Hebrew origin that means “owner of many palm trees.” We believe this makes it fitting as an April baby name because Palm Sunday comes one week before Easter. The feast celebrates Jesus’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem, where onlookers waved palm branches to welcome him.


April Baby Names

Rain is a lovely gender-neutral baby name that sounds equally good for both boys and girls. Thanks to other favorites like Shane or Jane, Rain will not seem out of place in class. We have also seen this name spelled with two N’s, as in Rainn. Go with your gut! A word of caution: another name that sounds exactly the same, Reign, has been heating up the baby name charts ever since Kourtney Kardashian chose it for her son.


April Baby Names

Avri is a multicultural name that can be found in a number of naming traditions. For our purposes, we turn to its Hebrew root, which means “springlike” or “fresh.” That makes this zesty appellation a perfect option for your April baby.

We’re going out on a limb with our final pick for boys. Jarek is a name from Slavic tradition, a shortened form of the many Jar-names like Jaroslaw. Again, this is another name with a somewhat tricky pronunciation for many English speakers. Jarek is pronounced YAHR-ek. This beautiful appellation means “spring.” You will not encounter the appellation often outside Poland, but we think it has plenty of potential for parents in the US.
