73 Stellar Gemini Baby Names with Deep Meanings

73 Stellar Gemini Baby Names with Deep Meanings

Do you have a baby (or two) due between May 21 and June 21?

Or perhaps you just feel inspired by the magic of the zodiac twins?

Whatever your reasons, the stars have aligned to bring you our favorite Gemini baby names.

Geminis are said to be sociable, adaptable, witty, and curious—think social butterfly. 🦋

(Just be warned that, like butterflies, they can also be flighty.)

Our Gemini names look to capture the spirit of this beautifully complex creature.

Of course, if you’re expecting twins, many of these Gemini-inspired names actually have “twin” as part of their meaning.

For example, what about Odion (meaning “first born twin”) and Kato (meaning “second born twin”)?

And because Gemini is the sign of the twins, it seems fitting that we should include several double-barrel names on our list.

That way, like the Gemini, you can get the best of both worlds.

Names like Amelia-Rose and Cora-Lee make the list, as well as Alfie-Jay and Tyler-James.

We’ve also included some names inspired by famous Geminis so that you can draw from some of their built-in Gemini magic.

(Spoiler alert: there’s a Beatle on the list.)
