9 Lucky Baby Names
What a blessing it is to have a baby on the way! For an extra kick of kismet, give one of these fortuitous names to your lucky little one.
Something about Asher just screams cool boy name. Meaning “blessed” and “happy”, the Biblical Asher was Jacob’s eighth son whom he blessed with a life of abundance. Who wouldn’t wish that for their son?
Not just for the introspective curly-haired college student, Felicity is a lovely name with an equally lovely meaning of “happy” and “lucky”. A less common variation of the name would be Felicite. Expecting a little man? Try Felicity’s male counterpart Felix instead.
Thanks to Gwen Stefani, this once vintage name meaning “blessed” and “fair” has been given a new sheen of modern rock star cool. Gwyneth is another variation (with another famous namesake) who shares the same fortuitous meaning.
This “blessed” English boy’s name is on the rise with hoards of parents gravitating towards its tough, yet gentlemanly sound. If Bennett is too popular for you, try the more buttoned-up Benedict instead.
With meanings like “bringer of joy” and “blessed” in Latin, we predict this charming vintage name will be making a comeback (what, with celebs like Paul McCartney and Bryce Dallas Howard naming their girls’ Beatrice.) It also bears ties to Beatrix Potter, author of the classic Peter Rabbit children’s books beloved by parents and kids everywhere.
Thanks to the force known as Brangelina, this formerly obscure Welsh name meaning “fortunate” is hot hot hot. Equal parts rebellious and refined, we can see why parents are jumping on the Maddox bandwagon. Spelling variations include Madox, Maddoc and Madoc.
This Sanskrit boy’s name isn’t one you hear every day, but we think it’s pretty stellar. Meaning “followed by good luck”, the lyrical Syon (pronounced like “Shawn”) is a perfect name for parents seeking something a bit out of the ordinary with a touch of magic.
This decidedly Welsh-sounding unisex name is a perfect fit for a “blessed” bairn—it’s unique, elegant, and auspicious. Carwyn is another spelling alternative. (Traditionally, the –wen spelling is for girls, and –wyn for boys.)
Meaning “blessed child” in Japanese, Keiko is a playful-sounding name that’s primarily been used for girls. (Although we think it works great as a boy’s name too.) While it’s a common name in Japan, it’s unusual enough in the U.S. to make your Keiko a true original.
