Fiery Names for Your Scorpio-Season Baby

Is your baby due between October 23 to November 21? Buckle up — you’ve got a baby Scorpio on the way. Headstrong, mysterious, and passionate, they are the powerhouse enigmas of the zodiac and they deserve a Scorpio name to match. A secretive water sign with a surprisingly fiery nature, Scorpions feel emotions intensely (think Gordon Ramsay on a bad day in Hell’s Kitchen) but tend to reveal their private thoughts only to their most trusted inner circle. You can expect a bit of a moody roller coaster with your Scorpio child, but you’ll be in awe of their impressive charisma, keen intuition, powerful empathy, and nearly magical ability to be in the right place at the right time.

So how does a parent choose the perfect Scorpio baby name for such a mystical, hard-to-pin down creature? We checked in with Ophira Adut, official Elle astrologer and cofounder of Astrostyle, to learn what parents should take into account when picking Scorpio baby names. “Scorpio is the sign of power, and this baby can grow up to be a formidable leader,” she says. “A name that conveys strength and commands respect will help draw out and cultivate this energy.”

In addition, we consulted Jennifer Moss, author and founder of — who told us, “Scorpios tend to be drawn to the metaphysical and tend to keep their inner feelings and thoughts hidden and secret, so names related to this characteristic might be appropriate, such as Mystery, Rune, Candide, or Velia.” But, she adds, “They are also very confident and exude attractiveness. So names like Beau, Kevin, and Zane would also go with the Scorpio vibe.”

We also combed through names connected to the animal symbols of the scorpion: the eagle, the snake, and the phoenix. The sign is co-ruled by Mars and Pluto, planets with a warrior vibe. Scorpio’s colors are red, gold, brown, and black, so we sought out names related to those hues as well. Birthstones for Scorpio traditionally have included topaz, citrine, and opal.
