Summer is filled with barbecues, trips to the beach and beautiful sunsets, it’s no wonder summer provides inspiration – even to expecting families naming their children. Some names like Aqua and August are easily identifiable as summer season names, but others may surprise you. Whether your child is due during the summer solstice, or you just love this time of year, you can scrap the winter-inspired names for something more in line with the season.

Collecting the Social Security Administration’s 2015 popularity data, they curated a list of summer names based on their meaning and relevance to the season and then ranked the list according to the names’ popularity in 2015.
