The time in which our baby is born not only helps us to live a unique experience in motherhood, but it can also serve as inspiration for the moment of choosing his name .
We share 101 names for boys and girls inspired by the spring season , as well as some information about babies born in this colorful and happy season.
Spring-born babies are those born between the vernal equinox , which occurs between March 20 and 21, and the summer solstice , between June 20 and 21 in the northern hemisphere, while in the hemisphere south occurs between September 22 and 23, and December 21 and 22.
Spring is a time of year that we associate with many positive elements: flowers bloom, trees turn green and the world fills with beautiful colors and aromas. For this reason, many people relate the spring season with joy, happiness, rebirth and especially, nature.
During this period, we also have some important dates in the northern hemisphere that can serve as inspiration , such as the International Day of Forests (March 21), Easter Day, Mother Earth Day (April 22), Mother’s Day in many countries, World Light Day (May 16) and World Environment Day (June 5).
Regarding babies, some studies have analyzed how the time in which they are born influences them, giving us some curious facts about them. For example, research found that spring-born babies tend to be more optimistic and radiate energy .
On the other hand, a study in the journal Sleep found that people with spring and summer birthdays generally go to bed later than those born in the fall and winter. They tend to be “night owls.”
Health-wise, we have a study of 300,000 young adults , which found that those with early spring birthdays are less prone to nearsightedness, compared to those born in the summer months.
Finally, exposure to daylight during the increasingly long days of spring has positive effects on mothers, resulting in taller babies being born from late March to late June.
