**********************

Astrid

My favourite A girls name :). In Norse it means divine strength/ divinely beautiful.

*****

Annora

Less heard of than Anna and Annabelle with a more old fashioned feel. In Latin it means Honor.

*****

Alexa

A more fresh and spunky feel than Alexandra a variant meaning “defending men.”

*****

Aspen

With a nature feel for those of us looking to connect our child to the earth. It is both a tree in the Poplar family and a ski resort in Colorado.

*****

Alanis

Probably most famous for the singer, it is the feminine form of Alan meaning cheerful 🙂

*****

Araminta

With many cute nickname options including Minty. This name is of Greek origin and means “defender.”

*****

Aveline

This name is beautiful, with a similar feel to Madelyn and Evelyn it would not be out of place. Of French roots a cognate of Hazel.

*****

Anouk

Another Ann name this one from France. Often mispronounced but very pretty. Meaning “grace”.

*****

Arielle

A pretty elle name beginning with A :).  The French feminine form of Ariel.

Name for September 1st- Araminta

Meaning unknown. This name was (first?) used by William Congreve in his comedy ‘The Old Bachelor’ (1693) and later by Sir John Vanbrugh in his comedy ‘The Confederacy’ (1705). This was the real name of abolitionist Harriet Tubman (1820-1913), who was born Araminta Ross (Behindthename)
