Autumn Name Meaning

Arguably the most beautiful of seasons, Autumn is a wonderful name for a little girl. With cozy nights, stunning leaves, and joyful gatherings, the season has every association needed to be a great name.

Right on the money with the word name trend, Autumn is at home on the charts with her seasonal sister Summer. Spring and Winter are also used, though Summer and Autumn win out in popularity. While she is a word name, she’s avoiding feeling too “wordy”, cementing herself firmly in name territory. This is helped partly due to her similarity in sound to Aubrey and Audrey. She’s also a nature name pick, working well alongside Harper, Hazel, and Paisley.

Autumn’s popularity is relatively new, though her use as a word stretches far beyond that. Despite her newfound popularity, Autumn doesn’t feel trendy. She has a maturity about her that avoids feeling cutesy, giving her a one up over the modern competition. She’s easy to spell and say, making her the perfect pick for a little one.

Autumn is an artist at heart, loving nothing more than painting or sketching if given the chance. She’s always beaming with love and care, bringing her natural warmth and glow into every room she enters.

  1. I needed a name that started with the letter A and since Autumn is my favorite time of year that’s the name I chose.

  2. We had a heck of a time figuring out where to start. We dud have some “favorites” but they were each knocked down by the partner. My husband suggested that we pull one of those “top 100” names list, then each go through the list and narrow down names from there…that did not work. In the end none of his final names matched my final names. So the next step, we went bigger.

    I found a 1000 baby girl name list, and repeated the same process. But that proved tedious, because that is 1000 names! So, on our next long car ride together we brought the list and as I said the names aloud (the name just resonates differently aloud than in your head) we had a 2 rules: 1) any apprehension, the name stays: the thought: something drawing you to the name, 2) any one who has a hard NO on a name immediately overrides any apprehension or like of the other (in the end we want a name that we both can agree to and love). We went down from 1000 to 100 this way, then 100 to 40, then 40 to 10. We were both surprised by out top 10 because we had thoughts of our “favorites” but none of them were present.

    This was done around 20 weeks. I being one of the most indecisive people in the world held onto that list until the day of her birth. I would teeter between one name then next week another. My husband was frustrated because he wanted a name now, but he was very patient with me. In the end we chose the name for a few reasons: 1) Autumn is our favorite time of year, 2) it was unique to us, as we did know many/any Autumn’s, 3) it flowed well with her middle name Elizabeth (my husband liked that name for its seemingly infinite possible nicknames; it was not one of my tops, but it was agreeable as a middle name with Autumn).

  3. Born in the fall perfect for a girl!

  4. We chose the name Autumn because it is one of the only names my husband and I could agree on.
    I like it because it isn’t that common where we live but it isnt too far out there.
    Plus Autumn/Fall is my favorite season!

  5. My dad named her Autumn. He passed away four months after she was born.

  6. Her father named

  7. It’s different and I had her in the Autumn (October)

  8. Well initially she’s was going to be named after her dad, but he declined. One day while at work(Walmart), new modules where coming in(summer out, fall in). I noticed a door hanger stating HELLO AUTUMN! I fell in love with the name. I’ve always love the fall months and colors. So, being that she would make her arrival in fall, what other name could she have had other than Autumn Faith. My pumpkin of joy!!

  9. Both mine and her daddy’s favorite season of the year.

  10. My husband and I both have names that start with A, so we wanted to continue the pattern for our children. We both liked the name Autumn because we thought it was pretty, and we like that it’s not a super common name yet it’s not unusual. I also like that people can easily spell and pronounce it. Autumn is also my favorite season but that wasn’t really a deciding factor, more of an added bonus 😉
