In Arabic, the meaning of Amber is ‘jewel’. You may know it by the honey-coloured stone that’s actually made of fossilised tree resin.


In Hebrew, the meaning of the name ‘Ash’ is happy. It’s also a beautiful tree.


Call a spade a spade! One of the most perfect names for a baby born in autumn is... Autumn, from the Latin word ‘autumnus’.



Krya comes from the Egyptian word for ‘sun’.


This pretty name means sky and is taken from the old Norse ‘sky’, meaning ‘cloud’.


Once again, the straightforward English name Summer – associated with the warmest season of the year – wins our vote!

Of English origin, this name means ‘flower’ or ‘bloom’.


Old English in origin, Dawn takes its meaning from the first appearance of light, or daybreak.


Hazel comes from the name of the tree, or the colour, and was originally spelled hæsel in Old English.



This comes from the Old English, meaning, ‘dwelling by the clearing by the hollow’. But of course, it conjures up thoughts of the perfect Christmas plant.


Jack, meaning ‘God is gracious’, is forever tied to Jack Frost – a figure representing ice, snow, sleet, winter, and freezing cold in books, stories and film.


This Irish girl’s name, meaning ‘snow’, can also be spelled with its English form of Neve.
