With fall (more or less unofficially) upon us, we’ve all got autumn inspiration on the mind. From pumpkin spiced lattes to hot apple cider and chunky plaid scarves, fall is most definitely one of the most creative and expressive times of the year. After all, what other season inspires so much food, fashion, decor, and everything in between? We daresay none of ’em!

So of course, if you or a loved one happen to be expecting a little bundle of joy this season, you might be inspired by the falling leaves or crisp air to name your baby in honor of fall. As it so happens, there is no shortage of fall-themed baby names. They’re darling, seasonally-appropriate picks that have an evergreen flare as well.

From Autumn to Amber, these names are just as vibrant as the season itself. Which is why we’ve rounded up a few baby names to get your creative fall juices flowing.

Even if you’re *not* expecting anytime soon, it’s always fun to acquaint yourself with some popular baby names. You know, for future babies…or pets.
